Some days you just can’t look at another chicken breast. That’s when you should make these chicken-apple sausage patties, which create a juicier, tastier chicken dish without the fat (or preservatives) of conventional sausages.

Chicken-Apple Sausage Patties Servings: 4
You'll need
  • 1 large tart apple, peeled and diced
  • 2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 lb ground chicken

FIT FACT: An October 2014 study found that eating tart apples, such as Granny Smith, helps improve digestion and fight obesity.

1. Combine the apple, poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Crumble the chicken over the mixture and mix the ingredients together. Shape into four 6-inch patties.
2. Place a large pan over medium heat and coat with cooking spray. Place patties in pan and cook 5–6 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.
