  • Make dipping sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, vinegar, remaining 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, and 2 to 3 tablespoons water.

  • Heat grill pan over high. Working in batches, brush pan with oil, and cook chicken until opaque throughout, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve chicken skewers with dipping sauce.

Cook's Notes

If you don't have a grill pan, you can use a regular skillet.

Because of peanut allergies I use cashewnut paste.

The chicken was amazing! My family loves spice and strong flavors, so I always double the garlic, heavy on chili - as I did in this case. I used a stove top griddle to cook the chicken breasts on moderately high heat until golden. Teenage boys LOVED it, saying I was the best cook:-) The sauce was a bit too peanut buttery. I added a lot more chili, sriracha, vinegar, splash of soy sauce, s.oil and heated it on low. With 3x the chicken, 1/2 the sauce was enough, lightly drizzled.

AuntieBetty, I have baked chicken satay skewers, just be sure to soak the wooden skewers in water for a few hours or they could char/burn in the oven. I went about 25 minutes at 350 turning a few times.

I'm going to try baking the chicken/skewers rather than frying. Has anyone already tried this way?

The chicken was good, but not as much flavor as I would have liked. The dipping sauce is AWFUL!!! There are so many better recipes out there for this. I would never make this one again. Peanut butter and vinegar? REALLY???

These are tasty. The marinade isn't so flavorful but juicy, grilled chicken is always yummy. I'm surprised how flavorful the sauce was with so few ingredients. The sauce is great, dip some cucumbers into it like I did- delicious.

Fabulous combo for summer nights. I made them for a party and they disappeared. Dipping sauce is killer good. Also made feta dip on this site to go with and it was also wonderful.
