To Arch1, not sure where you live, but raw chicken sausage abounds from Walmart to Sprouts to Natural Grocers and every store from Arkansas to Oregon!! Get out of the packages meat section and look where the real meat is. To UncleBen1630, yes you definitely could use raw chicken sausages. Cook them with their "skin" still on, when they're done cut it off and slice into 1" pieces and follow the recipe as directed. I used chicken bone broth, one leek in place of the onion, including the more tender parts of the green, added carrots sliced into circles, and chopped Kale, plus the rest ther recipe calls for. Spice wise I used Smoked Paprika, fresh ground black pepper, Himalayan pink sea salt, and at the very end I added two tsp of fresh chopped Thyme. I served this with Cheddar Garlic Butter biscuits that are light, fluffy and delicious!

Fabulous! My husband loved it. I couldn't find cooked Italian Chicken sausages so I used Hillshire farms smoked chicken sausages. I also forgot to purchase vegetarian broth so I used chicken broth! My husband loved it! He wants it again. So I say it is terrific and easy to make.

I’ve made this recipe for years, I just use what ever is left in the vegetable drawer, and what ever sausage I have bought on sale at the store, celery, grated carrots, sweet peppers, potatoes, green beans, peas you name it it can go in the pot!! My famiily loves it and they never get bored as it’s always a little different!

I love a meal that can be made in one pot/pan. I especially liked the vegetables that were added.. This is a great dish for practice/game night. Easy to make and comes together easily. I used Italian sausage, so I did cook the sausage a little bit longer.

We enjoyed this recipe! I just added slices of red and orange sweet pepper for a little more color.

To answer UncleBen1630, all of the chicken sausage I have ever seen an used is fully cooked. If you wanted to use a sausage that is not already cooked, it would more than likely be of the pork variety. Hope this helps.

More like a question - since the sausage is 1" pieces, then sauteed, then cooked for 15 to 20 minutes - couldn't i start off with raw sausage?

We really enjoyed this. It reminded of good o' country cooking. Shared with a few folks who are watching their diet. The chicken sausage cuts a lot of fat so they can have comfort food also.

Due to our family size I had to double this recipe. This is one of those recipes that makes me happy that I have a mandolin as it makes quick work of slicing the potatoes and they are consistent in size for even cooking. I was tempted to not put in as much spinach because I have a couple of kids that don't particularly enjoy wilted spinach in their food but I went ahead and did and there were no complaints. That says something about the dish. Great weeknight meal!
