The Best Chicken and Sausage Kebabs Ever!

"We've made this recipe so many times I can't even count anymore - often for company - and always to accolades. It seems like a lot of meat, but make it all. If you have company, it will be gone, and if you don't, you'll love the leftovers!"

Ready In:
2hrs 50mins




  • Cut the chicken and sausage into thick pieces of roughly equal size and place in a large ziploc bag.
  • In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the remaining ingredients for the marinade. Pour the marinade into the ziploc bag with the meat, seal and distribute so all of the meat is covered with marinade. Let sit for a minimum of two hours or up to eight.
  • When finished marinating, skewer the meat onto metal or wooden skewers, alternating two pieces of sausage, then two pieces of chicken.
  • Grill for 20 minutes or until done, turning the kebabs once halfway during cooking.
  • Serve on a platter, and take the meat off the skewers at the table. It makes a nice presentation.

    Excellent marinade.....since it was just 2 of us I cut back on the meat but made the full amount of marinade and added veggies to the remainder. I used cherry tomatoes, red bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, sweet onion and mushrooms. I also used 1/2 red wine vinegar and 1/2 balsamic vinegar. This recipe will definitely be used a lot ~ thank you for sharing.

    Loved the marinade on the chicken, but didn't feel it did much for the sausage.....what it did for the chicken was great though! Used a pork sweet sausage,may try using a turkey or chicken sweet sausage next time. Also parboiled some small new potatoes and then marinated them separately with this marinade and did them on separate skewers, quite nice flavor for these too! Thanx for posting.

    FALL PAC 2009: Simple and easy to make - marinade is quick to prepare - delicious!


Well, I love to cook! Big surprise there. I've gotten so many great recipes from RecipeZaar that I finally decided to join. My goal is to organize all of my stray recipes to make sure they don't get lost, and also to remember which ones we love! I like a lot of variety, so I rarely cook the same thing week after week. The trouble is, as time goes by, it becomes difficult to remember all of the dishes that everyone loved and/or menus that were a hit when we had company. I'm hoping RecipeZaar will help on that front. I work part-time and have 2 young children, so mostly what I focus on these days is preparing simple, fresh, healthy meals that all of us will enjoy. Our kids are not coddled - they are expected to eat what they are served. However, I do try to have at least one item on the menu that I KNOW they'll like. They are very good eaters overall, but of course they have slightly different tastes, and my son is a "separator," which makes soups and casseroles a challenge sometimes. Luckily, my husband will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that is put in front of him. :-)
