Ingredients

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon each ground coriander, ground turmeric and ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon coconut extract
  • PEANUT BUTTER SAUCE:
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot

Directions

  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; cut lengthwise into 1-in.-wide strips. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the milk, garlic, brown sugar, seasonings and extract. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the sauce ingredients until blended. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Drain and discard marinade. Thread two chicken strips onto each metal or soaked wooden skewer.
