With Memorial Day behind us, we're now officially in grilling season and these Skewers of Sage Chicken with Sweet Italian Sausage from Lorraine Wallace's Mr. Sunday's Saturday Night Chicken are exactly what we're looking for.

Combining lean cubes of chicken breast with fatty, flavorful Italian sausage is a genius move, with all of those great porky juices cooking into the chicken along with a gorgeous olive oil infused with garlic and rosemary. Oh, and the sage leaves wedged between the chicken and sausage? They've got all of the right bright, herbal notes that bring everything together.

What Worked: Chicken and sausage should be on the same skewer way more often. Who says it has to be either or? They're better together.

What Didn't: No complaints on our part.

Suggested Tweaks: We're thinking about other chicken-sausage combos. Perhaps a chorizo-pollo mash up with Mexican oregano?
