Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot chili oil
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup very hot water, plus more if needed
  • Neutral oil, for the grill
  • 2 pounds chicken tenders
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • Good-quality barbecue sauce, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium heat.

  • To make the peanut sauce, put the peanut butter in a blender with the soy sauce, honey, ginger, red pepper flakes, chili oil and lime juice. Add 1/4 cup very hot water as you blend the mixture. Check the consistency and add a little more hot water if needed to make it very smooth. Transfer the sauce to a small dish, cover it with plastic wrap and set aside.

  • Brush the grill with oil. Thread the chicken onto the skewers and grill on both sides until the chicken is done in the middle, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove to a serving platter and sprinkle on the cilantro.

  • Serve the skewers with dishes of the peanut sauce and a good-quality barbecue sauce for dipping.

  • Special equipment: 20 to 25 wooden skewers, soaked in water
