‘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.
- 6 skinless boneless chicken breast
- 1 large red onion
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 red bell pepper
- 24 grape tomatoes
- 12 bamboo or metal skewers
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 10 drops of stevia (sweeten to your preference)
- 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
- 1 tablespoon ginger puree or fresh grated ginger root
- 1 tablespoon garlic puree or fresh garlic, finely diced
- Mix soy sauce, water, stevia, honey (if using), ginger puree, and garlic puree in small saucepan and simmer about 15 minutes, until reduced by about 1/3 to 1/2. Allow mixture to cool.
- Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken pieces, then cut into cubes. (you can ask your butcher to do this for you!)
- Cut veggies to desired size. Put the chicken and veggies into a gallon sized baggie with the marinade. Place the baggie in the fridge for 1-3 hours.
- If using wooden skewers soak them in water for 30 minutes.
- Spear the chicken and veggies on each skewer.
- Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning every 3 to 4 minutes, until nicely browned on all sides and the meat is no longer pink in the center, 12 to 16 minutes total per skewer.
