The chicken is marinated in a soy sauce, brown sugar and peanut butter (just to name a few of the ingredients), then grilled or broiled. Delicious.

  • 1 cup crunchy peanut butter

  • cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • ¾ cup salsa

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic

  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped

  • 3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into strips

  • 2 green bell peppers, seeded and cubed


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine crunchy peanut butter, cilantro, salsa, brown sugar, soy sauce, salt, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic and green onions; mix well. Add chicken to the marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

  2. While the chicken is marinating, soak bamboo skewers in water for one hour so they will not burn on the grill.

  3. Preheat the barbeque to a high heat. Or preheat your oven to broil.

  4. Thread chicken onto skewers like a snake, and in between each loop add a cube of bell pepper.

  5. Grill skewers, turning once, over charcoal for 4 to 6 minutes; or broil, until just browned and cooked through.
