Grilled Chicken Skewers with Thai Peanut Sauce
Marinated chicken and hearty vegetables grilled to perfection and topped with a vibrant Thai peanut sauce that’s bursting with tangy and spicy flavor.
It’s officially grilling season in Minnesota! I decided to make on of my all-time favorite dishes to celebrate – Grilled Chicken Skewers with Thai Peanut Sauce. This dish is a double whammy of deliciousness. First from the grilled chicken which is tenderized in a delectable marinade and then from the peanut sauce. The flavor of Thai peanut sauce is simply out of this world. It’s sweet, salty, tangy, and spicy – there’s just nothing like it. I’m all set to grill the traditional summer fare – burgers, brats, corn on the cob – but to kick off the season right I went with a dish that’s hearty, healthy, and full of my all-time favorite word – flavor.
The key to moist and flavorful chicken is to marinate it before grilling. The marinade will tenderize the meat and infuse it with flavor. Start off by mincing four cloves of garlic. Next up is to dice the chicken. Cut 1 1/2 lbs. of chicken breast into chunks and place them in a mixing bowl. To the chicken add 1 Tbsp. olive oil, 2 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice, 4 cloves of minced garlic, 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper, 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika, 1/8 tsp. kosher salt, and a pinch of pepper. Mix until the chicken is completely coated and then place the bowl in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (letting the chicken marinate for a few hours is ideal but at least 30 minutes is recommended).
