Chicken & Apple Sausage Skillet with Kale

Cast-iron cookware is a favorite in our Test Kitchen due to its supreme heat retention, the nonstick properties of the cooking surface, plus its durability.

This Chicken & Apple Sausage Skillet, plus Apple & Onion Cornbread make a great pairing for a simple, yet sensational weeknight meal. A healthier alternative to traditional sausages, Aidells Chicken & Apple Smoked Sausages are gluten- and nitrate-free, with no added hormones.

Test Kitchen Tip

Lobe an apple by standing it upright, then slice off the sides of the apple around, but not too close to, the core.


Heat oil in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Add sausages and onion; sauté until sausages begin to brown, 78 minutes. Add apples, garlic, and pepper flakes; cook 1 minute.

Deglaze skillet with cider; bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium.

Stir in kale; cook until beginning to wilt, 23 minutes. Stir in vinegar, then season with salt and pepper.
