Teriyaki Chicken Kebabs

Twitter knows everything. It even knows what you’re having for dinner tonight. (Well, only if you ask.)

It really does. It’s never let me down.

A recent tweet of mine: “Looking for a dinner idea for tonight that involves chicken and a grill…anyone?”

And I liked Carrie’s idea best. Teriyaki Chicken Kebabs it is!

Would someone please tell me how to spell KEBABS?!? Kabobs? Kebobs? Kababs?

(Perhaps it depends on what part of the country you’re in and the accent of your voice.)

Teriyaki Chicken Kebabs

Yield – 4 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes (+1 hour marinade time)

Cooking Time – 15 minutes


  • 2 chicken breasts ($1.75)
  • 1/2 red pepper, seeded ($.50)
  • 1/2 orange pepper, seeded ($.50)
  • 1 yellow onion ($.30)
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce ($.50)
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce ($.15)
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar ($.10)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup brown rice ($.40)
  • 1 bag frozen green beans ($.88)


(WARNING: I thought I’d change up my cooking routine and took all the ingredients outside to prepare the kebabs. Since I don’t have a countertop outside, the ground would have to do.)

  • Cut the peppers, onions and dice the chicken into bite size pieces.
  • Thread it all onto kebab skewers.

(If your little people are around, turn it into a “patterns lesson”…talk through it as you add things to the skewers and ask them what comes next in the pattern.)

  • Add the teriyaki, soy, oil and some salt and pepper to the marinating dish.
  • Let the kid with the really dirty and sandy feet whisk the marinade.

  • Place the kebabs in the marinade for about an hour. Flip after 30 minutes or so, to all the marinade to cover the chicken.
  • Grill the Kebabs until chicken has cooked through…about 4 minutes on each side. Time will vary depending on heat of the grill and thickness of the chicken pieces.
  • Prepare the brown rice and green beans as directed on package.
  • Serve Teriyaki Chicken Kabobs Kababs Kebabs with Brown Rice and Green Beans.
