Spicy and savory homemade chicken sausages wrapped with lettuce and crunchy vegetables. Great as an appetizer or meal!

Recipe from Bon Appetit, September 2012


1 pound ground chicken, I like dark meat
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1/2 Serrano pepper, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup oyster sauce
2 large shallots, minced
2-3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Scallions, sliced thin
Bean sprouts

Dipping sauce:

2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 lime, juice only
1/2 Serrano pepper, diced
2 tablespoons water


1) For dipping sauce, whisk ingredients together and set aside until needed.

2) Combine fish sauce, oyster sauce, diced shallots, garlic, and chiles along with flour in a medium bowl. Stir until mixed well.

3) If you are making your own ground chicken, Remove skin from thighs and/or breasts (1 lb total). If you want, leave some skin on for fat. Pulse in a food processor until slightly chunky.

4) Add ground chicken to other ingredients and stir well to combine.

5) Shape chicken mixture into 8 even patties.

6) Add a drizzle of vegetable oil to a large skillet and cook chicken sausages over medium-high heat for about 6-7 minutes per side until they are cooked through.

7) Once sausages are cooked, add them to clean leaves of lettuce and top with bean sprouts and scallions. Serve with dipping sauce on the side.
