Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large red bell pepper – cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large orange bell pepper – cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion – peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini – cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • pinch of black pepper
  • 1 package chicken sausage (12 oz) – I used a robust Italian flavor

Instructions

  1. Chop the veggies and add them to a large bowl.  Drizzle them with olive oil and toss to coat them all.  In a smaller bowl, mix the spices together with the salt and pepper and add the spice blend to the veggies.  Toss them in the spices to get them all nice and coated.
  2. Slice the sausage into 3/4 inch rounds and add it to the bowl with the veggies and toss everything together.
  3. Preheat the air fryer, if needed to 390 degrees F and spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray.  Add the veggies and sausage to the air fryer basket in an even layer and close and cook them for 10 minutes, flipping them in the basket halfway through the cooking time.  You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  4. Once the chicken sausage and veggies are done cooking, remove them from the air fryer and serve as is or with cooked cauliflower rice or brown rice. 

Notes

  • Buy good quality chicken sausage.  You can also use kielbasa’s. 
  • Chop the veggies into even sizes (1-inch pieces) so they cook evenly. 
  • Toss everything in the air fryer basket at least once during the cooking time to ensure it all gets nice and golden and crispy. 
  • You can store this chicken sausage and veggies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Easily reheat in the air fryer at 350 degrees F for a few minutes.
