Unlikely food pairings are oftentimes surprisingly tasty. Chili powder on mango anyone? How about olives with orange rind? These flavor combinations, while seemingly nonsensical, are a treat to your palette and a testament to the endless ways in which you can be creative in the kitchen.
Since culinary innovation knows no bounds, why not take this to the grill? al fresco’s new Sweet & Smoky BBQ Chicken Sausage does just that, providing you with an unlikely new flavor that will perk up your meal. Savory with a hint of smoky flavor, you may just get carried away thinking about all the delicious dishes you can pair with your new summer staple.
I decided to take the new al fresco’s new Sweet & Smoky BBQ Chicken Sausage and put it to the test. I grilled up the sausage with the following to make a great new take on an old favorite stew and came up with a great tasting dish.
- 1 Package al fresco’s new Sweet & Smoky BBQ Chicken Sausage (Grilled and sliced)
- 1 Package al fresco Turkey Bacon
- 1 Large Zucchini (Cubed)
- 4 carrots, peeled, cut into 1-inch slices
- 2 stalks celery, cut into 1-inch slices
- 3 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut in eighths
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup red wine
- 3 cups beef broth
- 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 bay leaf
- 1/2 tsp dried thyme
How does this sound to you. I can tell you that it gave the stew a great flavor andit ended up being a great hit in the family too!
One of the things I really liked about this product was that not only do you get great tasting meat, but it is made with lean, skinless chicken meat, which means that it contains 70% less fat and 30% less sodium than average pork sausage which means it’s better for you. Better yet, all of al fresco’s chicken sausage flavors are gluten-free and are packaged fully cooked – meaning you can enjoy your delicious grilled sausage in minutes – talk about a time saver!
