Gluten Free Sticky-Sweet Grilled Chicken Skewers and Honey Hoisin Butter Corn on the Cob

Honey Hoisin Grilled Corn & Sticky-Sweet Grilled Chicken Skewers

So I’m brainstorming recipe ideas the other day and a phrase from the Lowe’s commercial keeps running through my head: “outside is open” it says. Hmm … good point. Outside is open and it’s mighty beautiful. In fact, my backyard is looking rather inviting, if I do say so myself. The temperatures here in Florida are piping hot but the pool is glistening, so it’s a nice balance out there. I thought what better way to take advantage of the bright, sunny days than with a backyard barbecue.

Instead of the classic barbecue, I decided to put a twist on some backyard faves – chicken and corn on the cob.

Made with Kikkoman gluten-free hoisin, gluten-free soy sauce, butter, honey, and few extras, the corn is absolutely amazing and so flavorful. What’s really fun is you can braid the corn husks for a cool presentation. Sprinkle the corn with furikake (a Japanese seasoning made from dried fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, and salt) or sesame seeds and some cilantro and you have a real treat!

The chicken skewers are made with Kikkoman teriyaki marinade, apricot preserves, and a few additional ingredients to create a knock-your-socks off skewer that you’ll want to make again and again!
