The sun is shining and it’s getting warmer, but the weather isn’t the only thing that’s heating up. Grilling season has arrived!
It’s a tasty time of year and we’ve got a show stopper of a recipe that friends and family will ask for again and again all summer long. Teriyaki chicken egg roll skewers!
This isn’t your typical skewer, friends. From white meat chicken to Van’s Kitchen egg rolls which are loaded with veggies, add bell peppers, onions and sweet pineapple, and you’ve got an entire Asian meal on a stick!
Our Teriyaki chicken egg roll skewers are perfect for outdoor gatherings, pool parties, or family dinners on the patio.
Cooking egg rolls on the grill may seem odd, but they actually cook quite well on a skewer nestled in between vegetables and pieces of chicken. In fact, egg rolls crisp to perfection on an open flame!
Teriyaki sauce mixed with the juice of fresh grilled pineapple makes a mouthwatering glaze that truly complements that flavor and Asian spices of our egg rolls.
If summertime could cook, it’d make our Teriyaki chicken egg roll skewers. They’re vibrant, fun to assemble, and easy to cook!
