Chicken Satay Skewers Served with Warm Peanut Dipping Sauce

These chicken skewers are so easy yet so delicious I don't know why I don't make them more often.  The thigh of the chicken has a little more flavor than the breast and the light seasoning will get super crispy on the grill.  If I being honest the peanut sauce is so good you will try to find something to dip all the extra sauce in.  I think my next recipe will include more proteins or veggies I can grill to pair with it because it is "that good."

 2-3 pounds boneless chicken thighs;  cut in chunks
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tablespoon sesame oil
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
5 Tablespoons peanut butter
2 + 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
Juice from one lime
1 cup water
salt to taste

If using bamboo skewers, you must soak them for about 30 minutes prior to grilling to avoid burning.

Place chicken in a large bowl and season with red pepper flakes, sesame oil and 2 T soy sauce.  

Place 6-8 pieces of chicken on each skewer and grill 
to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

Peanut Sauce:
In a small sauce pan, over medium heat, whisk together peanut butter, 2 T soy sauce, 
lime juice, 1 T brown sugar, 1 cup of water and pinch of salt and pepper.

Once the ingredients are incorporated together stir for another 3-5 minutes.

Remove from heat and serve warm.
