I love making one pot meals as they are fairly quick to make and give leftovers for a couple of days. This great meal can be made in about 1 hour and the leftovers taste great the next day too.

This meal is rich in:

  • Healthy fats from coconut oil
  • Protein, vitamins B3 and B6, selenium, zinc, and phosphorus from chicken wings
  • Manganese and vitamin B6 from garlic, in addition to garlic’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiviral roles
  • Many minerals (manganese, copper, potassium, and phosphorus), vitamins (biotin, B1, C, B6, and folate), and fiber from onion
  • Vitamins A, B6, C, K, fiber, biotin, and potassium from carrots
  • Vitamin B12, C, K, folate, manganese, and fiber from green beans
  • Vitamin A, B3, B6, C, E, K, biotin, folate, copper, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, and fiber from tomatoes
  • Trace minerals from sea salt

This is an easy and healthy dinner for your whole family, including that little picky eater of yours. How do I know? No picky eater ever said no to this delicious meal.

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
Chicken Sausages with Green Beans and Carrots
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 12 small chicken sausages, cut in bite-sized pieces (*see note)
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 onion, chopped small
  • 2 big carrots, chopped small (approximately 2 cups)
  • 500 g fresh or frozen green beans, cut in bite-sized pieces (**see note)
  • 1 can (796 ml) diced tomatoes
  • Sea salt, to taste
  1. Cook sausages on low heat in coconut oil for 15 minutes stirring occasionally.
  2. Add garlic and onion and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Add carrots, green beans, and diced tomatoes.
  4. Simmer over low heat until vegetables are tender. Add sea salt if necessary.
  5. This meal works great on its own, or served with polenta or garlic bread.
  6. It keeps well in the fridge for up to 3 days.
*Any type of sausages works.
** Sometimes I don’t cut the green beans, like I did when I took the above photo. But then I end up cutting them in small pieces anyway before I serve this meal to my kids.
