Breakfast Chicken Sausage Recipe

Sausage patties are one of my favorite things to look forward to in the morning when we have them. Not only are they a filling and super healthy way to start the day, but I know my kid will love them too! These sausage patties are great for making ahead and can be enjoyed as a quick breakfast, as part of a brunch spread, or a busy weeknight meal. For more AIP-compliant meals check out my AIP 7-Day Meal Plan.

Whatever I have for breakfast it is always high in protein and has low (to no) sugar. I have discovered that when I “Start Savory” I get what I need to get me up well and keep me up without taking a seat on the sugar rollercoaster halfway to lunch. Of course, once in a while, I enjoy having something sweet for breakfast and that’s ok. We’re talking about making healthy habits, not being superheroes.

 

Just getting started on AIP (or need a refresh)? Here's an easy 1-week meal plan using some of my most popular AIP recipes to make it stress-free and delicious.

 

This recipe is completely egg-free, for when you want to give them a break (pun intended), or if you have already eliminated them from your diet. Some more of my favorite egg-free breakfasts are these Pork Sausage Patties and my Grain-Free Porridge.

tip!
Starting savory in the morning with these breakfast sausages will help you achieve optimized energy levels, better digestion, and more balanced blood sugar levels. Serve with greens like sautéed garlic kale for a nutrient-packed start to your day!

Is breakfast sausage AIP?

Breakfast sausage that is store-bought will more than likely not be AIP as they will contain preservatives and additives. However, not only is this breakfast sausage AIP, but it’s also Paleo, Gluten-Free, and Low Carb too! My AIP 7-Day Meal Plan has more ideas and inspiration for AIP-compliant breakfasts and other meals you will love.

How do you cook maple chicken sausage?

I usually fry them in my skillet, but you can also bake these sausage patties in the oven.

How can I store breakfast sausage?

  • To Store: Cool completely and put in an airtight container before storing in the fridge for up to four days.
  • To Freeze: Store for up to one month in an airtight, freezer-safe container, plastic bag, or individually wrapped in plastic wrap.
  • To Reheat: Thaw frozen patties in the fridge overnight, then let them come to room temperature on the counter (if time permits). Next, reheat patties in an iron (or nonstick) skillet over medium-high heat until thoroughly warmed through, or place in the microwave for 2-3 minutes at 30-second intervals.

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 25 mins
Yield: 1

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs ground pasture-raised chicken
  • 2 Tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp rubbed sage
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, maple syrup, and all seasonings. Mix well until everything is combined.
  • Form into 2 oz. patties using a tablespoon and set aside.
  • Heat a large cast-iron (or nonstick) skillet over medium heat. Add 1 Tbsp of oil the skillet.
  • Once the oil is shimmering and covering the skillet, place the sausage patties in the pan. Cook until browned on both sides and cooked all the way through (watch it closely so the syrup doesn’t burn). Cook in batches until done, adding the rest of the oil as needed. Serve and enjoy!

  • To Store: Cool completely and put in an airtight container before storing in the fridge for up to four days.
