Take-out Tuesday, Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs with Smoked Sausage, Peaches and Apricots

Here is a great combo for your next cook out, summer kebabs with smoked sausage, chicken, fresh peaches and dried apricots.  I got this idea from Lynn over at Happier than a Pig in Mud~she is “kebab master” and when I saw peaches on one of her recent creations, I had to try it~to see her Ham and Peach Kabobs with Peach Bourbon Glaze click here


Lawry’s Hawaiian Marinade made quick work of adding flavor to the cut up boneless chicken thighs


Let the chicken marinate all day or overnight for the best flavor and reserve about 1/3 of the bottle for basting while cooking

The sweet basting sauce adds a little char to everything while its cooking

I don’t have a lot of pretty presentation photos for this, as we were being entertained by our houseguest who is a professional fiddler…he said he was “singing for his supper”


Nothing like a few cocktails at sunset, tapping to some bluegrass and smelling the kebabs on the grill


Ready set eat!

  • Cut chicken into large, even pieces. The boneless thighs will yield about 4 squares each.

    Singing for his supper, adorable! I do this with chicken breast chunks as we don’t like dark meat.
    Do you have Duck Sauce there? That’s what I use. It has apricot in it.

    I would cook anything for anyone if they fiddled while I worked! I didn’t know there was a Hawaiian Marinade on the market, but I’ll have to look for it. I used to make something like this with peppers – so delicious! And of course, putting anything on skewers makes it a party!

    This sounds delicious Jenna, I was drooling over Lynn’s version too! I bet your fiddler/ house guest was happy to sing for his supper 🙂 Our local peaches are dwindling…*sniff*…I can only find ones from CA now.

    Sounds like one heck of an awesome evening! I like your take on kebabs just wish I liked cooked fruit. The conecuh and chicken together sounds great and I’ll definitely have to remember that combo with some yummy veggies. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

  7. Kebabs have been on my mind Jenna and yours sound great! It’s finally warming up here in Philly. I bet you all had a blast enjoying the music:@)
