This recipe for Maple Apple Breakfast Sausage is the perfect addition to your weekend breakfast or brunch! Made with ground chicken, it’s simple, lean and flavorful!


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup finely diced apple
  • 23 Tbsp maple syrup (depending on desired level of sweetness)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until just combined.
  2. Form and flatten into 12-14 patties.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
  4. Place 6 patties in skillet and cook, flipping occasionally until temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Repeat with remaining patties.


You could add more thyme if you like the flavor, or sub sage if desired. You could also add some cayenne pepper for a little kick!
You could use grated apple instead of diced, if desired.
I like these with 3 Tbsp maple syrup but 2 is better if you want just a hint of sweetness.
