Chicken Sausage with Kale, Chickpeas, & Tomatoes


I’m no Rachel Ray, but I love meals that are cooked in less than 30 minutes. If the recipe is quick, simple, & tastes great I am all for it.

When I got home from picking up Ava at daycare yesterday I had nothing planned for dinner. I literally opened the fridge and found a bag of kale and a pint of grape tomatoes in my vegetable drawer and thought, what can I do with this? Luckily I had some chicken sausage in the freezer that I quickly thawed and was excited I had something to throw together. While Ava napped I got to prepping… this meal literally took 20 minutes and was a huge hit. The flavors were on point.

We will definitely be making this recipe again.

Chicken Sausage with Kale, Chickpeas, & Tomatoes



1 package Al Fresco Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage

1 bag of chopped kale

1 can of chickpeas, drained

1/2 pint of grape tomatoes, halved

1/4 cup sherry wine

1/2 cup chicken broth

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp oregano

salt & pepper to taste

2 tablespoons olive oil


Heat a large pan to medium heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add in grape tomatoes and saute for 3-4 minutes. Add in kale, chicken broth, & sherry wine and cook for 5 minutes.


Drizzle remaining oil and seasonings, mix well. Remove kale mixture from pan and place into serving dish. Add chicken sausage to pan and cook 8-10 minutes or until cooked (as directed by package). Add the Kale mixture back to the pan and mix well. Return everything back to serving dish and eat!



This meal would also be great served over whole grain pasta or rice… or even on a sandwich!
