I made these the other night and I wasn’t really expecting them to be that great. I don’t usually like any kind of skewered meat. But this was really pretty good. The combined flavors of the chicken and the peanut sauce was awesome. I served them with white rice and steamed peas.
The Peanut Sauce:
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Mix in water, peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar. Cook and stir until well blended. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons tomato sauce
- 1 tablespoon peanut oil
- 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
- 1 pinch ground cumin
- 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast cutlets
In a bowl, mix soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, black pepper, and cumin. Place chicken into the mixture, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 – 30 minutes.
Thread chicken onto skewers. Grill skewers about 5 minutes per side, until chicken juices run clear. Serve with peanut sauce.
