For kids nothing is more fun than food on a stick! This recipe is great as an appetizer or as a main dish. I like to serve it with brown rice and salad. Enjoy!
Teriyaki Sesame Chicken Skewers
30 (8-inch) bamboo skewers
15 ounces teriyaki sauce
6 tablespoons sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon sugar
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs and/or breasts
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 1 hour to keep from burning later.
2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in container large enough to hold all of the chicken. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips and submerge them in the marinade, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
4. Thread 1 chicken strip on each skewer towards end of the stick, and line up on a sheet pan. Place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until fully cooked through. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
