Ingredients

Dressing/Marinade

  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter {I used Kraft}
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes

Salad

  • 2 chicken breasts sliced into 1 X 2 inch strips {approx}
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 carrot shredded
  • 1 yellow pepper thinly julienned
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1/3 cup salted peanuts
  • green onions diced {garnish}

Instructions

Chicken:

  • Combine all dressing/marinade ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Slice chicken and place in a shallow bowl. Toss with ½ cup of marinade {Cover and refrigerate the remaining dressing/marinade for later}.
  • Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for 2 hours or more.
  • Pre-heat grill to medium high.
  • Thread chicken onto bamboo skewers and grill for 5 minutes a side, until cooked through.

Salad:

  • Toss all vegetables in remaining dressing/marinade, a bit at a time {taste and decide how much you'd like, using all the dressing gives a heavily-dressed salad}. Top with peanuts and onions.

Notes

Soaking the skewers in water will help prevent them from burning too badly on the grill.
