This chicken is marinated in peanut oil and lime juice and then put under a hot broiler. It goes very nicely with the peanut sauce and pineapple fried rice on the side.

1 tablespoon Sesame Oil
Juice from 1/2 lime
2 Chicken breast; skinless, boneless
1 -- Peanut sauce --
1 tablespoon Peanut oil
1 small Onion; finely chopped

You've adjusted the recipe from 4 (as originally posted) to 4 Servings. The ingredients above reflect 4 Servings, but the instructions reflect the as-posted 4. You may need to adjust the times, temperatures or quantities mentioned in the recipe below as needed.

Cut the chicken into 1 inch cubes and set aside. Combine both the oils and the 1st lime juice in a non-metallic dish. Add the chicken to the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Presoak 8-12 bamboo skewers in water to prevent scorching when baking.

To make the peanut sauce, heat the oil in a small pan and saute the onion, chile pepper and garlic, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the peanut butter, water and lime juice, stirring constantly until the peanut butter has a sauce consistency. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

Drain the chicken cubes and season them to taste with salt and pepper. Thread onto the bamboo skewers. Broil for about 10 minutes or until cooked throughout. Serve hot with the warm peanut dip.

Comment or review

I do agree with the last comment in the sense that it is a very mild dish. It is more catered to those with a low heat tolerance and for serving to kids. I have increased the chile peppers to 2 in the recipe, and then please add salt and pepper, to taste, of course. If you like your dishes spicy, you can most certainly add as many of the chile peppers as you wish, to add more heat to the dish.

This recipe was easy to make, however it was completely bland. The peanut sauce was also very bland.

This was easy to make and delicious. Next time I make it, I will use less peanut oil in the sauce (maybe 1 Tbs instead of 2), as it was a little oily. The flavor was great, though. Don't cook the sauce too long or it will start to fall apart -- remove from heat as soon as it's nice and creamy.
