Reviews for Chicken Sausage Patties
"I've made this three times so far. A lighter, fresher tasting, healtier version of pork sausage. I make it using a whole lb. of ground chicken and quadruple all of the other ingredients. I make the patties, freeze them, and defrost and cook only what I need for a meal."
