Chicken & Turkey Sausage w/sauteed veggies (w/optional brown rice)


A 21 day fix approved/clean (or close enough) review and recipe. (Yield 5-6 servings)

This is my favorite recipe for bulk lunches. Why? Because you can add different sauces at the bottom of the jar to make it taste very different. I like to eat this like a mixed up casserole, but you could pack it in containers with separators, too. I also like to mix the cauliflower rice with rice for a little more carb/bulk midday, but it would taste the same without it if you are saving yellows (carbs) for dinner/wine. It freezes well and I just never get sick of it.

If you are “fixing” - Each serving is 1.5 Red (protein) , 1.5 Green (veggies), .5 (optional) Yellow (carb)

  • 5 frozen chicken breasts
  • 1 turkey kielbasa sausage
  • 2 green peppers
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower
  • 1 bag Trader Joe’s Microwave Brown Rice (optional)
  • Various sauces - this is where my “fix approved is close enough” (A1, teriyaki, BBQ, Buffalo, etc)
  • 5 wide mouth pint mason jars (or other 2 cup containers)

  1. Bake chicken breasts per package instructions until fully cooked (or cook in crockpot)
  2. Microwave the rice per instructions
  3. Drizzle ½ of the olive oil in large saute pan and saute the cauliflower rice until warm
  4. (optional) Add the rice and mix together
  5. Remove rice mixture from pan
  6. Drizzle remaining olive oil in the pan and add chopped onion & peppers and saute until tender.
  7. Slice turkey kielbasa and add to the pan along with the cooked, diced chicken.
  8. Cover and let flavors simmer together.
  9. Layer your jars in this order: 1-2 Tbsp sauce of choice, 1 ¾ cups of the meat/veggie mixture (or 1 green + 1 red container), ¼ cup packed of the rice veggie mixture. 
  10. Screw on the top of the jars and freeze the leftovers.
