A flavourful, crunchy slaw provides the perfect contrast to savoury precooked chicken sausage. To speed up prep work, use 1 cup bagged coleslaw mix instead of the shredded carrots and cabbage. The slaw can be made up to 1 day before serving. These grilled sausage sandwiches make a delicious one-dish meal that comes together in less than 20 minutes. The precooked sausages save so much time in the kitchen.

  3. Grill sausages, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and marked from grill, 5 to 6 minutes. Grill buns until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Arrange sausages in buns. Top with slaw and garnish with more parsley (if using).
