  • 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup of soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated

  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush the chicken skewers with the teriyaki sauce and place them on the grill. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, basting with more sauce as needed, until the chicken is cooked through and has a nice char.
  4. Remove the skewers from the grill and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
  5. Serve the Teriyaki Chicken Skewers hot with steamed rice and your favorite vegetables.
