Ingredients

  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter

  • ½ cup water

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • ¾ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

  • 2 cups shredded red cabbage

  • 1 bunch Sliced green onion tops

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, combine the first eight ingredients; cook and stir over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until smooth. Reserve half of sauce. Slice chicken lengthwise into 1-in. strips; thread onto skewers (if using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes). Grill, uncovered, over medium-hot heat for 2 minutes; turn and brush with peanut butter sauce. Continue turning and basting for 4-6 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Place cabbage on a serving plate; top with chicken. Sprinkle with onion tops. Serve with reserved sauce.
