A delicious alternative to the classic fat-filled pork breakfast sausage: Chicken Breakfast Sausage, made with 99% lean ground chicken.
Who doesn't love breakfast meats?! Bacon, country ham, sausage... yasssssssss. If I could eat them all every day without dying early, I totally would. Instead of doing without, I came up with a much better solution:
Chicken Breakfast Sausage.
My chicken breakfast sausage recipe has all the herbs and spices from classic pork sausage, but mixed with the super lean ( 99% ) ground chicken instead of greasy pork. Nothing else.
I'll admit, I was worried. I thought they might turn out like little sausage-flavored hockey pucks. I was SO thrilled when I took a bite into one of these little chicken breakfast sausage patties hot off the pan and discovered that they were juicy, just like old-fashioned sausage!
I was so thrilled with the flavor of these little guys and with how absolutely simple they were to make, that I decided to make a video showing you exactly how easy they are!
I mean, or you can just follow the recipe below. Whatever makes you feel good!
Chicken Breakfast Sausage
- 1 lb 99% lean ground chicken
- 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon rubbed sage
- ⅛ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/16 teaspoon marjoram
- 1/16 teaspoon cloves
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
- Stir all ingredients together until combined.
- Set a medium pan over medium heat, and spray it with cooking oil.
- Scoop out sausage directly onto the hot pan -- you may need to work in batches to use all of the sausage mixture. Flatten each scoop. Cook for 4 minutes. Flip. Cook four more minutes.
Why not add poultry seasoning als
You definitely could!

Great site, stick with it!
This was not good. I followed the recipe exactly and the flavors are off.
In what way were the flavors off? Too much or too little of something? I have made this recipe many time and loved it - and have received quite a few emails from readers who also loved it, but of course I am always looking to improve!

Delicious! Our one pattie on an English muffin with an egg. I can't have dairy. I make it with French toast and pancakes. My husband loves it! So much better than pork sausage and better for you. I substituted 100% maple syrup for brown sugar and added a little fennel seed. Thanks 😋.
