Chicken Sausage with Potatoes and Sauerkraut


The flavor of the Chicken Sausage with Potatoes and Sauerkraut  dish will vary depending on what type of chicken sausage you choose. We like the taste of roasted garlic sausage or sweet apple sausage in this recipe.  Although any type of sauerkraut can be used, we prefer the crisp texture of refrigerated kraut over canned.  Ted is not as much a fan of sauerkraut as I am, but he could not stop telling me how much he loved this recipe.  I think it is a combination of the kraut being well rinsed and the bay leaf and caraway seeds cooked in white wine kept it tasty and not tart.   Delicious fall evening meal!
