In celebration of summer grilling season, cook up these tasty chicken skewers complete with tangy teriyaki and sweet pineapple flavors.
"Once the weather gets warm, isn't everyone looking for quick and easy meals?" said Shawn Gavin, CEO and founder of Slofoodgroup in Sarasota, Florida.
"That's why we came up with these grilled teriyaki chicken and pineapple skewers. They're easy to assemble and cook, and they pack a ton of flavor," he says, noting that to save even more time cooking, you can use store-bought teriyaki sauce instead of making your own.
