Chicken and Apple Patties
Rather than eat sausages full of nitrates, try this easy recipe that is flavorful and good for you, too.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 8
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup finely chopped, peeled apple
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1½ pounds ground chicken
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
In large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until tender, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add apple, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Let cool for 20 minutes.
Place in large bowl and add chicken, salt, pepper, and thyme. Work with your hands until combined.
Form mixture into 16 patties. You can freeze the patties at this point, or cook them in more olive oil, turning once, until thoroughly cooked, about 3–4 minutes per side. To cook frozen patties, let thaw in refrigerator overnight, then proceed as directed.
