Cooking Fresh chicken sausages

I bought some fresh chicken sausages at Whole Foods and have a question about cooking them. I usually buy the kind that are already cooked so all I have to do is brown them on the grill or in the oven. I always simmer pork sausage before browning them, but is the chicken sausage too lean for this and will simmering it first dry it out too much?

  1. I buy fresh chicken sausages at my farmer's market all the time, and we always just cook them on the grill, and by the time they are nicely browned and crispy, they're also cooked through. They cook pretty quickly, though, and they can dry out if you leave them on too long (check if yours list cheese as an ingredient - this helps a lot with the moistness).
