Lime-Ginger Chicken Kabobs with Peanut Sauce
Ingredients2 h 30 m servings 645
- Pat chicken thighs dry with a paper towel, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks, and sprinkle with salt.
- Stir mayonnaise, lime zest, ginger, salt, and pepper for the marinade in a bowl until smooth. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag, add marinade, seal, and massage the bag until all the chicken pieces are coated. Place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight.
- Soak 6-inch wooden skewers in a bowl of water for at least 30 minutes.
- Whisk peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, ginger, and sambal oelek together in a bowl. Slowly whisk in small amounts of warm water until dipping sauce reaches the desired consistency; set aside.
- Heat the grill to medium-high and oil the grate.
- Remove chicken from the marinade and thread chicken onto the skewers; discard marinade.
- Place skewers on the hot grill and cook until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, 10 to 12 minutes, lowering the heat if chicken is browning too fast. Turn skewers as often as necessary for even browning, and to keep the chicken from burning.
- Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve with fresh lime wedges and peanut sauce for dipping.
- Cook's Note:
- If you have any of the peanut sauce left over, it's a good dressing for an Asian noodle salad.

Did not add sambalic hot sauce, not into spicy hot. Sauce was still very good!
Loved it! Flavors were delicious with a different twist on chicken!!
I let the chicken marinate overnight..it was perfect. I purchased the store brand of peanut sauce...plus I took advice from a previous review and made the dill cucumber salad as a compliment
Made no changes to the marinade. It was delicious served with coconut rice and green beans. Made the peanut sauce but did not like the flavor so I didn't serve it.
