Hibachi Chicken Skewers & Veggies (Whole30, Keto, Paleo)

May 22, 2019 | Author: Ashley McCrary
Hibachi Chicken Skewers

I woke up the other night at 3 a.m. and jumped out of bed. I raced to my notebook and began to jot down the most delicious recipe that I had just dreamed about. Little did I know, that my new Hibachi Chicken Skewers and Veggies would turn out to be my new favorite recipe on my blog. It’s a real show stopper and will make you question how the heck is it considered Whole30, Paleo and Keto.

Hibachi Chicken Skewers and veggies

I have always been a big fan of going to the Hibachi grill. I love the food being cooked in front of me along with the amazing flavors included. We recently went to our favorite Hibachi Grill on Easter and I guess my mind couldn’t stop thinking about it. A couple of weeks later I went to bed with a blank mind and woke up at 3 a.m. with the most vivid picture in my mind of the recipe I wanted to create in honor of my love for the Hibachi grill.

Hibachi Chicken Skewers and veggies

In the beginning stages of recipe development for this recipe, I thought there was no way I would be able to create my favorite restaurant meal in a healthy way. Well, guess what? I was wrong! My Hibachi Chicken Skewers and Veggies taste just like they came straight from the restaurant’s grill. Furthermore, my husband threw a fit and declared that it was the most amazing recipe I have created thus far. It made me blush a little. 😉

How long does the Bang Bang Sauce last in the fridge?

It’s very important to remember that any recipe that is made with a homemade mayo base such as this sauce, should only stay in the fridge for 5-7 days. Some people go by the shelf life of the egg that is used, but I always stay on the safe side and never go past a week. To be honest though, my sauce is usually gone within a few days because it is so yummy. Always make sure to sell your jars in an airtight jar. I love storing all of my sauces in a Weck Jar.

Can these Hibachi Chicken Skewers serve as a good meal prep option?

Absolutely! I will store the chicken and veggies together in an air tight container and add the sauce in a small separate container. Just simply heat and serve and not only is it easy, but it’s super delicious for a weekday lunch.

          I am happy to hear you love this recipe. It is one of my favorite sauces. I will put it on literally everything!

  3. Sydney Flaig says:

    I just cooked this for dinner last night and it was AMAZING! thank you for sharing. I want to put that sauce on everything!

  4. Kate H says:

    I began making this thinking it was just another chicken and veggies recipe but oh my I should have known better. Ashley does not disappoint or post anything less than amazing. This was beyond delicious and is now in my regular rotation. Take the time to make the bang bang sauce (for me this meant making home made sriracha). You will be glad you did!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you for such a nice comment. I am so thrilled you enjoyed this recipe!

  5. Shelley says:

    This is my favorite recipe of hers. I could eat it every day.

  6. Shelley says:

    This is my favorite recipe I’ve tried if hers so far, I could eat it every day.

  7. Emily says:

    I love hibachi! Glad for a good quality recipe for at home.

  8. Jennifer Parsons says:

    Absolutely LOVE this recipe! I recently switched up the chicken and did shrimp instead, SO GOOD! The sauce is better than the “shrimp sauce” you get in a restaurant. We have this at least once every other week!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you Jennifer!

  9. Lindsey says:

    I am making a big statement here… out of all the recipes I have tried from Healthy Little Peach, I believe this one is my favorite. It so dang good! Do not skip out of the bang bang sauce because it really ties the dish all together! I have made minor changes to this dish for convenience and it is still amazing. I have never “skewered” my chicken just to save time. I typically bake my chicken tenderloins in the oven and then right before serving, throw them in with the pan with the veggies and toss. I serve mine over cauliflower rice and rice for the husband. This recipe allows for easy adaptions so that everyone is happy! As a child, it was always a treat going to a hibachi steakhouse where they cooked in front of you. I have fond memories of trying to catch shrimp in my mouth. Hands down, this recipe is just as good as you can get in the restaurant for more than half the price. Such a good recipe and serves nicely as leftovers.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      I am so happy to hear this. Thank you for taking the time to leave a sweet comment. It means a lot!

