½ cup creamy peanut butter

2 tablespoons soy sauce (or supplement with Naked Coconuts Soy-Free Seasoning Sauce)

1½ tablespoons brown sugar

Place the chicken in the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour or up to 8 hours.

Remove the chicken from the marinade and thread onto skewers.

Preheat the grill or a grill pan to medium heat. Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through.

Sprinkle the cilantro and peanuts on top of the chicken and serve with peanut sauce.

For the peanut sauce:

Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, lime juice, sesame oil, garlic and warm water in a medium sized bowl. Whisk until smooth and serve alongside the chicken.
