Grilled Peanut Chicken Tenders
Prep Time: 5 minutes plus overnite marinade
Cooking Time: 8 minutes
Reduce the spiciness with less cayenne pepper. However, it did not phase our teen taste testers -they gobbled it up. If your chicken tenders are small try threading them on skewers before grilling.
1/4 cup peanut butter, natural creamy or crunchy, or any
3 tablespoons soy sauce, low sodium
4 teaspoons lime(s), juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar, light
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 onion(s), medium, chopped
1 pound chicken breast, boneless and skinless, tenders
In a large zip lock bag combine all of the ingredients except the onion and chicken. Seal the bag and mix well by gently squeezing and sloshing the bag. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the marinade for sauce. Add the chicken and onion to the bag and seal and coat the chicken. Refrigerate over nite or for a few hours if possible. Cook the chicken on the BBQ or grill pan for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until done. Place chicken on a platter and drizzle with the reserved sauce.
