  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 cup finely diced peeled apple
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage
  • 1/2 tsp fennel
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 23 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil


  1. Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl, except for the oil, and mix well using your hands so it is combined well
  2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. While the skillet is heating, form the chicken sausage mixture into patties (6-8 patties, depending on how thick you want them)
  3. Once hot, add the sausages into the skillet. Cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly. Sausage is ready to be flipped when it comes up easily from the skillet, do not try to flip them if sausage patty is still sticking to the pan.


  • You can also use this recipe as a ground chicken sausage recipe by browning the sausage in a skillet to crumble instead of forming into patties
  • Optional: add 1 tbsp honey if not doing Whole30 and prefer a sweeter sausage
  • Freezer Instructions: Set the cooked patties on a sheet pan in rows so they are not touching, and then let them cool. Once they’re cooled, place the sheet pan into the freezer for about 30 minutes to 1 hour, until the patties are solid. Once they’re solid, you can wrap them in freezer paper, place in baggies in individual portions or put them altogether to pull out of the freezer at a later date. They are good in the freezer, cooked, for up to 3 months.
