Homemade Paleo Chicken Sausage

  • Author: Bri McKoy
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 8 1x


  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 lbs ground chicken or turkey
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 apple, diced (we use green apples)
  • Juice of one lemon (or try 2 TBS maple syrup to mix it up)


  1. In a large bowl add the ground chicken along with thyme through lemon juice. Mix to combine
  2. Form small patties from the mixture. I usually have a golfball size of meat to make one patty. You should come out with about 8-10 12 patties (1/2 inch thick).
  3. Heat a sauté pan and add 1 TBS coconut oil. Over medium high heat add the patties. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side. Continue until you have sautéed all the chicken patties.
  4. Allow to cool and store the refrigerator for the week. Or you can freeze and thaw overnight in the refrigerator when you are ready to use them.
