All in one bag
With a flavorful sauce included, these delicious grilled skewers will be a big hit at your summer party.
For vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, or anyone
So, what are all these labels that people use to describe how they eat?
Vegans are people who avoid all animal derived foods, such as any meats like beef or chicken. They also avoid dairy like milk and cheese. Eggs are not eaten by vegans. And, they also typically avoid things that animals made, like honey, as well.
Vegetarians avoid meat, but may include eggs, diary, and honey, as the animal did not die in producing the food.
Flexitarians may include meat, fish, eggs and dairy in their diet. I guess this label puts me in the flexitarian category, as I eat fish sometimes.
And, then there are those people who just want to eat a little healthier and may add more plant-based proteins to their diet in order to do so.
Meatless Monday is attempting to help everyone, vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, and everyone else cut some of the meat from their diet.
Regardless of your reason for wanting to avoid meats, these gardein products are delicious, and a great way to get a fun and delicious dinner on the table.
With grilling season here I’m sharing these fun Grilled Teriyaki Chick’n Skewers!
Maybe you host the annual pool party, block party, or summer celebration. Or you aren’t sure what to serve for your veggie-loving guests. Maybe you are trying to cut meat yourself. Or, maybe you’re looking for a Meatless Monday dinner. And, you’re seeking to move beyond the burger. These Grilled Teriyaki Chick’n Skewers will totally fit into your busy lifestyle.
Move beyond tofu and burgers
When I told the cashier at my grocery store that I was making Grilled Teriyaki Chick’n Skewers with vegetarian chicken her first question was, “like tofu?”.
Well, it’s more than just soy. It’s Kosher, Complete plant-based protein with no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives. And, I love that the products come in bags rather than boxes; it makes them so easy to store n the freezer! They also have 4 gluten-free items. And, it’s delicious!
I really love Gardein all-vegan products. And I use them all the time. And, no they aren’t paying me for this.
They have a texture like meat and a great taste. My meat-loving husband even prefers Gardein over some meats! That’s really saying a lot!

Grilled Teriyaki Chick’n Skewers
- 10.5 ounce Gardein Teriyaki Chick’n Strips
- 1-2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Fresh pineapple cut into chunks
- Red bell pepper cut into 1-inch pieces
- Red onions cut into 1-inch pieces
- chopped green onions for garnish if desired
- If you’re using wooden skewers, submerge them in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes so that they don’t burn on the grill.
- Defrost the chick’n by placing the strips in a small microwaveable bowl, and drizzle with water and oil. Cover the bowl with a small plate, and microwave in 30-second increments, stirring after each time, until the chick’n is just defrosted but not hot (microwave times will vary based on the power of the microwave).
- Place the sauce packet in a small bowl of hot water for 3 minutes to defrost.
- Thread the defrosted chick’n, pineapple, red pepper, and red onion on the skewers, alternating the chick’n and the veggies. Brush the defrosted teriyaki sauce over the chick’n pieces (you’ll brush more on while grilling so you don’t have to use it all right now).
- Grill on a medium-hot grill for 6-8 minutes on each side, or until nice char marks develop. Brush on extra teriyaki sauce during grilling.
- Sprinkle with chopped green onions for serving if desired.
