Paleo Chicken Yakitori aka Japanese Chicken Skewers (Whole30, Keto, AIP Option)

This low-carbohydrate, healthy old chicken satay is delicious and easy to make. This is the perfect recipe for Whole30 bread and summer ketones!

Chicken Yakitori

I have roasted today and I like it very much. Because of this, our food is fast, easy and delicious, and I have no husband or complaints at all. My latest innovation is this old chicken skewer, and recently I managed to take a photo of going to Japan last year. Not only do we have the most amazing raw sushi and fish, but we also have the most addictiveakiniku.

Recipe for Paleo Chicken Yakitori

Traditionally, Japanese yakitori recipes use sugar to give a smoky sauce. But in this low-carbohydrate and low-sugar version, I can use dates and coconut to make this natural sweet taste without you drinking sugar.

Not only can it ensure the health of chicken skewers, but it is not much different from traditional chicken recipes! Of course, if you don’t face the Whole30 challenge, honey can be used instead of jujube, it will be healthier than traditional jujube.
