Key Ingredients in Spicy Chicken Sausage Stew

  • Chicken Sausage: Stew isn’t complete without a protein. I opted for chicken sausage because it tastes great and cooks faster than beef traditionally used in stew.
  • Kale: Packs a lot of nutrients and cooks fast; remove the stem and shred leaves into smaller bits so its tender and not chewy.
  • Yukon Potatoes: Used to thicken the stew.
  • Dijon Mustard: Enriches the color and taste of the stew, adding a spicy/tangy combination.
  • Chicken Stock: A natural base for stew; adds moisture, flavor and texture.
  • Heavy Cream: Thickens the stew while adding a creamy consistency.
Yield: 6 servings
