Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Grate the apple with skin on and mix with onion, sage, allspice, garlic, salt, pepper, and beaten egg in a large bowl. Add in ground chicken and stir until very well combined.

  2. Shape mixture into eight ½ inch (1.2 cm) thick patties. To make cooking easier, refrigerate patties, covered in wax paper, for at least 2 hours or overnight. This helps the patties hold their shape.

  3. Pan fry patties in a non-stick skillet for about 6 minutes per side. Alternately, put patties on a sheet of foil sprayed with non-stick spray. Place on a preheated barbecue and grill for about 6 minutes per side at medium heat or until a meat thermometer inserted into the chicken pieces reads 165°F (74°C).
