Chicken Sausage: Like muscle-bound Little Smokies

23 Jul

Trader Joe’s has done it again. They took a product that I normally wouldn’t be interested in (sausage) and turned it into a meal I crave.

Made with apple and Chardonnay, flavored with smokey goodness and a mild taste, it’s almost criminally delicious. Although I don’t usually like sausage (too spicy, too red meaty, too sausage-y), this sweet chicken version is like a muscle-bound “Little Smokey”  or its huge, healthier cousin that was allowed to grow to sandwich size. That smokey. That mild. That good.

Another factor of this meal has to do with the 100+ temps we’re dealing with in the Midwest. When I come home from work, I don’t want a complicated meal that takes a while to prepare. And I certainly don’t want to turn on the stove or, heaven help us, the oven. These sausages are precooked, so I put one in the microwave and the link is ready to devour in 1 minute.

Thank you, TJ’s.
