1 cup rice wine vinegar

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup vegetable oil

Sesame oil

1/3 cup sugar

2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger

25 chicken tenders, halved on the bias

1/2 cup chopped scallions plus 2 tablespoons, for garnish

1/2 cup chopped cilantro leaves

1/4 cup black sesame seeds, for garnish

1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped for garnish


Special equipment:
6-inch bamboo skewers
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine vinegar, peanut butter, soy sauce, vegetable oil, sesame oil, to taste, sugar and ginger in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and process until smooth. Toss 1 1/2 cups of the peanut butter mixture with the chicken tenders in a bowl until the chicken is well coated. Spread the chicken out in a baking pan in a single layer. Bake until the tenders are firm to the touch, about 30 minutes. Let cool.
