Chicken Apple Sausage

This easy chicken apple sausage is super easy, doesn't have any unusual ingredients and has a delicious apple and sage taste!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Servings 12 sausages


  • 1 small onion, diced (120 grams or 2/3 cup)
  • 1 medium peeled apple, cut into 1/4" chunks (120 grams or 1 cup)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oil (I used olive)
  • 2 teaspoons rubbed sage
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (I used 1 teaspoon as I like things salty)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound (450 grams) ground chicken breast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons oil


  1. In a large non-stick pan over medium heat, cook the onion, while stirring often, until it lightly starts to brown (about 3 minutes). Add the apples to the pan and cook for another 3 minutes or until they've softened.

  2. Transfer this mix to a large bowl.
  3. Once it's cooled a bit, add the sage, salt and pepper. Mix until well combined and then mix in the chicken.

  4. Use a paper towel to wipe out any leftover onion / apple bits in the pan. Add additional oil, if needed (I used about 1 1/2 teaspoons). Turn on the heat to medium and divide the mixture into 12 balls so that you can form about 2 1/2" patties.

  5. Cook the patties about 3 minutes on each side or until cooked through (no pink) and the patties have browned.

  6. Best enjoyed still warm.
