Orange Ginger Chicken Sausage with Sweet Peppers

Orange Ginger Chicken Sausage with Sweet Peppers

My favorite chicken sausage to use is Al Fresco, because it is minimally processed and no preservatives or nitrates added. My favorite flavor is Mango Adobe Chicken Sausage. With our featured recipe though, we are using a chicken sausage from the Whole Foods Market. It is a Orange Ginger Chicken Sausage, which also has no preservatives or nitrates added, with a plus, the chicken is grown organically. 

This sausage caught my eye, because usually ginger is pared with lemon, but I thought I would give it a try. The actual ingredients in the product are as follows, “Chicken, sea salt, Organic Dehydrated Vegetables (garlic and onion powder), Organic Spices, Organic sugar, Organic Dehydrated Orange Peel, Organic White Sesame Seed, Citric Acid, and Organic Orange Oil, Pork Casing.” Sounds great, right? 

Maybe your asking, How is an organic chicken raised? According to the Whole Foods Market Blog on raising organic chickens is:

  • The birds must be raised organically no later than two days after they hatch;
  • They must be fed certified organic feed for their entire lives. Organic feed cannot contain animal by-products, antibiotics or genetically engineered grains and cannot be grown using persistent pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
  • It is prohibited to give drugs, antibiotics and hormones to organic birds (please note: federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising poultry).
  • All birds must have outdoor access.

According to “She Knows“, “The chickens are not penned up in a cage or kept inside. Instead, they are allowed to roam through fields and pastures and to graze on the grass. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) requires that the animals have outdoor access to be considered free range. They also can seek shelter in a barn when they choose. These procedures are practiced all year long.”

bottled orange glaze sauceAlso used in the recipe is an Orange Ginger Sauce. The product we used is from Iron Chef, all natural and no preservatives added.

By this time the chicken sausage should have cooled some. Cut sausage into 1 inch chunks. Add peppers and cut sausage back to heated pan. Add the orange sauce and mix in till well coated, and allow the mixture to cook a little till sauce has heated, about 3 minutes.

  1. That sounds like an interesting combination of flavors. I also like that it is all organic. I have heard of chicken sausage from friends but I have not seen it sold in Sweden unfortunately. We make our own pork sausage. I guess we will have to try making chicken sausage. We are looking for an local organic chicken farmer. Thanks for another great recipe

    • Thanks Honey for your thought. Chicken sausage if prepared right and with some other good flavors is really great as an addition to making a meal.

      Chicken is easy to digest and is a great source of protein.

      Hope your feeling better Honey!! 🙂

      Thanks again for stopping by.
