Chicken and Lemongrass Sausage

It was noted recently by ahm Fae glasgow that extra sausage meat can be used to make dumplings. In this recipe I took a dumpling recipe and used it as a guide for making a sausage recipe. There are many dumpling recipes that could be re-imagined this way. This is modeled on a recipe from Dumplings All Day Wong by Lee Anne Wong for lemongrass chicken dumpling soup (which was excellent BTW, as is the book). I dropped coconut cream from the recipe, replaced garlic and shallot with chives and added jasmine rice cooked in chicken stock. I also added a few water chestnuts to give the sausages some extra texture.

The chicken thigh meat and fat came from 6 pounds of chicken leg quarters (with back) bought for $ 0.70 / pound. Everything not used for sausage went into making chicken stock (made about 3 quarts).

Chicken meat and fat 850 g

Jasmine rice 85 g
Stock 175 g

Cooked to give 250 g after cooling

Salt 14.3 g
White pepper 3.5 g
Lemongrass 64 g (4 T)
Jalapeño finely minced 14 g
Chives 4 g
Water chestnuts minced 56 g
Brown sugar 13 g (1 T)
Lime zest 3 g
Lime juice 42 g

Grind chicken then add rest and mix. Form into 70 g patties. This should be good in a banh mi sandwich.

I will be adding this to the summertime selection, BBQ's get busy and always great to throw something new into the mix.
I'm Too cheap to buy store made sausages, but spent way too much on equipment.

Chive looks low - does it have an effect? I bet the texture's great with the water chestnut.

The chives were there for me, the water chestnuts were an excellent addition and will be used in some other recipes. Pretty soon I'll start getting good at this. :D

Using pre-ground tubed lemongrass makes this much easier. We can get ginger in the same form and package; I'm usually not much for prepared foods but I like both of these.
