Smoked Apple Chardonnay Chicken Sausage
2T unsalted butter
6 Apple Chardonnay Chicken Sausage (Now available at Giant – Butcher Counter) or at Trader Joe’s – if you can find Bilinski’s sausages get them.
1 large red onion (thinly sliced)
2 small green apples (cored and sliced)
1/4c sweet wine (Riesling, or apple cider )
1c heavy cream
1lb fresh zucchini noodles
Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the sausages whole and brown for 5 minutes on each side. Remove them and add the remaining butter and the onion to the pan. Sauté over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, or until the onion is soft. Add the apples and sauté for 2-3 minutes longer. They should be cooked but still firm.
Pour in the wine or cider and reduce over high heat for 3 or 4 minutes, until the sauce is syrupy.
Add the cream, reduce by half and return the sausage to the pan. Cook covered for 1 minute more.
Cook the zucchini noodles in a large pot of well-salted boiling water until al dente. Mound the noodles on a platter, add the sauce and serve.
Serving with garden salad.
