One Pot Meal | Chicken + Turkey Sausage Dirty Rice

One pot meals are everything when it comes to getting dinner served quickly during the week. Monday – Thursday is brutal around here, and we haven’t added in Spring sports yet. One pot meals are a great way for me to prepare dinner ahead of time so I’ve been experimenting a bit with a few and this one will be added to the rotation indefinitely. I think it will replace the beef and broccoli recipe that everyone is pretty much tired of eating.

I adapted this recipe from The Chunky Chef and made it a little milder for the kids.

    No temp was specified on the oven temp so I made a wild guess and did 350. Also improvised with a cast iron skillet and covered with foil to bake so we will see how it turns out. In the oven now!

      Thank you for letting me know I forgot to add the temp. How did it turn out!

    350 ended up too low. The rice wasn’t cooked all the way at 40 min so I bumped it up to 400 for another 20 min and that did the trick. Loved the meal, so did my hubs!
