Start by taking the bone out of the thigh.

While you are taking out the bone go ahead & take out the large vein. No need putting that in your sausage.

Now that the bone & vein are out you can cut the thigh into fourths.

*

And then into eights.

*
Repeat the process for all five chicken thighs. Discard the thigh bones.

This batch of chicken sausage was seasoned with roasted red bell peppers & basil.

To make sure that there wasn’t any pork in these sausages they were stuffed into casing made of beef collagen.

*

There are multiple types và sizes of collagen casings available. You will want to use the 32 mm Fresh style from LEM.

(The liên kết takes you to lớn the 21 mm kích cỡ casing. Select 32 milimet from the drop down menu.)

*

Collagen casings make sausages that are very straight with no bends. They are also impossible lớn twist into links.

Use some twine khổng lồ tie a knot at the end of the casing.

*

After you stuff the casing to lớn the desired sausage length use another piece of twine & tie it off.

I like to showroom a new piece of twine before every sausage so I can cut them apart for individual storage.

They came out looking pretty nice!

Grill these chicken sausages with indirect heat (or bake in a 300F oven) & turn often.

Cook the sausages until an internal temperature of 165F is reached.

These chicken sausages brown up wonderfully but will pop if left unattended (just like that little sausage hanging out in the back of the picture).
