    The other kind of chicken sausage I made this weekend was a Citrus/Sage creation. Basically I took seasoning ingredients that I use in my poultry brine and twisted them into amounts that seemed appropriate for a sausage recipe. I think it came out great and is definitely something I will make again.

    The recipe
    3 lbs boneless/skinless chicken thighs
    3 TBSP oats
    1 TBSP kosher salt
    1 1/2 tsp CBP
    1 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
    1 1/2 tsp onion powder
    zest of 3 mandarin oranges
    juice of 3 mandarin oranges
    1 tsp ground Sage
    1/2 tsp coriander
    1/2 tsp thyme

    Blended the chunks of chicken with the seasoning

    Ground up then folded in the juice

    Stuffed and linked

    Grilled over RO lump. There are also some chipotle lime sausages on the plate

    This recipe came out great. My wife said the orange flavor seemed slightly strong when I fried up a test pattie after stuffing, I thought it was fine. But after a night in the fridge before cooking it mellowed some and was great the next day. I would definitely make this again. It will be a great summer time sausage, light citrus flavor and a great texture

    Not a big fan of citrus, but those do look good.

    I dont see people grinding up chicken very often. That's cool

    There is some fat, just not near as much as pork. The addition of the oats help with the consistency/texture. I thought they came out great. Not dry at all.
