Gluten-free chicken teriyaki skewers are made with a delectable homemade sauce that you’ll make again and again.
Immediately, I thought we would end up having to take our kids to get something else to eat because they are so picky. I couldn’t imagine that they would eat that because I had tried and failed many times before.
Then, my son, who was sitting by his grandparents, runs up to me and ask if I had tried the chicken. I told him I was getting to it, but he then proceeds to say that it was so good he had already had four chicken skewers. I was SHOCKED! Then, I look next to me at my daughter, who was eating broccoli so fast she couldn’t get enough.
Who were these kids? Surely not mine!
Ever since the wedding, my son has been begging me to make that chicken again. I decided I would give it a try, but this time I planned to grill it and then pair it with rice and broccoli.
Just like before, my daughter was downing the broccoli and my son was begging for more chicken.
What type of chicken should you use for Gluten-Free Teriyaki Chicken Skewers?
It’s best to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. The chicken breast dries out and the fat from the chicken thighs gives the chicken a more juicy flavor.
How do you make the teriyaki sauce gluten-free?
Making gluten-free teriyaki sauce is really easy, it’s simply a matter of using a gluten-free soy sauce. We like to use Kikkoman Gluten-Free Soy Sauce.
