MANGO CHICKEN SAUSAGE
2 teaspoons plus 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup very finely diced onion
1 pound ground chicken
1/2 cup finely diced fresh mango
1 tablespoon minced fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon salt
1. In a heavy skillet, heat the 2 teaspoons of the oil over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 5 minutes until soft and tender.
2. Scrape onion into a medium bowl and let cool for 5 minutes. Add chicken, mango, chives, red pepper flakes and salt. Using clean hands, mix everything together, making sure to get the mango distributed throughout.
3. Using wet hands, form the chicken into 8 equal sized patties, pushing down to flatten a little bit and laying on parchment paper.
4. Heat the same skillet over medium high heat and add remaining oil. Gently place patties in the pan, in batches if needed for about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown on each side and cooked through.
