Teriyaki Chicken Skewers
Teriyaki Chicken Skewers perfectly charred on the grill. The sauce is sugar free and are a healthier version using agave nectar or honey with extra sauce used for dipping. It’s so easy to make and is so much better for you than any bottled sauces you can buy.
Everyone loves chicken skewers (or kabobs). With the New Year well underway, resolutions are already out the window because no one wants to eat bland food. Well, let me tell you, there’s nothing bland about these Teriyaki Chicken Skewers. We could all use a little less sugar in our lives. This recipe for teriyaki chicken skewers is healthy, but not lacking in flavor.
Teriyaki sauce can sometimes be an overly sweet, full of sugar sauce. Adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s All Good cookbook, this teriyaki sauce is actually good because of the ingredients.
The ingredients in the sauce are very different than the usual teriyaki sauce, but it is just as good. With a balsamic vinegar base, sweetness from honey, or agave, fresh ginger, red miso and rice vinegar. Some of these ingredients have detoxing properties, so you can eat, guilt-free.
The recipe starts with boneless skinless chicken breasts. They are cut into 3 x 1 inch strips, marinated in the teriyaki sauce, put onto skewers and grilled, either on an outdoor grill, or a grill pan on the stove top.
Great appetizers for cocktail parties, get togethers or just to watch the game on a fun Sunday afternoon. I made these for a lovely lunch last week along with a shaved carrot fennel salad with ginger dressing and charred edamame with togarashi.
