Chicken Apple Sausage

1 pound ground chicken
1 apple, peeled and diced
1 scallion, chopped fine
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon fresh sage, finely chopped
½ teaspoon fennel seeds, toasted and chopped
2-3 teaspoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper

Saute apples and scallions in canola oil until soft.  Set aside to cool.  In a separate bowl, combine ground chicken with remaining ingredients.  Mix well to combine.  Add cooled mixture to chicken and mix well. 

Test a small pinch by cooking in a non stick pan.  Taste and adjust seasoning.  Form into 8 patties and cook in a non stick pan over medium high heat about 2-3 minutes per side.  Internal temperature should be 170 degrees.
