Chipotle Lime Chicken Sausage

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Made a couple kinds of chicken sausage this weekend. This one has a southwestern flavor and came out great.

The basic recipe
3 lbs boneless/skinless chicken thighs
3 TBSP oats
2 large chipotles in adobo sauce, diced up
zest of 3 limes
juice of 3 limes
2 tsp Southwest seasoning blend
1 palm fresh minced cilantro
1 tsp kosher salt

Cut the meat into chunks, partially frozen. Then blended in the seasonings.

All ground up

Stuffed and twisted links

Grilled over RO lump, there are also some Citrus/Sage sausages on the plate that I will post in another thread.

Plated the Chipotle Lime sausage with some Lime Cilantro rice, some cheesy corn casserole and a bean salad.

Thanks for checking out this chicken sausage.

You caught my attention right away with the chipotle.
They look great, I'm sure it tasted even better!

Thanks everyone. This recipe is a keeper for sure. But next time I will probably add a couple more chipotles to kick up the heat a little.

Hey wutang i need help with a few ingrediants, what is adobo sauce, hell i have never bought a chipotole lol, southwest seasoning? and what is zest of a lime? sorry no chef here, only chef boyardee.

just had a thought, do you not put in fennal or the stuff that makes sausage taste like sausage? seems like it would just taste like chicken? just wondering im sure its good either way.

Both of your chicken threads just look great. I see some chicken sausage in my future this week-end. Thanks for the inspiration.

I used canned chipotles, they are already in the adobo sauce. They were in the mexican food isle of the grocery store. I attached a pic. I used a store bought southwest seasoning blend (also attached a pic), I am sure there you can find a similar one. Zest is the outer green part of the peel of the lime. It has a strong lime flavor. I have a zester to remove it but I have used a fork to just scrape it off before too.

I am not a sausage expert, but to me fennel is only for some sausages-specifically italian sausage. I wouldn't say that these "tasted like chicken." The chipotle & other flavors came through nicely. But I am sure the flavor would be a little different if you used pork.

Good deal thanks again!! ohh would a cheese grater be good for getting the zest? the fine blade?
post #16 of 26
I like the idea that there is no extra fat added for health sake. Did that hinder the cooking at all?

I think a fine cheese grater would work. Just be careful not to go over the same spot too many times. You want the green of the lime peel, but not much of the white part underneath it.

I thought they cooked up just fine. The oats help with texture. I would definitely make them the same way again.

Can't wait to grill these over some lump.

Thanks for sharing the recipe! I will be making more of these soon.
