How to Cook Our Chicken Sausage:
When it comes to how to cook chicken sausage, your options are nearly limitless! Most chicken sausages, like True Story Foods chicken sausage, are precooked, making prep a breeze. Throw your chicken sausages in a pan and give them a good sear or throw them on the grill for a smokier flavor. When cooking in a pan or on the grill, we like to add a touch of water to the pan, turning the sausages a couple of times while they’re heating to make sure they’re thoroughly cooked through. You can cook them whole or cut them into coin-like pieces.
When cooking on the stovetop or grill, you’ll know when the chicken sausage links are ready when they darken in color, and the casings become taut. Cooking them on the grill will also cause beautiful grill marks!
