Teriyaki Chicken Skewers


These Teriyaki Chicken Skewers are based off the authentic way to make teriyaki sauce only without any refined sugar. I use maple syrup here as a natural sweetener and I think you’re going to love how tasty the teriyaki sauce is! You can also use you favorite brand of teriyaki sauce here to speed things up as well. This easy to make dinner is a crowd pleaser that’s gluten free and dairy free as well.


Units Scale

1 lb chicken breasts (about 2)

1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, for marinade

1/4 cup teriyaki sauce for brushing while grilling

Homemade Teriyaki Sauce:

1 Tablespoon ginger, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup soy sauce, coconut aminos, or tamari

1/4 cup maple syrup, Grade A

1/4 cup mirin


Cut the chicken breasts into thin strips. Place in a bowl and pour the teriyaki sauce over the top. Stir to coat and refrigerate overnight.

Place 15 wooden skewers in a container and cover with water to soak overnight (this helps to prevent burning).

Preheat the grill over high heat. Thread the chicken strips onto the skewers. Place on then grill and immediately lower the temperature to medium. Grill for 3-5 minutes until chicken easily lifts from the grill.

Turn the chicken and brush with the remaining 1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce. Grill for an additional 3-5 minutes until the skewers are totally cooked.

Serve immediately with the remaining teriyaki sauce.


The homemade teriyaki sauce makes about 2/3 cups.
