Italian Chicken & Basil Sausage

100% Full Flavored Chicken Sausage
Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time1 hr 30 mins
Total Time25 mins



  • Debone the chicken and remove the skin. Cut chicken and skin into small pieces. Place in the freezer for an hour or until the temp reaches 32f – 34F. For this sausage I generally semi freeze the meat and skin.
  • Chop the aged cheese into small pieces and finely chop the basil. Finally prepare all of seasonings and set to the side.
  • Grind your very chilled meat/fat along with the minced garlic and sundried tomatoes on a medium plate (6mm)
  • Mix the meat with all of the rest of the ingredients until it becomes very tacky. If you grab a small handful it will stick to your hand if you hold your hand upside down.
  • Stuff into your sausage casings, link, and prick out any air pockets. Refrigerate overnight.
  • You can cook these sausages any way you want. If you cook these on a stovetop or grill you should cook them till you reach an internal temp of 160f (71c)
    I like to cook them sous vide at 150f (65.5c) for 90 minutes then finish them on a grill or air fryer (optional)
