This guest article is by my friend and Marin mom Nancy Grossi, author of the award-winning blog The Wife of a Dairyman. Nancy started her blog at the beginning of 2010, and offers a look into life on one of Marin's many dairy farms. One of her loves is cooking, and her recipe for healthy grilled teriyaki chicken skewers is perfect for a Memorial Day BBQ. Thanks, Nancy!
Can you believe I've never tried grilling skewers? I was in the mood for something light, fresh and easy. Plus I just bought 20 pounds of chicken and wanted to use some of it.
I used skinless chicken breast and boneless, skinless thighs. Red onion, pineapple, zucchini, summer squash and red bell pepper for the veggies. I cut everything into chunks and skewered them. I marinated the skewers in a Pyrex for a few hours with my favorite marinade Soy Vay Teriyaki. Oh, and before skewering, I soaked the wooden skewers in water for a while so they wouldn't burn (hopefully).
