  • 1 pound ground chicken (I used 97/3)*
  • 1 cup diced apple (120 grams)
  • 1/2 cup diced onion (60 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • In a medium or large bowl, add ground chicken, apple, onion, garlic powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix to combine. Form sausage mixture into 11 equal-size patties (about 2 ounces each).
  • Heat up a large skillet or cast iron over medium heat. Add oil and let it get hot, about 30 seconds. Add chicken patties in a single layer and cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook for another 2-3 minutes until browned and cooked through. Serve with your favorite breakfast items and enjoy!


*ground breasts or thighs work for this recipe. Having some fat with the meat makes them easier to work with (it makes it less sticky) when combining the ingredients and forming into patties. If your mixture is too sticky, you wet your hands with water or place it in the fridge to harden up a little.
