Straight from my messy stove to you.

Red Cabbage Apple Chicken:

  • 4 links of sweet/apple chicken sausage (recommend Applegate)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1.5 – 2 bags of pre-shredded red cabbage OR 1 medium head shredded by hand/food processor
  • 2 cups of green apples, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, sliced 
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine (cooking or table wine)
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener (my choice: light agave nectar)
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  1. You will need 1 large saute pan with lid.
  2. If your sausage is not pre-cooked, take the raw sausage out of the casing and break up and begin to cook in the coconut oil in the large saute pan; if your sausage is pre-cooked, simply remove from the casing and chop up into medium sized chunks.
  3. Place onion and sausage in the coconut oil and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring gently.
  5. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes.  You will want the cabbage to be tender, so don’t rush this part.

**I didn’t have any apple cider and made this without it the first time — it was still delicious, so don’t fret if you don’t have that ingredient for this dish.**

That’s all folks — this is a really tasty and unique dish.  Highly recommend for those of you who want something with leftovers or feeds a small family.  I hope you enjoy!
