This is such a good grill recipe! The marinade is so flavorful and the chicken and sausage are a great combo! I added a few zucchini pieces to the kabobs as well and served them over rice.

Substitute boneless skinless chicken thighs for the breasts. You have now eliminated the bland breasts with full flavored chicken pieces. Would not change any other part of this recipe.

Delicious - sausage was especially good. I had marinated overnight because of a time issue. Onions and pineapple were a bit soggy when skewering but tasted very good after cooking.

This was very good. i did make a few changes.. I didnt have lemon pepper seasoning so used lemon zest, and used brown sugar instead of regular sugar. I also added grilling spice to the marinade. Helped kick the chicken up a bit. Thanks for sharing!

Delicious exactly as written!! I do marinate overnight for a stronger flavor! I thicken the veggie marinate and serve over rice, with eggrolls

We made this last night for dinner and can't wait to have it again. As my husband likes to tell me,"It's a keeper" Delicious!

We gobbled this up in minutes. Delicious. Like another reviewer, I thickened the sauce to serve over rice. Next time I'll try adding zucchini chunks, as someone suggested.

I loved the flavor combination in this recipe. I made one change and that was to marinade the chicken with a lemon pepper sauce and I only put the peppers and turkey kielbasa in the recipe-made marinade. My whole family loved them - they were a hit!

These were very good! I thickened the marinade after I took the veggies out of the bag and served it over the rice. Very good.
