Cider-Glazed Chicken Sausages



If you are looking for something easy to make for dinner with an intense, good flavor...this might be for you. I think we all forget about the awesome chicken sausages that are now available in the stores. There are so many flavors to choose from. 

I love chicken sausage with breakfast too, fried gently and served with eggs and toast. It's such a nice low-calorie and protein filled way to start the day. We love it over here.

Have you ever reduced apple cider?  The flavor is incomparable.  Do not substitute apple juice, it's just not the same taste. The sausages I used were spinach and feta flavored, I think chicken and apple sausages would also be perfect.

I served this with a side of garlic mashed potatoes and it was wonderful.  The perfect easy meal for this busy Mom!  Enjoy.


In a large skillet or shallow heavy pot, heat oil over medium-high.  Add onion and sausages and cook until sausages are deep golden brown, 6 minutes, turning sausages and stirring onion halfway through.


Add sage and cider and season with salt and pepper.  Bring to a rapid simmer.


Cook until cider is syrupy and coats the back of a spoon, about 30 minutes.

    Looks delicious. I love sausage, especially polish style. The cider vinegar glaze is great with kiolbassa sausage. Tried it and loved it, ate it all up at one sitting!.

  8. Thanks for this recipe. I just had cider glazed pulled pork on top of an english muffin and topped with a poached egg. Now I know how to make that glaze so I can recreate it at home. These sausages look fabulous.

    I’ve made this recipe twice since you posted it, using bratwurst. I added a few smashed garlic cloves to the onions, as well as some bay leaves alongside the sage.

    The second time, I added a few allspice berries to the cider, which also turned out great.

    This is definitely a recipe that invites improvisation.

    I made this twice last week and loved it! I served it over brown rice cooked in apple cider instead of water and it was perfect. That for the great recipe!

    What is a good brand of Chicken sausages? We live in a small town with not much selection. If i know a brand I can have someone pick some up when they go to the city.

  15. When you say ‘Chicken Sausage’. Any particular flavor profile on the sausage? I’m thinking I may make my own. Thanks! :)
