One Skillet Chicken Sausage & Potato Stir-Fry

I shared this one-skillet recipe on my Instagram account awhile back and it got such a great response that I wanted to make sure it was on the blog for quick access. I know most of us are always on the go and need to have recipes like this that they can whip up quickly without sacrificing quality and health standards. Well here’s another one to add to your list!

Think of this as your paleo fast food, minus the drive through and grease-stained napkins littering your car.


One Skillet Chicken Sausage and Potato Stir-Fry

  • Servings: 2*
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Print


  • 1 tbsp. organic coconut oil
  • 1 large sweet potato, chopped (see note)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder, or a few cloves of fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • 2 garlic-herb chicken sausages (I used the Trader Joe’s variety)
  • 1 cup shredded kale
  • 1/2 cup crimini mushrooms
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • handful of chopped green onions, for garnish

*Notes: I used Japanese sweet potatoes – the purple variety with the white, creamy flesh. If you don’t have these readily available, you can sub in a sweet potato or white potato.

Other Tools Needed:

  • Measuring cups/spoons
  • Cutting board
  • Chef’s knife
  • Frying pan


Over low heat, warm the coconut oil in the skillet until it’s warm. Add the chopped sweet potatoes to the skillet and cook covered, over medium heat until softened. Add the onions and sauté with the potatoes until translucent. Season the skillet with all the goodies – salt, pepper, garlic, chili powder, and cayenne – and give it a good stir. Once all the spices are mixed in, add the chicken sausage and let them cook for another two minutes or so before adding the remaining ingredients (reserve the green onions). When the kale and mushrooms have cooked down – which should only take a few more minutes at most – you can turn off the heat and serve with the green onions sprinkled on top. Easy peasy!
