al fresco’s sweet apple chicken e and Minute Rice’s brown rice makes dinner easy

al fresco is definitely a chicken sausage I can always count on to help me make a tasty meal.  With my kids either living out of the house or my daughter being away at college easy and tasty are what I am looking for.

I loved using the al fresco chicken patties in my last recipe which you can find here. I have also made a recipe using al fresco chicken meatballs which you can find here.


For this recipe, I wanted to try their sweet apple chicken sausage with pure Vermont Maple Syrup. You will not believe it but it has small little pieces of apple in every bite.  My husband picked out the asparagus and the crinkle cut carrots.  We picked out the brown rice for something different from Minute Rice.


This recipe was easy to make and very filling.  I wish I would have thought of it and wrapped it in a wheat or white flour tortilla.  But I didn’t so we will try that next time and add a bit of cheese.
