Chicken Apple Sausage Recipe

Chicken Apple Sausage Recipe

Senior Culinary Nutritionist Natalia Hancock shares her healthy and delicious recipe for Chicken Apple Sausage.

You might have noticed that poultry (chicken, turkey and even duck) sausages have been flooding the supermarkets. Many of us perceive sausage made out of poultry to be much healthier than sausage made from the traditional pork or beef, but many are still high in sodium, unhealthy preservatives such as nitrates, and fat. Poultry sausages can also be quite expensive. Here is a simple, inexpensive recipe for chicken apple sausage that is free of preservatives, low in fat and sodium. Super-quick and delicious, this recipe is perfect for a snowy Saturday morning!

Makes 16 2 oz servings


2 lbs lean ground chicken or turkey
½ cup grated apple
2 tbsp ground oats
2 tbsp apple cider
2 tbsp chopped chives
2 tbsp sage
1 large egg, beaten (for binding; optional)
1½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp ground nutmeg

Directions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the ground chicken with the apple, oats, cider, vinegar, chives, egg, salt and spices.

Form the mixture into 8 2 oz patties, about a ½" thick.

Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Over a medium-low heat, cook each patty in an oven-safe skillet for 2 minutes then flip.

Place the skillet in the oven for 10 minutes. Sausage should be 165 degrees and cooked through.
