Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce, (see Shopping Tip)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cups chopped collard greens, (about 10 ounces), tough stems removed
  • 9 ounces cooked chicken sausage links, (about 3 links), halved lengthwise and sliced

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk barbecue sauce, water, tomato paste, molasses, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and collard greens and cook, stirring occasionally, until the collards are wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Add sausage and cook, stirring, until beginning to brown, about 3 minutes more.
