I have wanted to share these Cajun Chicken and Sausage Kebabs for a while, but honestly I just never get around to taking photos of them before we eat. I’m always too anxious to eat them hot and fresh off the grill. So, I finally managed to snap two photos of them before we ate them last week. The pictures hardly do them justice–they’re the BEST! You just can’t go wrong with grilled chicken, sausage, veggies and homemade cajun seasoning.
Some important things to note about this recipe:
- My husband declares these his favorite kebabs I’ve ever made. That’s saying a lot considering how often we eat kebabs! The flavor of these are amazing!
- We like spice, especially when it comes to cajun food! If you don’t like spicy food I would cut down on the cayenne pepper, or just leave it out.
- 1 (12 oz package) andouille sausages (about 4 sausages), sliced into 1/2 inch thick coins
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 chicken breasts, cut into chunks
- 3 bell peppers, any color, cut into chunks
- 1 purple onion, cut into chunks
- 1 zucchini, sliced into coins
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- Prepare the cajun seasoning by combining all ingredients in a small bowl.
- Soak wooden skewers in water while you make the cajun seasoning. (Soaking them in water helps prevent them from burning on the grill).
- Add sausages to mixing bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and half of the cajun seasoning. Toss to coat. Season the cut chicken with remaining cajun seasoning.
- Layer skewers alternating with pieces of chicken, sausage, and chopped vegetables. You can pack them together closely.
- Clean and heat your grill. Spray with non-stick cooking spray or oil.
- Place prepared kebabs on hot grill. Cook for a few minutes on each side, gently rotating them 2 or 3 times as they cook, until the chicken is cooked through. Remove to a plate. Serve immediately.
