Heck Chicken Italia Sausages

Last summer we were at the Good Food Show at the NEC in Birmingham. The foodie place to be if you love your food and trying new things.

We tried many different foods from new pies to new honey, to plenty of cheese to the best soft and fudgy brownies.

We were also amused by the number of drunk teenagers that were enjoying the free vodka samples, whilst their parents were not looking. Why didn’t my mum and dad take me there in my teens lol!

But of course, snacking on brownies didn’t fill us up and we were looking for something delicious for lunch.

That is when we stumbled across the Heck stall selling chicken sausages. Never had a Heck sausage before and was pleasantly surprised by their deliciousness. Served with some salad it was yummy.

On our return back to Yorkshire, I said to Dom that I must buy some Heck sausages from the supermarket and see how well they do in the air fryer.

Can You Air Fry Chicken Sausages?

YES, YES, YES, you can air fry chicken sausages. In fact, I would name chicken as the best type of sausages to air fry.

That is because sausages carry a LOT of fat and many of them are not suitable for the air fryer. For example, Richmond sausages is one of the sausages we avoid because it literally makes the air fryer smoke due to the fat.

Are Heck Chicken Sausages Healthy?

Yes, heck sausages are much healthier compared to regular sausages. I love them because they are gluten free and its hard to find gluten free sausages that taste good.

Heck sausages are also low fat and because of their high protein means that they fill you up.

I recommend trying heck Italian sausages in our air fryer harvest casserole to make the recipe even healthier.

We are using Heck chicken Italia sausages (the same as we had at the NEC) but you can mix and match with whichever chicken sausages you are using or swap for turkey sausages because they have a similar time and temp in the air fryer.

How To Cook Heck Chicken Sausages?

  • Load. Start by loading chicken sausages into the air fryer basket.
  • Cook. Then set the temperature to 180c/360f and cook for 8 minutes.
  • Spray. Then spray with extra virgin olive oil and increase the temperature to 200c/400f and cook for a further 2 minutes or until crispy to your liking.

And I am sure you can see now how easy heck chicken sausage is and why you should be doing it too!

How Long Do Heck Sausages Take In The Air Fryer?

The Heck sausages take about 8 minutes to cook. But on 8 minutes are not beautifully crispy like you expect sausages to be.

That is because Heck sausages are healthier and lower in fats.

So, we give the sausages another 2 minutes just to help them get crispy.

How Long To Cook Raw Chicken Sausage In Air Fryer?

Uncooked chicken sausage in air fryer takes between 8-10 minutes depending on the air fryer you are using and how crispy you like the sausages. Often chicken sausages are thinner than classic pork sausages so sometimes you can air fry them even quicker.

What To Serve With Heck Sausages?

As heck chicken sausages are the healthier sausage I recommend serving them in a salad. And to slice the sausages and add them on top of a salad.

Our favourite is an air fryer cobb salad, but you can also make an instant pot quinoa salad, or how abouts a halloumi salad or a cherry tomato salad.

    I love Heck chicken sausages. Healthy and full of flavour i used to cook them in my oven but his is a great idea. They did not as long to cook and they tasted so much better, more juicy than in my oven, so thanks for the idea.
