Dave in AZ I cannot argue with that.
Habanero and Mango Chicken Brats
Did a small batch of Habanero and Mango brats using 5 pounds of ground thighs and legs with a little breast meat, sure gel for binder and about a half cup of water. Stuffed in natural hog casing. Turned out great, nice heat and flavor. Will definitely be doing more of these.
Do you have a recipe? I’d like to give them a try.
This was my process, I deboned and ground up chicken thigh quarters (legs and thighs) with a med plate and add in a couple plump chicken breasts to get 5 lbs of ground chicken. I went with 9.5 oz of the Habanero and Mango Excalibur seasoning and 1.2 oz of sure gel with about a 1/2 cup of water. Mixed thoroughly then ran it through the stuffer into 30-32 mm natural hog casing. Turned out great. They have some zip to them but was a great alternative to pork brats.
jsaaz23 Thighs are so much better than breast in my mind. Especially if you aren’t adding any pork fat. Great choice of seasoning to protein!
