Sweet peanuts and coconut pair with hot pepper and tangy lime for a delectable grilling option. Serve this dish up with grilled sweet potatoes and a side of green veggies for a delicious, gourmet spread that requires minimal effort. Split this into more servings to make it an appetizer.

Tip: To toast shredded coconut, place in a dry skillet over medium heat and stir until lightly browned (2-3 minutes).

Ingredients

  • Sauce:

    • ½ cup natural peanut butter
    • ½ cup unsweetened lite coconut milk
    • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. lime juice
    • 1 Tbsp. rice wine vinegar
    • 1 Tbsp. honey
    • 3 cloves garlic
    • ½ jalapeño, seeded
    • ⅛ tsp. chili powder

    Chicken Skewers:

    • 12 Skewers
    • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into strips
    • ⅓ cup unsweetened shredded coconut, lightly toasted

Directions

  1. Soak wooden skewers in water (10 minutes).
  2. In a food processor or blender, process all sauce ingredients until smooth.
  3. Thread chicken onto about a dozen skewers. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and set aside. Drizzle ¼ cup of the mixture over the raw chicken skewers.
