I am a huge fan of celebrating holidays with food. At Valentine’s Day, you better believe your eggs are going to have a ketchup heart drawn on top alongside heart-shaped toast.

At Halloween, there will be jack-o-lantern shaped pizza, we celebrate Chinese New Year with homemade egg rolls, and Christmas will have Santa hat fruit kabobs.

I have some fun St. Patrick’s Day dessert recipes, but I’ve shied away from the traditional main dishes because I’m just not a huge fan of corned beef.

It’s fine and all. I will eat it if someone makes it for me. But it’s not something I willingly choose.

Cabbage, though?

Oh, I LOVE cabbage!

It’s one of my favorite side dishes! Sauteed cabbage goes well with so many dishes and it is super St. Patrick’s Day-esque!

I wanted to make it a bit more of a main dish by bringing in some chicken apple sausage (one of my favorite proteins!), so it was just begging to be made into a Chicken Sausage & Cabbage Skillet!

How to Make The Chicken Sausage Cabbage Skillet

The best part of this dish is that it is so easy to make! Chopping the cabbage is the most labor-intensive part of the entire recipe (and you could always buy bags of shredded cabbage to skip this part).

First, chop up a head of cabbage. Now, I will warn you, one head of cabbage is a LOT. I used the biggest cutting board we have and it created a cabbage mountain.

Heat up some oil in a dutch oven and brown up the chicken sausage. You can definitely use a large skillet, but I didn’t have one large enough for all of the cabbage to fit!

When the chicken sausage is browned, put it on a plate and set it aside.

Add the onion to the pan and cook it for a few minutes, then add all of the rest of the ingredients.
