Chicken Skewer Appetizer with Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce

Chicken's Italian Style with an Asian Flair~



2 boneless skinless chicken breasts sliced in chunks or strips or pork tenderloin cut into chunks is awesome with this sauce too!
1 teaspoon  olive oil or sesame oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 garlic clove minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes for some heat
salt and pepper
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons rice vinegar or balsamic vinegar
canola oil for frying
Toss chicken in sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. Season with salt and pepper. Thread skewers with chicken strips or chunks.
Make dipping sauce.
Whisk in a small bowl, peanut butter, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper flakes add 2 or 3 tablespoons of water.
Heat your grill or  grilling pan on high. Cook chicken until cooked through completely. Serve with dipping sauce.

We eat tons of chicken. I have to try this, never made a peanut butter sauce but Red and I were just talking about it. Thanks for the inspiration!

I didn't have great success with my peanut sauce recipe. I am definitely going to give yours a shot!

That chicken looks delicious. I can never convince my family that peanut butter sauces and chicken were made for each other. In their minds peanut butter belongs in sandwiches and desserts. Maybe this recipe would convince them!
