Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for brushing the grill grates
  • 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Roughly chopped fresh cilantro, for garnish
  • Thinly sliced Fresno chile, for garnish (optional)
  • For serving: Steamed white rice and lime wedges
  • [Special equipment:] 4 12-inch wooden skewers
Directions
  • Preheat the grill to medium. Soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.

  • Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat, add the garlic and cook, stirring, until just golden, about 1 minute. Add the peanut butter, ketchup, soy sauce and 1/2 cup water and stir until well blended. Remove from the heat, stir in the lime juice and set aside.

  • Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper and thread onto the skewers. Lightly oil the grill grates. Grill the chicken, flipping often, until cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Drizzle some of the sauce over the chicken and scatter with cilantro and Fresno chile if using. Serve with the remaining peanut sauce, steamed rice and lime wedges.
