Haha, GusRobin in all seriousness I usually spend the time making  these and turn around and give them all away! Think I have 4 or 5 sticks for myself 😐

I had a busy day, and didn't have much time to look at your recipe. I'll take another look at it. People differ in taste, so I'll just go by what I noticed in the amount of ingredient or lack of ingredients.

Fat - will be needed. Chicken fat has a very low melting point. If you don't want to use pork fat, maybe add Soy Powder or Powder milk to keep sausage from getting crumbly.

Liquid - I always add a liquid when I make sausage; maybe for sticks it is not needed. For this amount I would add 1/4 - 1/2 cup of liquid.

Garlic - you have fresh chopped plus garlic powder. Maybe both can work with out too heavy a garlic flavor

Chili powder - seems high

Paprika - is very  high

Cayenne - seem high to me, but if you like heat it maybe alright.

I haven't had time to look at the rest. I look at it some more.


EDITED:
I didn't mention that cure #1 is not in the recipe. Since you've been making sticks, I knew you know that it is needed. The amounts for the rest of the recipe looks good. I'm guessing you are using table salt. For myself that looks a little low, but seasonings can always be adjusted after you do a taste test. Let me know if you make it and how it comes out.

Habs this was just a chicken sausage recipe I happened to find online.. I agree with you that it seems heavy on some ingredients. Ill use this as a guideline and document as I go, most definitely going to use 10% pork fat and allways use 3% soy concentrate in my recipes. Thinking im going to pick up 5lbs of turkey breast for this project and stuff on friday night! Hopefully this becomes a sucess!
Thanks for your input, much Appreciated

Johnny.

Great looking sticks.
Homemade are so much better than the packaged crap.
