Tips for Chicken Skewers
- If you like pineapple, adding chunks of fresh pineapple to these kabobs is a great addition! Really you can any of your favorites vegetables.
- Cutting the chicken and vegetables to a uniform size will ensure the vegetables and meat get done simultaneously.
- Reserve a cup of sauce prior to marinating the chicken. Brushing sauce on the kabobs when they come off the grill makes the skewers glisten, plus having extra sauce to pass at the table ensures all of the chicken will be moist and delicious!
- Double the recipe and make extra! On day two, dinner can be Teriyaki Chicken Salad and lunches are chicken teriyaki and vegetables stuffed in a wrap or pita bread. Add some spinach and ranch dressing, YUM!
- It only takes about 6 minutes per side - be careful not to overcook. Nobody likes dry chicken!!
