Chicken-Apple Sausage Patties

Chicken-Apple Sausage Patties
Servings: 6 Yield: 12 patties Prep 15 mins Cook 200°F 22 mins


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 Golden Delicious or Granny Smith apple, cored, peeled and diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried sage

Make It

1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F for keeping the finished patties warm.

2. In large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium heat. Add the apple, onion and pepper flakes; saute, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Remove skillet from heat.

3. Transfer apple-onion mixture to food processor; do not wipe out skillet. Add chicken chunks, black pepper, garlic powder, sage and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt to food processor. Pulse until all the ingredients are well combined and the chicken is ground but not too broken up, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a clean bowl.

4. Wet hands with cold water. Using scant 1/4 cup for each patty, form sausage mixture into twelve patties, 2-1/2 inches in diameter. Place on waxed paper.

5. In the same large skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat. Add 6 patties to the skillet; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F on instant-read thermometer. Remove patties to platter; keep warm in 200 degrees F oven (temperature of patties will increase to 165 degrees F as they stand).

6. Repeat with 6 remaining patties. Serve patties warm.
