Chicken and Shrimp Satay Recipe

I lightened up a recipe that I found in a cookbook, and these grilled kabobs were the tasty result. The scrumptious peanut butter dipping sauce is always a hit. —Hannah Barringer of Loudon, Tennessee

"This dish is amazing! Instead of using kebobs, we just put it all in a skillet and cooked it that way. Really wonderful flavor!"
