Gluten-Free Sticky-Sweet Grilled Chicken Skewers


Yield: 8 Servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Total Time: 27 minutes

¾ cup Kikkoman® Gluten-Free Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
⅓ cup apricot preserves
¼ cup cilantro leaves and stems, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon Kikkoman® Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded, deveined, and minced
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs or breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
Fresh cilantro leaves and grated lime zest, for garnish
8 Skewers


  1. Stir together the teriyaki sauce, preserves, ¼ cup cilantro leaves, lime juice, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and jalapeno in a medium bowl. Reserve 1/3 cup mixture and store covered in the refrigerator.
  2. Place chicken and remaining Sticky-Sweet Marinade in a large resealable bag and seal well; refrigerate for 2 hours (or up to 24 hours).
  3. Allow reserved marinade to come to room temperature. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove chicken from bag and discard bag and marinade. Thread chicken onto skewers. Cook on a well-oiled grill over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through. Remove from grill to a platter and drizzle with reserved marinade. Garnish with cilantro and lime zest, if desired.
