Chicken & Apple Sausage
Chicken & Apple sausage. A healthier and tastier version of those store bought sausages, that are perfect for freezing and then microwaving (or pan-frying) in the mornings.
1 lb ground chicken
1 apple, peeled and finely diced
1 Tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, finely chopped (or use 2 Tablespoons dried thyme)
3 Tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon fresh oregano, finely chopped (or use 2 Tablespoons dried oregano)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
salt and pepper
Non-fat Pam to cook
Preheat oven to 425F.
Spray Pam in skillet and cook (on a medium-high heat) the apples, thyme, parsley, and oregano until the apples soften (7-8 minutes).
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
Mix the chicken meat with everything in the skillet, as well as the garlic powder, salt and pepper
Form 12 thin patties (1/2 inch thick) from the meat and place on a baking tray lined with foil
Bake for 20 minutes. Check with a meat thermometer that the internal temperature of a patty near the middle of the tray is 170F.
Cool and store in fridge or freezer (reheat easily in the mornings in the skillet or in the microwave).
If you want the sausages to be browned, then just pan-fry for a few minutes in coconut oil. You can also pan-fry the raw sausages instead of putting them into the oven.
