  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh minced garlic
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 (12-ounce) package Aidells® Cajun Andouille Sausage, sliced thinly
  • 2 cups chicken broth

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet over medium high heat, heat olive oil. Add minced garlic, onions and sausage slices. Cook about 3 minutes, or until sausage is lightly browned and onions are tender, stirring frequently.
