15-Minute Cajun Chicken & Beef Sausage Meal Prep

Prep: 5 min
Cook: 15 min
Total: 20 min

Ingredients for 4 hearty servings:

  • 1 1/4 lb raw chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • Seasoning
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon onion power
    • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon sage
  • 2 beef sausages (142g),cut into 1-inch pieces
    • Note: sausage must be nitrate free, natural grass-fed; I used Teton Waters Ranch gluten free sausages
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup chopped (red) onion
  • 1 large bell pepper, chopped (I used 1/2 red, 1/2 yellow)
  • 2 medium zucchinis, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 6oz can crushed tomatoes
  • sea salt & pepper to taste


Step 1

Season chicken breast chunks with the seasoning.

Step 2

Set a nonstick skillet on high heat.  Once the skillet is hot, spray with a little olive oil and toss in the chicken.  Sear the chicken for about 6 minutes until the outside edges are charred.  Make some space in the skillet and toss in the sausage pieces.  Sear for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until the outside edges are seared – vigorously shake the pan to prevent the food from sticking, then dump the chicken and sausage into a bowl.

Step 3

Place the skillet on MEDIUM heat, lightly spray it with olive oil again, then toss in garlic and onions.  Caramelize the onions for 2 minutes and do not let the garlic burn.  Then add in the bell peppers and zucchinis.  Continuously stir for 3 to 5 minutes until the outside edges of the veggies begin to sear.

Step 4

Pour in the crushed tomatoes and add the chicken and beef back to the skillet.  Toss everything together and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 5

Season to taste with sea salt & pepper. Note, if your mixture is “too dry,” simply add tablespoons of chicken broth OR more crushed tomatoes until you reach the desired consistency. You can keep this meal low-carb and enjoy it with cauliflower rice another BOOST of vegetables, or enjoy with brown rice or quinoa.
