"Wonderful combination of flavors. More of an appetizer (think variation on PF Changs lettuce wraps) so next time I'm gonna see if I can grill the chicken ahead of time and then reheat. If so, would make a nice party (think Super Bowl) dish."

Preparation

Skewer each half chicken thigh with 2 skewers so that they lay flat. Place the chicken in a large shallow baking dish.

Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, honey, oil, chili powder, and garlic. Pour over thighs and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours.

Preheat grill to high or grill pan over high heat.

Remove thighs from the marinade and season with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until just cooked through.

Remove chicken from skewer, place in a butter lettuce leaf, drizzle with some of the peanut-red chili sauce, and top with slaw, mint, and chopped peanuts.
