In just 20 minutes you can have a gourmet Asian dinner ready for your family. Marinade the chicken in a sweet ginger flavored marinade before grilling. We used tenderloins for this recipe for faster prep time. We grilled the chicken and shrimp on their own skewers so that each would cook more evenly. Pair this dish with snow peas or a vegetable stir-fry.
