A quick summer meal is always welcome in my cookbook.
Last night I made my version of something I had seen on a Facebook post that included several versions of skewers for the grill.
After a long day it is all about what I have in the fridg and what is on the pantry shelf.
One of my favorites is Soyaki. This comes from Trader Joe's and I use it on all types of meats.
I had boneless, skinless chicken thighs on hand so I cut the meat into bitsize pieces and covered them with this glorious marinade. It is a complete, one and done sauce.
Then I heated the grill and threaded the marinaded chicken onto skewers. If you want you could add vegetables or pineapple but I was perfectly happy with just the chicken.
I sprinkled the skewers with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
Then we went to the grill. Grill the skewers until the poultry reaches 165 degrees internally. It took about 15 minutes on a medium hot grill.
While the chicken was grilling I sautéed fresh green beans with almonds and steamed couscous in chicken broth.
The results were fantastic.
This is going to be one of my favorite summertime suppers!!
