Chicken Sate' with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce


6 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2 lbs) trimmed
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro
3 Tablespoons Ketchup
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Tabasco
4 scallions, Sliced thin
1 1/2 cups Spicy Peanut dipping sauce


Freeze chicken for 30 minutes
Slice chickent diagonally into 1/4- inch thick strips. Combine the soy sauce, vegetable oil,brown sugar, cilantro, ketchup, garlic, Tabasco, and Scallions and pour over chicken. Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes but not longer than 1 hour.
Adjust an oven rack 6 -inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler. Line the broiler pan bottom with foil and cover the slotted broiler -pan top, and cover the skewer endes with foil. (This prevents them from burning) Broil until fully cooked, about 8 minutes, flippin ghte skewers over halfway though. Serve

** I had to cook mine for about 15 minutes because they were not done but my oven isn't the greatest.
* this also works great with Flank steak. But you have to cut it across the grain


Spicy Peanut dipping sauce

1/2 cups peanut butter, creamy or chunky
1/4 cup hot water
3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar
1 Tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
2 Scallions, sliced thin
1 1/2 teaspoons Tabasco
1 garlic clove, minced

Whisk the peanut butter and hot water together in a medium bowl. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Transfer to serving bowl. This can be made up to 2 days ahead and kept in the refrgerated.

The sauce only makes about 1 1/2 cups so you need to double it to have enough for the chicken and the sauce.
