Fried Chicken Sausage in Garlic Butter Sauce

Sure, it has relatively milder flavors, but if you dislike the sheer greasiness of pork and beef brats, chicken is the perfect option for you.

Chicken sausages come in many varieties, including applewood, Andouille, and spinach and feta. So trust me, lack of flavor won’t be an issue.

As a versatile meat product, there’s a wide variety of ways you can incorporate this bangin’ banger into your meal rotation.

In this article, I’ll show you 25 ways how.

1. Healthy Chicken Sausage Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes

Pappardelle noodles are tossed in a wonderful mix of roasted tomatoes, chicken sausage crumbles, and olive oil and finished with a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

Because it’s leaner, chicken sausage is a much healthier alternative than traditional sausage.

2. Chicken Sausage and Vegetable Skillet

The noodles are also called “little ears,” well, because just look at them.

This pasta dish uses chicken sausage and broccoli for flavor and color, and a simple olive oil and garlic sauce to tie them all together.

4. Gnocchi with Chicken Sausage and Spinach

Gnocchi is, to me, the world’s best kind of pasta.
