A neighbor gave me this recipe, and at first I was skeptical to see peanut butter as an ingredient. But folks can't resist these specially seasoned skewers.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter

  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves

Directions

  • 1. In a blender, combine the first nine ingredients Cover and blend until smooth, adding a few drops of water if mixture is too thick.
  • 2. Pour into a large resealable plastic bag. Cut chicken into 1-in.-wide strips; add to bag. Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
