Oriental Chicken Kabobs

One word. AMAZING!! Seriously these are so good!! The sauce to dip them in is delish!! I served these with homemade fried rice. Great family meal!

1/2 c. creamy peanut butter

1/2 c. water

1/4 c. soy sauce

4 cloves garlic, pressed

3 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 Tbsp. firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 tsp. ground ginger

1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (this adds "zing" but is far from hot)

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 in. wide strips

metal, or wooden skewers (about 8 will work)

1-Combine peanut butter, water, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, brown sugar, ginger, and red pepper flakes in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat for one minute or until smooth; let cool. Remove garlic from sauce and set aside

2-Take you chicken strips and thread onto your skewers

3-Cook kabobs on the grill for about 6-8 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, turning once. Be sure to baste your meat once or twice while cooking.

4-Serve with reserved sauce for dipping over fried rice.

*Tip: If you are using wooden skewers be sure to soak them in water for at least 20 to keep them from burning on the grill)

*If you would like, you can always grill veggies on skewers to serve with this as well. We use green and red bell peppers, onion wedges, and pineapple. Cook until crisp tender on the grill. DON'T BURN!! Use the upper rack!
