These savory sweet chicken kabobs are unbelievably easy to make and they’re so perfect for game day!
I’m trying to grasp that Christmas is in 4 days and I still haven’t finished Christmas shopping yet. I’m about 90% done but I still need to make a trip to the mall since this is the one thing left that I can’t actually purchase on Amazon. I guess this is what I get for procrastinating! But let’s talk about something more pleasant. Something completely un-Christmas related, like these chicken teriyaki kabobs.
Being a huge lover of anything teriyaki-related, I knew these would be a big hit in our house. With a simple marinade with pantry ingredients, these kabobs come together so easily. And once marinated, you can just pop these on the grill for about 5 minutes and that’s it! Seriously, how easy is that?
These would be so perfect for game day or as a quick and easy meal for those busy weeknights. You can serve as is or alongside some rice. Either way, everyone will be sure to gobble these up instantly!
