Cajun Chicken And Sausage Skewers Recipe

These chicken and sausage skewers have a distinct flavor and texture because they’re loaded with Cajun seasonings and plenty of grilled veggies. Andouille sausages are made of pork, and their origin can be traced back to France.

These sausages migrated to Louisiana, where Creole cuisine embraced them. Made of smoked pork, garlic, pepper, and plenty of seasonings, they’re juicy and bursting with flavor.

Want to dip those skewers in a creamy sauce? Try a Cajun-spiced mayo. Instead of using the adobo sauce in this recipe, use Cajun spices.

Combine mayonnaise, Cajun spices, cumin, apple cider vinegar, and lime juice in a small bowl and adjust until you get the taste just right. No mayo? No problem – these skewers are perfectly eaten right off the skewer.

You can serve this as a main dish for dinner or as an appetizer at a backyard BBQ. If you’re enjoying these for dinner, serve them over a bed of cauliflower rice and a side salad.
