Heat rice in a steamer.
In a large skillet, sauté the chicken sausages until browned. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet sauté peppers, onions and garlic. When these ingredients start getting soft, add the zucchini and cook until crisp tender.
Stir about half of the barbecue sauce into the vegetables and cook until the sauce thickens slightly.
Add the chicken sausage to the skillet with the remaining barbecue sauce. Cook until the chicken sausage is warmed through.
