  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts
  • 3 cloves garlic fresh and minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon italian seasoning
  • 1 1/4- 1/2 teaspoons sea salt (or more, to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seed
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • ut chicken breasts into smaller pieces (a large breast into 3 pieces is good). Add minced garlic, olive oil, 1¼ teaspoons of sea salt, and all the other seasonings.
  • Process until the chicken is minced and all the spices are incorporated.
  • Cook a tablespoon of sausage mixture in a frying pan, and add more sea salt or red pepper flakes, if desired.
  • Prepare fresh, or freeze extra.


Since the sausage is very lean, it's best cooked with 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil to help with browning.
