It’s getting to be the time of year when grills get covered and ignored for a few months while we all hunker down and brave the cold temperatures from the warmth of our house.  If you are a die-hard griller that uses their grill year-round – kudos to you!  If you are like me and want to sneak in one last grilled meal before you stick to indoor cooking, keep reading 😊

Chicken Sausage Kabobs with Honey Balsamic Glaze are a quick and easy weeknight meal that is ready in about 30 minutes.  The chicken is moist, the vegetables are tender, and the pineapple adds a lovely citrus flavor to every bite.  My favorite part is the honey balsamic glaze.  It’s sweet and salty and creates this lovely coating on the kabobs.  I prefer to use bell peppers on the kabobs, but you can use zucchini, squash, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, onions, etc.  Feel free to really make the kabobs your own.

The recipe can be found here.

Preheat the grill to 300-325 degrees F.  Try to keep the temperature within this range.

Combine the honey, balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and salt in a small bowl.  Whisk to combine and set aside.

Slice the chicken sausage and bell peppers (or whatever veggies you choose to use).  Slice a fresh pineapple into chunks or drain the juice from the can of pineapple.

Use 4 metal skewers to create the kabobs and alternate each ingredient.  Skewer one piece of chicken sausage, followed by one piece of red bell pepper, one piece of pineapple, and one piece of yellow bell pepper.  Repeat this order until each skewer is full.  If you run out of any ingredients simply double up on others.

Add the skewers to the preheated grill and cook for 10-12 minutes, rotating every 2-3 minutes, until the kabobs are warmed through and slightly charred.  You want some nice grill marks!

I must provide a disclaimer.  This recipe uses PRECOOKED chicken sausage.  The meat is not on the grill long enough to completely cook the sausage, just warm it through.  If you choose to use uncooked sausage, be prepared to cook the meat longer and temperature check the center to ensure its cooked through!  Alternately, you could just grill some brats and add veggies to a grill pan but that takes away the fun of making kabobs 😊

Periodically brush the glaze on the kabobs while they cook.

Once done, remove the kabobs from the grill and brush with the glaze one last time.  Serve immediately and enjoy!

If you’re willing to brave the cold…or wind…or snow…this time of year, I highly recommend you give these kabobs a try!

Happy Cooking!
