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.

Ingredients

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

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

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

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

Tip

Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I made this for a party months ago and everytime I get together with the people I made it for they request this chicken! It is different than any chicken recipe I have and it really gets a lot of compliments. I have baked it in the oven too and it turns out great.

This is an amazing recipe! While you prepare it you wouldn't believe it would turn out as good as it does. Nice and spicey and well worth any effort it takes cooking it. Definitely broil or grill it.

I used the advice of CARADMBGRL and made a version of cheesecake factory's thai chicken linguine. It was delicious. The whole family loved including my parents and my two year old. I dut down on the salsa and cayenne pepper a tad since my mom doesn't like spicy but otherwise went by her instructions. I chopped up the chicken and sauteed it in a skillet on the stove with about a TBSP. of veg. oil. We julienned some carrots tossed those in with the chicken also. While the chicken was cooking I made the sauce but left out the salt as she had recommended. When my chicken was done I just added the sauce to the chicken and warmed it and added some bean sprouts. We cooked some spinach fettucine and tossed that with it and it was done. An easy thirty minute meal that was healthy and not your typical dish. We will definitely make this again.

I must say when I mixed up this marinade I had serious doubts. It was very chunky. I was afaid that I was consigning my chicken to the trash. I was wrong. It was excellent. The only request I have gotten is that next time I should make the strips thinner. My 5 year old came back for more not that she's picky but she saw the marinade too. This one will be on the menu again!

These are SOOOO good! Made them for the first night of a vacation getaway for 3 families--everyone from age 6 to 60 loved them! I would have had seconds but they disappeared too quickly! I let marinate as long as possible--at least overnight. Make sure your bamboo skewers soak at least a couple of hours in cold water so they won't burn on the grill. This recipe is so good--quite an unusual bunch of ingredients but somehow it all comes together to produce an awesomely unique flavor!
