Zucchini Chicken Sausage Stir Fry

Handling raw meat can be daunting for any new cook, particularly for those who are squirmish with touching or looking at any bloody raw animal flesh. Marinating and cooking raw meat also means longer preparation and cooking time.  Fortunately, there is always a quick and delicious recipe that doesn't trigger the raw meat trauma. This dish is easy and quick to cook.  It tastes good and doesn't require precise and fussy measurement or timing.  Inexperienced cooks can just chop up something and toss something, add a pinch of this or a drizzle of that; and it would still taste good because the store bought sausage is already pre-cooked.
