Peanut Butter Chicken Skewers

Simply Modern Mom is hosting an overused recipe swap. She's attempting to collect 365 overused recipes from people all over the world. What's the recipe your family makes the most? For us, it's peanut butter chicken skewers. In the summer we make them on the grill, and during the winter we use our Pampered Chef grill pan, but you could also make them in a skillet. Here's the recipe, which we found on


1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (or hot sauce- add more for a kick!)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

In a saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until smooth. Reserve half of sauce. Slice chicken lengthwise into 1-in. strips; thread onto skewers (if using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes). Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 2 minutes; turn and brush with peanut butter sauce. Continue turning and basting for 4-6 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Serve with reserved sauce.

Thanks for the recipe - I made this tonight along with mashed potatoes with shallots and string beans and my husband and I both thought it was great. It's pouring outside, so I used a grill pan, but I bet it's even better on the real grill. Will definitely make again - now that we've given it a trial run I'll make it for the kids too (minus the red pepper)!
