For the Chicken

1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, grilled, skinless, boneless, cubed
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp sesame oil
1/2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp ginger root, grated

For the Marinade

1 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 tsp ginger root, grated

1/4 cup water + 2 Tbsp

For the Garnish (optional)

1 Tbsp cilantro, chopped

Directions

  1. 1. Whisk together soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, vinegar, garlic and minced ginger. Place chicken cubes in marinade, cover, refrigerate, and let sit overnight or at least 4-6 hours.
  2. 2. For the Peanut Sauce: Add all ingredients to a small bowl & whisk until smooth. Add additional water if a thinner consistency is desired. Pour sauce into a glass dish or jar, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. 3. Thread skewers with marinated chicken cubes and refrigerate while heating the remaining marinade. Pour the remaining marinade into a small sauce pan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until thickened.
  4. 4. Lightly oil grates of grill, grill pan, or skillet with cooking spray, and turn to medium-high heat. Once hot, add skewers and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through and lightly browned, basting with the marinade as it cooks.
  5. 5. Serve with peanut sauce & garnish with cilantro & chopped peanuts if desired.
