Lou's Most Excellent Sausage Stuffed Chicken
Brilliant. Genius. Innovation defined.
How can one not go wrong with a chicken breast stuffed with sausage and then grilled? The idea hit me while running the other day as I didn't want to do my usual schtick with the bird, and this came up. I'm still patting myself on the back.
1 whole chicken breast, with skin and bone in, split
2 smoked sausages, skin removed*
Lou's Most Excellent Chicken Brine, minus the oregano, rosemary, chives, thyme, and onion.
*I used Meyer's Elgin sausage for this recipe.
Brine the chicken parts.
Cut the sausage lengthwise into thirds. Place three sausage strips in between the skin and the meat and lightly coat the skin with olive oil.
Cook the chicken as per LME Grilled Chicken tips skin side down, using hickory as your main smoke flavor.
