Homemade Chicken Sausage

Use  a mix of equal quantities of  chicken breast and thigh meat plus the bits of fat  from the bird. Using white meat alone gives a dry sausage .

Add the ground chicken to a bowl and add the sauteed mix , and ground spice mix.
Add in soy sauce and salt to taste. Mix well.

Keep this mix in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Meanwhile prepare some aluminum foil . cut into square shapes and set aside.
Remove the meat mixture from the fridge . form into logs about the thickness of 3/4 inch .
Place it on the edge of an aluminum sheet and roll into a tight sausage.squeeze and seal one end first .
applying a bit of pressure with your hands push the meat mixture into a tight log and squeeze the other end forming a sausage roll.

Steam these rolls for 10 minutes in a covered pan , placing the sausage on a perforated tray so that it does not touch the water.

Allow the rolls to cool .

The rolls can be refrigerated or frozen in the aluminum foil as such .
These can be used in soups, pastas, sausage rolls , sandwiches etc.
Saute in a tsp of oil and use in a hotdog roll .


  1. Hi, at what stage do we add vinegar and oregano?

    1. Hello there , you should add it to the minced meat and mix it before you steam it . Sorry , it wasn't mentioned clearly .