  10. Abby Black says:

  11. Amy says:

    I LOVE this recipe! I am generally not a huge fan of veggies, but I find myself now just making these veggies to go with other meals too. I would take this chicken and veggies over dining out at a Hibachi restaurant any day.

  12. Camie says:

    I made this last night and it was sooo good. So easy to make. The bang bang sauce was amazing! My husband loved it and asked if we can add it to our weekly routine!

  19. Kristen says:

    Getting my husband to get on board for the whole 30 was a little tough until I found Ashley!! He loves everything from you. After his first bite he will always ask “is this the peach lady?” HAHA. He loves Hibachi restaurants so when I so this, I knew I have to make it. Now the BANG BANG sauce is always in our fridge. If we begin to run out he will have a little panic and let me know right away that we need to make more.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Well this absolutely has made my day…….the peach lady is happy;-) thanks Kristen

  20. Amanda Robinson says:

    Love this recipe! I’m not kitchen savvy enough to get the sticks to work, so I just cooked the chicken in the skillet. The sauce is my favorite part & pairs really well with everything!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:


  21. Stacy says:

    This is my absolute favorite Whole30 recipe. The sauce is perfection and I eat it on every vegetable I can.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thank you!

  26. Sarah says:

    This is one of our favorite summer recipes! We make it almost every week in the summer months. Super easy to cook and very little cleanup!

  27. Katey Easley says:

    I made this tonight. I dont like mayo but this sauce is everything. It was so good. I didn’t do skewers I just cubed chicken breasts and I left out the mushrooms. Definitely adding to the rotation! Quick and easy!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      So happy to hear this! Thank you for trying

  28. Jamie says:

    I am not on Whole 30 or doing Keto, I just wanted some healthier recipes for my family. This was a hit and so has everything else I have made from your site! I bought your cookbook too 🙂

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      Thanks so much Jamie. You have made my day. It’s so uplifting to work to help others make healthier choices but even more so when followers such as you make such sweet comments for my eyes to read. Have a blessed weekend.

  29. Emily says:

    Made this tonight, but cubes the chicken instead of placing them on skewers. OMG. Delicious! I’m so glad my husband decided on something else so I don’t have to share. This will be on our regular menu!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      🙂 Emily……..thrilled you loved this recipe. Enjoy!!!!

  30. Cristina says:

    This was a fantastic meal! Thank you for sharing this. I will be making this again.

      Thank you!

  31. Bethany says:

    Holy cow!! Mac does it again! This recipe is soooo good y’all! Totally conquers the hibachi craving and way healthier!

  32. Lori Joyce says:

    Wow! Not only do Ashley’s recipes have an incredible, scrumptious range of flavors, they look beautiful and are fun to make. I so enjoyed the process of making the Hibachi Chicken Skewers and my family LOVED the flavor. The Big Bang sauce truly makes you sit back in your chair and go, “Wow, that is great!” It is like you worked a whole day in the kitchen to create a complex range of flavors, and you don’t! I’ve been using a cast iron skillet for the past few Healthy Little Peach recipes. Ashley, I love that you shared how you woke up early and had this recipe on your mind so jumped out of bed to get it written down. Thank you!

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is so nice. Thank you for this lovely comment!

  33. Caitlin says:

      So happy to hear. Thank you

  34. Carrie Allton says:

    Oh my this was fantastic! My college kiddo was home for the weekend so I doubled it but I’m not sure I’ll have any left for lunch. Served it with coconut rice. Will definitely make again and maybe my boy will even take the recipe back to his apartment.

    1. Ashley McCrary says:

      This is so awesome to hear. Thank you

  37. Megan feldman says:

    All I can say is WOW. This made my hibachi dreams come true with zero guilt 😍 the sauce was the best part!

  38. Mandy says:

We have lived all of Yiur recipes that we have tried! Thank you for taking time to make amazing things for us to have healthier meals!

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
