    Soak bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning. In medium bowl, mix chicken and 1/4 cup teriyaki marinade. Cover; refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes to marinate.

    Meanwhile, heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In small bowl, stir all sauce ingredients until blended; set aside.

  • Rich in protein and heart-healthy fat, a little bit of peanut butter goes a long way. Just a tablespoon of this nutty spread can help you feel full, which can keep you from overindulging on other foods.
