So now that the cat is out of the bag if you missed my Instagram post… I’m Pregnant!!! That’s right baby number 3 will be here in the Fall. Lately, I’ve been craving Asian flavors, so these Teriyaki Chicken Skewers hit the spot!! I made on the cast iron cause I love a good char and well it was too cold to fire up the grill. 

The marinade is simple, make it the night before and you will have dinner out in 20 minutes! I choose to use chicken thighs for these Teriyaki Chicken Skewers because I find them to be more flavorful and juicy than chicken breasts, and they tend to not dry out as fast!
