Teriyaki Chicken Skewers and Livart Orange BBQ Grill Giveaway

Teriyaki Chicken Skewers

Teriyaki Chicken on a skewer… is there anyone who would not take a bite?

I posted a teriyaki chicken recipe using pineapple juice a few years ago and got a great feedback from my readers. This time, I used the same recipe (plus one more ingredient to make a glaze) and adapted it for skewers.

Skewers are great to cook on a grill. However, not everyone has the access to an outdoor grill. Here I used a indoor tabletop grill to cook my skewers. It is called Orange Barbecue Grill from Livart.

Livart Orange BBQ Grill

Livart Orange BBQ Grill

It has a detachable stainless steel grate that you can adjust to change its distance from the heat source, and a bottom tray to collect the fat drippings. The manual recommends to add water on the tray when you are grilling so that it can keep the meat moist and prevent the drippings from burning, which reduces the smoke while grilling. You don’t want smoke when you are grilling indoors.

It is very easy to use and the clean up was a breeze. I can see that this grill can be used to cook Korean beef, pork belly, fish, and etc. I only wish it was a tad bigger, but this size would be good enough to cook for 2-4 people depending on what you are cooking.

I used to hate avocados. I didn't understand why some people were crazy about them. I almost threw up when I first tasted them. They were mushy and couldn't stand the raw flavor.  The same goes to the cilantro as well. The fragrance was too strong, that I felt like it overpowered the entire ...
