Tips for Making This Recipe
Although just about any type of mild chicken sausage will work for this recipe, we recommend using something with a sweet-savory flavor profile like Aidell's Chicken and Apple Sausage or al fresco Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage. Both brands are all-natural and readily available in many supermarkets.
