‘Tis the season for Barbecuing! As you already know, we had a little rooftop cookout last weekend where Deanna made Simple Grilled Shrimp and a delicious Strawberry Lemonade! Since I never come empty handed to a BBQ, I brought my go-to-grilling-favorite, Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Kebobs.
As you may know, most teriyaki sauces are LOADED with sugar and sodium, but I like to make my own so that I can control exactly what goes into my marinade. This recipe is simple to make and won’t ruin your hard earned summer figure!
For these kebobs, I chose onions, tomatoes and peppers as my veggies… but every time I make these I tend to change it up, The beauty of kebobs is that there is no wrong way to make them! Whatever you want, just stick it on the kebob and grill it up! feel free to load up your skewers with any vegetables and protein you like.
