Crockpot Chicken Sausage Harvest

Michelle Koletar/Mertz


Doesn't this just look like fall? I made this 2day in the crockpot, & it came out great. Love one-pot meals! Flavorful without being heavy. I left the peels on the potatoes & apples. Nice one for working parents or great for football game days! Smells soooooooooo good! Adjust cooking time according to your crockpot & how large you have the veggies chopped. You will have some cinnamon flavor in this, so if you don't like that, omit the cinn stick & add a dash of nutmeg to the sauce instead. Also, I think this would be even better with smoked pork sausage links!

chicken sausage links (i used spinach & feta flavor)
large potatoes (any kind), cut in large chunks
onion, cut in chunks
1 lb
fresh green beans
red pepper, cut in large chunks
baby carrots (or 3 whole carrots cut in chunks)
apples, cut in large chunks (i used granny smith)
cinnamon stick (optional)
1 c
beer (any kind, i used lite)
2 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1-2 tsp
minced garlic (or to taste)
2 tsp
montreal chicken seasoning
1 Tbsp
chicken stock (i like knorr's homestyle stock)
1 tsp
black pepper


1Begin to layer the ingredients in your crock pot. I did potatoes first, half the onions, apples, red pepper, carrots, rest of onions, green beans and sausage on top. Put cinnamon stick on top for the essence (optional).
2Whisk the beer with mustard, montreal chicken seasoning, garlic, chicken stock, and black pepper. Pour over top. I also threw some caraway seeds over top, just because I had them.
3I cooked for about 4-5 hours on high. Temp time will need to be adjusted according to your crockpot. I didn't want the broth to be thick; if you do, you could add some cornstarch or flour, I'm sure.
