You will need a large foil pan for the grill. This is a fantastic summer grilled dish combining teriyaki chicken with sweet and sour onions and peppers.
The photo is not my own, but it looks just like what I serve.
All can be done on grill. Wait for the major raves. Sweet and sour and teriyaki, what could be better. I've used a picture from google of chicken fajitas because this is how I serve it. I usually put tortillas on the table with this and guests can make "fajitas."
Or you can serve with Baked potato/corn
