Thai Chicken Skewers with Peanut Sauce

Jenna made these for Don and herself while I was in Jamaica for spring break. Don absolutely loved these! See her changes in bold.

Thai Chicken Skewers with Peanut Sauce

Chicken & Marinade Ingredients:

3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon sesame oil (found by the Asian sauces)
Juice from one lime
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon Sriracha (Asian chili sauce found with the other Asian ingredients)
1/8 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 ½ pounds (24 oz) raw boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite sized chunks
* fresh pineapple chunks
*fresh green pepper chunks

 You’ll also need 9” skewers – if using wooden skewers you should soak them in water for about 30 minutes before use

Peanut Sauce Ingredients:

2 tablespoons PB2 powdered peanut butter
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon water
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon Sriracha
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

1. To create the marinade, combine the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, lime juice, garlic, sriracha, red pepper flakes and cilantro from the first set of ingredients and mix thoroughly. Pour marinade into a gallon Ziploc bag and add chicken. Seal bag and shake to coat chicken in the marinade. Place the bag in the refrigerator so that the chicken is covered in the marinade and refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours (but can marinate longer – i.e. all day, overnight, etc).We cooked down the marinade and basted the skewers halfway through cooking.

2. Pre-heat the grill until hot. Divide the chicken evenly onto the four skewers.** We added pineapple and pepper chunks. Place the skewers on the grill over low heat. Depending on your grill, cooking times may vary. On our 4-burner grill the chicken skewers cooked in about 10 minutes, so I suggest cooking yours for about 5-6 minutes and then flipping them and continuing to cook until chicken is cooked through.

3. To make the sauce, place all sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until combined. Serve each chicken skewer with about a tablespoon of peanut sauce for dipping.We added a bit more water to thin the sauce.

Yields 4 skewers. WW P+: 5 per skewer with about 1 tablespoon of sauce (P+ calculated using the recipe builder on weight

    God's credibility is not predicated by a vote of confidence by the majority. God does not need to have His truth validated by the masses. The Bible and the Bible alone is God's truth to mankind. No creed book, Bible commentary, nor congregational church vote is needed to affirm God's credibility.

    The entire population of the world disbelieved God when He told them is they ate from the tree in the middle of the garden or touched it, that they would die. (Genesis 3:4)

    Adam and Eve died even though the majority opinion was in their favor. God's truth was not voided because the total population of the world disbelieved it.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    Jesus said he who has believed shall be saved. The vast majority of the world disbelieves that. The majority opinion does not invalidate the words of Jesus.

    Jesus said he who has been baptized shall be saved. The majority of the world believes water baptism is not essential in order for men to be saved. Majority opinion is not necessary to affirm, establish, or validate the words of Jesus Christ.

    God's credibility does not depend on the majority of the worlds population to confirm, validate, endorse, nor corroborate His truth.

    GOD'S WORD IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE. The truth in the Bible is not subject to affirmation by a majority vote.
