Teriyaki Chicken and Vegetable Kebabs

When I think of summer foods I think of grilled foods.  Nothing is better than going into the yard or going to the park, firing up the grill and cooking up some meat. Whether you are grilling hamburgers, ribs, or bbq chicken. One of my favorite meals to cook on the grill is kebabs. I love kebabs because you can load them up with a bunch of delicious vegetables and some delicious meat and throw them on the grill with your favorite sauce. We like to add chicken, pork or beef. Our vegetable choices are usually a mix of peppers, onions, squash and sometimes we add pineapple too! And then we like teriyaki sauce, bbq sauce, or whatever. For this recipe, or more of a guideline I chose to do teriyaki chicken and vegetable kebabs. But feel free to switch it up a little, however you want.

  1. I am in Ohio, and have not heard of “Yoshidas sauce”. Can you describe it, please? I want to surprise my DH with these. They have set my mouth to watering just looking at the pics. So glad I stumbled upon your blog. Thank you for posting.

    1. Pat, its type of sweet teriyaki sauce. I usually buy it at Costco but have seen it at other grocery stores, usuallty in the asian foods section. Here is what it looks like http://www.mryoshidas.com/images/bottle_bottom.jpg

  2. My favorite activity would definitely be barbeques! I love grilling.
