Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Skewers with Miso Ranch

Rating: 5 stars 17
If 'teri' means 'shine,' and 'yaki' refers to grilling, then these chicken skewers are the poster children for teriyaki. Marinated in soy sauce, sake, and mirin, the chicken is grilled to sweet, smoky perfection and dipped in a refreshing, herby miso 'ranch' sauce that'll send your summer cookout guests into a frenzy. The only bottles not invited to this party are bottled teriyaki sauces! Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Rating: 4.5 stars 3092
Honey chicken kabobs with veggies. You can marinate overnight and make these kabobs for an outdoor barbecue as a tasty alternative to the usual barbecue fare! Fresh mushrooms and cherry tomatoes can also be used. (This can also be done in the broiler.)

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

I invented this recipe for a quick dinner. I only marinated the chicken for one hour, but I am sure if you marinate longer, it would taste even better.

Slayer's Sweet, Tangy, and Spicy Kabobs

Rating: 4.5 stars 37
I acquired both my nickname and the idea for this recipe while working at an awful franchised restaurant in my college years. These are great for Summertime cookouts at tailgate partys or just for get-togethers. The sauce is fairly versatile and can be used for an array of different meats and applications (I originally used the sauce for chicken wings). For people such as myself who have acid reflux I have indicated some ingredients that can be left out in order to help curb the heartburn.

Best Ever Kabob Marinade

This is perfect for kabobs! We generally use chicken or pork and it is great with onions, zucchini, and portobello mushrooms! You'll wow your crowd with this one! This is enough marinade for 2 pounds of meat and the veggies.

Reshmi Kebab (Silken Kebabs)

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
This is a traditional Muglai dish prepared in India. It gets its name from the succulence of the meat after prolonged marinating and light braising. Traditionally, chicken, beef or lamb meat is used, but prawns or scallops are good substitutes too for this smooth as silk kebabs. Serve with chatnis (dips made from coconut, cilantro and mint, usually found in Indian grocery stores) or tomato sauce.
