I am a huge fan of sweet and savory foods. This Grilled Teriyaki Chicken is one of my favorite grilled chicken recipe. It's made with juicy chicken tender and just a few other ingredients!
HOW TO MAKE THE TERIYAKI GRILLED CHICKEN:
When it comes to chicken breast, unless I am stuffing them, I always use the chicken tenders. They are juicier and cook much faster. They are already a perfect size and all you have to do is clean out the outer film if there is any, and cut them into 1 inch cubes.
After cubing the chicken, marinate with the teriyaki sauce, minced garlic, a pinch of salt and olive oil. Let them marinate for 30 minutes if you have enough time. But you can always skip that and grill right away. You can assemble the chicken pieces on a skewer with your favorite veggies. I used peppers and onions. You can add some Zucchinis if you like as well.
COOKING THE TERIYAKI GRILLED CHICKEN:
I used an indoor grill to grill these Teriyaki Chicken Skewers. It gives them an outdoor grill look and flavor, which I absolutely love. But if you don't have one, you can always broil them in the oven. Place the chicken skewers on a sheet pan lined with aluminum foil, and broil in the middle section of the oven. Do not place too low or too high up. Grill each side for approximately 8 minutes or until fully cooked. Preheat the oven first. I usually turn my broil on for about 5 minutes to obtain the 550 degrees temperature before I start grilling the chicken. Remove and serve.
This Teriyaki Grilled Chicken is also great for meal prepping. You can serve it with some brown rice, more veggies or even zoodles if you are looking to keep your carbs on track.
