For the skewers:

  • 2 lbs chicken tenders cut into large chunks
  • 1 yellow pepper seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 red pepper seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1 red onion peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 whole, fresh pineapple cut into chunks

for the homemade teriyaki sauce:

  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds


  • Preheat outdoor grill, whether gas or charcoal.
  • Soak wooden skewers in water for a few hours prior, if using wooden skewers. *This is not a part of the recipe total time.*
  • Slide chicken, peppers, onion and pineapple onto the skewers, alternating as you go. Set aside.
  • For the homemade teriyaki sauce, measure all ingredients into a small pot. Whisk together and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to simmer gently until sauce has thickened slightly. Remove from heat.
  • Place skewers onto hot grill and baste with sauce. Continue cooking and basting as you go until chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • Serve skewers over brown rice.
  • **If you want to use the remaining teriyaki sauce over the cooked skewers, place pot back on the heat and bring back up to a bubble to kill any potential germs from basting raw chicken.
