Pineapple Chicken Sausage Recipe: Leftover Central

Typically, I don't like to cook anything that takes more than 60 minutes, unless it's chicken since I would prefer not to poison my family at dinner time. Tonight, I wasn't in the mood to cook a whole chicken but instead, opted for chicken sausages with mango salsa, peppers and pineapples. How did I come up with that concoction? Simple, I searched my refrigerator for the perfect ingredients that would compliment my chicken sausages I had picked up from Trader Joe's. So here's how I did it:

Mango Pineapple Chicken Sausage
Slice green and yellow peppers
Add olive oil to a skillet
Add mango salsa
Add pineapple chunks and just enough juice to soak vegetables and sausages
Defrost chicken apple sausage and then slice sausage links and add them to the skillet.
Cover the skillet, lower the flame and let it simmer.
Cook time: 15 minutes

Pineapple Rice
Steam 1 cup of white rice
Add pineapple chunks
1 tablespoon of butter or margarine
1 dash of thyme
1 dash of salt and pepper
Cook on low heat for five minutes (after the rice is already steamed).

Total cooking time - less than 30 minutes.

So there you have it. Turning leftovers into a mouthwatering meal for my family. Now, the only thing that's missing is DESSERT!
