This recipe is a leaner alternative to the typical fatty sausage, but it doesn't skimp on taste. Instead of using pork butt and shank, select a leaner cut of boneless meat, such as turkey, chicken breasts, or pork chops.

    You can cook it in a skillet over medium-high heat or bake it in the oven at 350 degrees until golden brown.

    Can this be done with chicken breast instead of pork?

  • kim

    I was told not to place raw meat in the blendtec… this recipe is clearly showing you can …so can I trust that this can be done..a little confused

  • Blendtec

    Yes, you can use chicken breast instead. The texture and taste will change slightly.
