A flavorful, crunchy slaw provides the perfect contrast to savory 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 sausage save so much time in the kitchen. You can also use the chicken sausage in breakfast dishes. Grill the buns for a charred flavor.
