Teriyaki comes from two Japanese words: teri, meaning shine, gloss, or luster, and yaki, to broil, sear, or grill. It has come to refer to a dish made with a sauce that includes sweet and umami-rich ingredients (usually soy sauce or tamari plus honey or mirin, a sweet rice wine), which becomes a shiny glaze (the teri) when cooked (yaki). The best teriyaki glazes balance the sweetness with a bright acid like the rice vinegar we use here.
Prepare a medium-hot fire in a grill. Thread the chicken and scallions onto the skewers. Set the skewers on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and the chicken is cooked through, 5 to 7 minutes.
