Richmond Chicken Sausages Launch!

I was invited to a foodie event last week (my favourite kind!). It was part of the launch of Richmond Chicken Sausages. Hands up who has eaten chicken sausages? Anyone? Nope, me neither. I’ll admit I was intrigued as to what they would actually taste like.

The event was such a lot of fun. We got to meet Angellica Bell who had designed three recipes using chicken sausages instead of usual pork ones. As well as getting to taste the lovely food over a lunch with everyone we got to do some cooking challenges – making a yorkshire pudding and some home made baked beans. Very tasty they were too!

I’ll be trying the chicken sausages on the boys at some point because I think they will like them. There’s always debate about sausages, especially cheaper brands, but a lot of the time they are the only ones kids will eat. Richmonds Chicken Sausages at least are 30% less fat and 20% less calories, but equally as tasty as the usual pork ones. I’d even hazard to say they taste pretty much the same when they are in dishes like casserole or pasta!

I’m going to cook them in my secret stew recipe. It uses dried mushrooms and sundried tomatoes and wine and is so yummy – it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out with the chicken sausages!

As part of the launch I get to do a giveaway – hurrah – of a Β£25 Tesco voucher so you guys can go out and try your own recipes! You can get Richmond Chicken Sausages in all the major supermarkets by the way, with the RRP being Β£2.50 per pack. To enter the competition use the thingybob below and I’m looking forward to seeing your recipe ideas in the comments! All usual T&C apply and competition closes 30th May.

  1. Toad in the hole is a favourite of ours. If the meat is removed from the skin you could make great meatballs and pasta in tomato sauce

  2. I think I would like to try them pan roasted with a selection of Mediterranean veg. Add loads of fresh tomatoes so that they make a little sauce with the veg.

  3. At first I thought ‘chicken sausages’?! No surely not. But now I’m looking at what you could do with them, chicken sausage casserole, into pasta… I’m now thinking ‘well why not?’
    I remember going through something similar when I was a child and sat in a restaurant my dad told me that I was eating beef sausages and mash. I wasn’t impressed, but they weren’t all that different either and the plate was clean by the end. I’ve sometimes stuck them on a Bbq when I’m a little underprepared and the shops have all but sold of of sausages on the only sunny bank holiday of the year.

    I’m in. I’ll probably try with pasta first, a quick dish to get a taste.But the possibilities could be endless and a decent substitution.

  4. I think a chicken sausage curry casserole with peppers would be lovely, served with some savoury rice.

  5. i do a roast with burgers or sausage sometimes, so a chicken sausage would be ideal with roasties, veg, yorkshire, stuffing, lovely

  6. I’m not the most creative of people when it comes to recipe ideas, I tend to pinch ideas from the internet, I would most likely make sausage and mash with peas and chicken gravy

  7. We have sausage, cheese-topped mash and cauliflower regularly throughout the year. No need to mess around with them!

  8. Ultimate toad-in-the-hole with caramelised onion gravy. Wrap fat sausages in streaky bacon for a posh version of a British classic – perfect comfort food for the whole family.

  9. Really simple but my daughter’s favourite ……. cheesy mash, with sausages, baked beans and peas. These seem like a much healthier option, so I would probably cook it more often for her.

  10. I tried these last week! Much healthier for my family… we made a sausage casserole with finely chopped chorizo, carrots, onions, peppers, mushrooms, a tin of beans, a tin of chopped tomatoes, finely diced garlic, paprika & mixed herbs, then served it with a few jersey royals. Was a big hit with the kids (and the mr)

  11. Mmm I’m not so sure about chicken sausages, 8 can’t stand chopped and formed chicken as it is. I think what puts me off is that a lot of the hot dog sausages in tins are made from chicken – although it’s mechanically recovered chicken – yuck! I guess I would just try them out on my kids first, bangers and mash would be my first meal made with them.

  12. I’d do sausage gnocchi – squeeze out the meat from the skin and make a lovely sausage each to serve with gnocchi

  13. They sound great – perhaps you could remove from the skins and do homemade sausage rolls. It would be a great summery picnic snack πŸ™‚

  14. Barbecued ! Then served in a hot dog bun with salad ! A healthier alternative at a BBQ if you’re watching your weight .

  15. Toad-in-the-hole with caramelised onion gravy. I’d wrap fat sausages in streaky bacon for a posh version of a British classic – perfect comfort food for the whole family.

  16. I think they would be great as chicken sausage rolls but using filo pastry for a lighter and more crunchy roll

  17. Spicy chilli and tomato pasta bake with tons of veggies would be delicious with the addition of chicken sausages!

  18. Bit of a cheat as not really a recipe, but the sun is here, so why not grill and eat on hotdog rolls with ketchup and fried onions.

  19. i love sausage meatball pasta. You take the sausage meat out of the skin, make 2-3 balls and fry them in a pan and add cooked pasta and the egg mixture. thank you.

  20. I’d try good ol’ bangers and mash – I’m intrigued to see how they would taste with chicken sausages – and chicken gravy too I suppose!!

  21. Sausage pesto pasta! I have made this with pork sausages before so I’m sure it would be delicious with these.

  22. Baked Bean Pie – a layer of baked beans with sausage, bacon, mushroom and onions all mixed together, then a layer of mashed potato on top then cheese on top of that. Put it in the oven for 30 mins and serve with naan bread to mop up the bean juice. AMAZING!

  23. I have ordered some in my weekly delivery, I am going to make toad in the hole and a casserole with them

  24. Sausage and bean pie would be delicious with Richmond chicken sausages. We prefer a shortcut lid. We used baker beans with cooked sausages then rebake in the oven.

  25. Chicken sausages go great in a spanish frittata. It’s a great way of using up any left over boiled potatoes.I recommend throwing in a generous amount of spinach, it really makes the difference.

  26. Thanks for this, if I won I’d make sausage pasta for my children because it’s one of their favourites.

  27. TOULOUSE SAUSAGE ROLL AND DAUPHINOISE POTATOES – yum! The roll is currently the family favourite way to eat sausage.

  28. Chicken sausages, potatoes, veg. Put everything in a roasting tin, sausages on top and chuck the whole thing in the oven. Easy peasy!

  29. Think I would make a chicken sausage hotpot with carrots and swede with added potato slices on the top and roasted in the oven.

  30. I’d break them up and make them in to balls, then cook with rigatoni, red wine, a simple red sauce, then layer with spinach and bechamel sauce. Top with mature cheddar and bake. YUM!

  31. Left over mashed potato and celeriac, add chopped up sausages and fry to make a hash. Add Henderson’s or Worcestershire sauce to serve.

  32. Im going to do mine in a sausage pasta bake. Remove the skins and fry the meat with onions and garlic, some herbs and black pepper. Boil some pasta at the same time, and heat a bolognese sauce up too (tins of tomato, pepper, garlic, onions, basil, oregano, sugar, tomato paste, onion all blended) and put altogether in a casserole dish and put in the oven for about twenty minutes, sprinkled with cheese. I find it yummy easy to do. And I can change the veg I put in there too. I cant wait to try it with the chicken sausages.

  33. I’d like to see what good old sausage and mash tastes like with these Richmond chicken sausages

  34. By pure coincidence I had Richmond chicken sausages for tea tonight for the first time. I made a sweet and sour chicken sausage pasta bake.

  35. definitely toad in the hole or my familys favourite homemade chicken sausage pizza with chips and beans great giveaway
