Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken Skewers are the appetizer your guests will rave about. Make in the oven or grill outside!
I’m excited to share these pineapple chicken teriyaki skewers with you today! Imagine having a recipe for homemade teriyaki sauce that is similar to restaurant style teriyaki, at least similar to the teriyaki I’ve had.
You’ll be able to make this sauce any time you want.
Chicken and pineapple together are such a good pair, especially when covered in teriyaki sauce. You’re going to have some leftover sauce and it’s going to be so perfect over vegetables, beef or chicken and rice.
There is a difference in flavor if you use regular soy sauce versus low sodium soy sauce to make these skewers. This low sodium soy sauce version has been the closest to restaurant style sauce so I do suggest you use it if you can find it.
Tasting the sauce is important to be sure you enjoy the flavors before you sit down to eat, but keep in mind the ginger could possibly be more noticeable when you taste the sauce alone. It’s not as prominent when brushed over the chicken, but there is a big difference if it’s not there.
My other half and I hadn’t had much luck trying store-bought sauces. The brands we tried were just a little bit different than what we were hoping for.
One would be a little too sweet, another wouldn’t be sweet enough and so on.
Before today, I’ve been writing the recipe for these chicken teriyaki skewers on post-it notes, typing it out in text messages, and even once on an actual recipe card because friends ask for the recipe when we take this appetizer to potlucks.
I’m happy you’ll be able to try this recipe too!
If the weather is warm and it’s not raining or snowing, it would be delicious of you to fire up the outdoor grill to get these skewers going. Don’t forget to bake them for a few minutes until the chicken is cooked all the way through before you dig in.
