Makes one cup of Gluten Free Teriyaki Marinade.

Gluten Free Teriyaki Marinade is perfect for making Grilled Chicken Skewers (or Kabobs). Lean chicken and fresh vegetables compliment each other perfectly in this classic summer dish.

It is recommended that you wrap your Grilled Chicken Skewers with Gluten Free Teriyaki Marinade in foil before grilling. This helps them to cook evenly and distribute the flavors. If you prefer to have charred grill marks on your Grilled Chicken Skewers, skip the foil step and place them directly on the grill instead.

If you are using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them thoroughly in water before grilling to avoid burning on the grill. If you are short on time, or not needing quite as much of a presentation, try the packet grilling instructions instead.
