Ingredients

For the Chicken:

  • 1 pound Just BARE Organic Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts — cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce — or additional 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice — from 2 small, juicy limes
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic — minced

For the Peanut Sauce:

  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 5 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce — or additional 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic — minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice — from about 1 small lime
  • Chopped fresh cilantro — chopped unsalted roasted peanuts, and lime wedges, for serving

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients, except for the chicken: soy sauce, fish sauce, lime juice, honey, Sriracha, ginger, and garlic. Add the chicken, toss to coat, then cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to grilling. If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the peanut sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken broth, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, fish sauce, Sriracha, ginger, and garlic. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then let cook, stirring often, until the sauce is smooth and has thickened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and set aside.
  3. When ready to cook, preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium high. Thread the chicken onto skewers. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Let rest for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro, then serve warm with peanut sauce and lime wedges.
