Sesame Teriyaki Skewers (Chicken on a Stick)

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Big Mike2

Great for a low-carb snack. I make this up fairly regularly, and just keep it in the fridge for when I need something, but it's just not meal time yet. I left the Bamboo skewers out of the recipe list, and the prep time includes 1 hour of marinading...

My 6 yr old loves the chicken on a stick at one of our local Chinese restaurants, so I was trying to find a recipe similar to it. This wasn't it, but it was still pretty good...she liked it, ate 3 sticks!! It was really easy to do too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 1 hour to keep from burning later.
  2. Mix all marinade ingredients together in a non-reactive container large enough to hold all of the chicken.
  3. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch strips and submerge them in the marinade, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Thread 1 chicken strip on each skewer towards end of the stick, and line up on a sheet pan.
  6. Place in oven and bake for about 30 minutes, or until fully cooked through.
  7. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.
