Serve with side of Rice:
2c Rice
2 Chicken Broth Cubes, crushed + 2c Water
1/2-1 can Black Eyed Peas, drained

I used Bone In Chicken and Removed the Skin. Add to ziploc bag. Toss with Vinegar and Louisiana Hot Sauce. Then, add in rest. Mix Around. Marinade 4-6 hours. LAST 30 MINUTES, ADD Shrimp to Marinade.
We charcoal grilled in foil pan: Butter Flavor Cooking Spray pan. Add in Vegis.
PREMIX Sauce. Pour over Vegis. Top with Link, then Chicken and Shrimp. Covering is optional.
Served with Side of Rice with Black Eyed Peas: Crush Broth Cubes, Add to Water and stir. Add Rice. I microwaved. Once cooked, mix in 1/2-1 can drained Black Eyed Peas.

Notes: You can try with Stewed Tomatoes, in place of Tomato Soup. You can also try Tomato Sauce, etc. I liked as was. Am leaving it.
ALSO, if Charcoal grilling: Try to make sure Coals are Level to level out heat. And, You can USE A LIL WATER to Help with Bottom Burning too Much! We did NOT have this problem, and did NOT need Water, but, your Choice! Or, you can choose to dilute the Tomato Soup.
