One pot meals are everything when it comes to getting dinner served quickly during the week. Monday – Thursday is the busiest part of our week so easy dinners are a must. They are a great way for me to prepare dinner ahead of time so I’ve been experimenting a bit with a few and this chicken and sausage dirty rice recipe will be added to the rotation indefinitely. It’s a great alternative to the famous beef and broccoli recipe we all love.
