Notes:

  • The cinnamon is added just to add a bit of warmth to the flavor, it is very subtle.
  • For those who are not following Whole30, you can add 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup for a different taste.
  • If you cannot find chicken substitute turkey or pork.
  • You can also form the sausage patties, flatten with your hands and place them straight into the skillet.
  • If you do not feel like forming patties, add the ground chicken and seasonings to the skillet and finish cooking with the onions and apple.
