Must-Try Teriyaki Chicken and Pineapple Kebabs

May 21, 2013

Teriyaki chicken and pineapple kebabs are a summertime favorite.  Cubes of boneless skinless chicken breasts are marinated overnight in a teriyaki sauce flavored with fresh garlic and ginger.  The teriyaki chicken is skewered with snow peas and slices of sweet pineapple before being grilled.  Serve these tropical inspired kebabs with white rice and grilled vegetables.
