Chicken Sausage Skillet

My sister Mary, an excellent cook, shared this wonderful recipe—I've always loved its tantalizing blend of ingredients. It came to mind immediately when I saw the announcement for CW's Savory Stir-Fry and Skillet Suppers contest. (I didn't tell Mary I entered it. What a nice surprise it will be when she sees her recipe printed in the magazine!)
