Grilled Chicken, Sausage, Pepper & Onion Kabobs

I wish every recipe I made came to me from divine appointment or intervention. 

Well, let me put your mind at ease…that doesn’t happen. {even though I wish it did, it would make my life alot easier}

This recipe in particular came to me as I was pushing the awesome red mustang car cart through the grocery store {for those of you who don’t know what a “mustang car cart” is, those are the huge honky carts that have a car attached to make sure your kid does not scream the entire time you are in the grocery store}.

I was passing the meat section and happened to glance over and saw these Poblano & Queso Chicken Sausages. First thought that came to mind was … YUM!… and they were on sale… WIN! So I grabbed them.

I wasn’t quite sure what to make, so my go-to technique when in doubt or just have a major cooking “brain toot” {sorry the word fart just grosses me out} is “throw it on the grill”. Everything tastes better on the grill, especially sausage! In order to get my veggies into this dish I sandwiches these delicious chicken sausages in between bell peppers and red onion thereby making what us “foodie” people call a kabob! 🙂

Kabobs are probably one of my favorite things to make on the grill because they are super easy, a great way to get rid of extra vegetables and/or fruit, usually pretty healthy for you, and they always come out tasting amazing. These Grilled Chicken Sausage Kabobs were no exception, and they come together in less than 30 minutes!

How to Make These Easy Grilled Chicken Kabobs

To get started, soak 10 wood skewers in water for 20 minutes. {this ensures that the skewers will not burn on the grill}

Next, cut up 2 red pepper into 1″ cubes, 2 yellow peppers into 1″. Cut one large red onion in half and then into cubes.

Lastly, cut 5 chicken sausage {any flavor} into 2″ sections, basically each sausage link will be cut into 3’s. 🙂

Assemble the kabobs, alternate the sausage with onions and peppers. Heat grill to medium high heat and place kabob on grill. Grill each side for 4-5 minutes.

    I found this on Show Stopper Sat. It looks so good, makes my mouth water! I love all these ingredients! Thanks for the share!

  2. Robyn @ simply fresh dinners

    These are beautiful and so scrumptious looking! I love the natural flavours of each ingredient and love it that you didn’t spoil them with a sauce. Your photography is always stunning, Krista!

      Thanks Robyn, you are too sweet. And so right on with sauce, we tend to put sauce on everything these days and sometimes it is just not needed. Just let the ingredients shine for themselves. 🙂

  3. Linda @ it all started witlh paint

    These look mouth-wateringly amazing!

    Pinning! Thanks so much for sharing at the Super Saturday Link Party!

    I am so making these kebabs when we roll out the grill, they look fantastic!
    Bad part about living in an apartment on a second floor, have to keep out huge grill in the garage 🙁

    1. Krista

      Oh… that is so not fun. My brother had the same problem when he was living in an apartment, all he did was grill in the summer but it took up his entire patio during the winter. The sacrifices we make to have good grilled food. 🙂

  5. Jodee Weiland

    I love these kabobs! I use chicken sausage often because it’s healthier and tastes just as good, but done like this, it’s even more delicious. Love cooking like this…thanks for sharing!

    1. Krista

      I haven’t used it that much but after having it grilled like this I can see this being my go to in the summer. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Jodee!

  6. Chris @ Shared Appetite

    You know, I totally don’t make kabobs enough. They don’t get enough love in our house. You’re making me want to uncover that grill today!!!

    1. Krista

      Well, get on it Chris. Super easy and so tasty. I even do the “cheater” version sometimes and just use my grill basket instead of putting it on the skewer. Get to grillin!

    1. Krista

      These chicken sausages in particular not, they are the HEB handmade brand. But I know that there are others out there that are!

  7. Mike@TheIronYou

    It’s funny because you call them kabobs while I tend to use kebabs instead. Who’s right? Who’s wrong? Honestly? Who cares when it looks so freaking delicious! 😉

    1. Krista

      haha.. tomatoes tooomotaoes… who cares is right. 🙂 They are seriously awesome and so stinking easy its almost embarrassing to post the recipe. 🙂

  8. Zainab @ Blahnik Baker

    Kebabs are our favorites in the summer. Always such an easy dinner to throw together. I love the that you used chicken sausage. I can’t wait to try it!! Wouldn’t it be great if all recipes came with divine intervention?? Hope you are having a great week!!

  9. Melanie @ Carmel Moments

    I only have one regret after looking at these pictures. I really REALLY want summer now. Gorgeous. Love the colors!

    1. Krista

      hahah… I know I’m right there with ya. But I’m sure once I see the 113 degree marker on my thermometer I will want summer to go away fast! Thanks for the foodie props Melanie!

    1. Krista

      Thanks Emily… I’m hoping that if I keep posting summer recipes mother nature will get the clue and just stay warm already! 🙂 No more cold weather!!
