“Once the weather gets warm, isn’t everyone looking for quick and easy meals?” said Shawn Gavin, CEO and founder of Slofoodgroup.
“That’s why we came up with these grilled teriyaki chicken and pineapple skewers. They’re easy to assemble and cook, and they pack a ton of flavor,” he says, noting that to save even more time cooking, you can use store-bought teriyaki sauce instead of making your own. “Though the skewers are enough for a full meal, we suggest pairing them with pita bread or rice,” he added.
