  • 2

    teaspoon(s) canola oil

  • 1

    small onion, diced

  • 1

    medium sweet apple, such as Gala or Honeycrisp, peeled and diced

  • 1

    pound(s) ground chicken

  • 1

    tablespoon(s) finely chopped fresh sage

  • 1

    tablespoon(s) packed light brown sugar

  • ½

    teaspoon(s) fennel seed, chopped

  • ¾

    teaspoon(s) salt

  • ¼

    teaspoon(s) freshly ground pepper


Directions Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add apples and cook, stirring, 2 more minutes. Transfer to a large bowl and cool for 5 minutes. Wipe out the pan. Add chicken, sage, sugar, fennel, salt, and pepper to the bowl with the apples and onions. Gently mix to combine. Generously coat the pan with cooking spray and heat over medium. Using a 1/3-cup measure, scoop 4 portions of the sausage mixture into pan, flattening each into a 3-inch patty. Cook until the patties are browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning. Coat the pan with cooking spray again and repeat with remaining sausage mixture. Carb Servings: 1 medium fat meat. Carbohydrate Servings: 0. More from
