Chicken sausage cooks quickly on the grill to make an easy and delicious weeknight meal. We placed the chicken sausage on a bun and topped it with a chickpea salsa that's a vibrant mix of flavors that includes chickpea, pimiento, paprika, red onion, sherry vinegar and oregano. The chickpea salsa can be made ahead.
