Apples and chicken may seem like an unusual combination, but they make a wonderful meal when grilled to perfection, The thyme marinade gives a boost of flavor and tenderizes the chicken nicely.

In Hebron, Indiana, Edna Hoffman relies on sausage to make these colorful kabobs different from most. The meaty chunks are skewered with tart apples and colorful peppers, then basted with a mild sweet glaze.
In Hays, Kansas, Helen Shubert uses red-hot candies to turn ordinary apples into something cinnamony and sensational. The tender treats bake on the grill during dinner. "Then just serve in bowls and top with ice cream," Helen suggests.
My husband and I love preparing entire meals on the grill, to the surprise and delight of company. We create this unique dessert for my mother, who can't eat most grain products. She was thrilled with the sweet fruit topping spooned over vanilla ice cream.
