Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Reduced-sodium soy sauce 1 tablespoon
Rice wine vinegar 1 tablespoon
Canola oil 2 teaspoons
Ground ginger ½ + ¼ teaspoon
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into ½-inch strips ¾ pound
Coconut milk 1/3 cup
Smooth peanut butter 2 tablespoons
Garlic clove, minced 1
Serrano chile pepper, minced (optional) ½
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Juice of ½ lime
6 metal skewers, or wooden ones soaked in water for at least 20 minutes
Directions
  1. Mix together soy sauce, vinegar, oil, and ½ teaspoon ginger in a small bowl. Combine marinade and chicken strips in a large plastic resealable bag and let marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  2. Meanwhile, add coconut milk, peanut butter, garlic, chile, ¼ teaspoon ginger, salt, and lime juice to a medium skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking until smooth. Reduce heat to low and simmer 1-2 minutes, until the sauce thickens.
  3. Prepare grill. Thread chicken strips onto skewers so that they lie flat. Grill chicken about 3 minutes per side, until cooked through. Serve with dipping sauce.
