These delicious chicken skewers are brushed with a delightful peanut butter and ginger-lime sauce, then grilled to tender perfection. Billie Moss from Walnut Creek, California submitted the recipe.


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower kernels


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients. Cook and stir over medium-high heat for 3 minutes or until smooth. Remove from the heat; set aside 2 tablespoons sauce for serving.
  2. Slice chicken lengthwise into 1-in. strips; thread onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. Grill, uncovered, over medium-high heat or broil 6 in. from the heat for 2 minutes; turn and brush with remaining sauce. Continue turning and basting for 4-6 minutes or until no longer pink.
  3. Place cabbage on a serving plate; top with skewers. Sprinkle with celery and sunflower kernels. Serve with reserved sauce.
