Here's another great grilling option for Labor Day weekend. These have a nice mild Asian flavor and even my kiddos loved these (But that could have just been the skewers, they love food on skewers). I served these with grilled veggies, fresh melon and Won Ton Chicken Salad. (I'll be sharing that one tomorrow, its a family favorite!) It was a yummy meal and perfect for a hot evening.
Asian Grilled ChickenServes about 5
2 t garlic
1/2 C rice vinegar
1/2 C soy sauce
2 t Hoisin sauce (available in the Asian section of most grocery stores)
3/4 C brown sugar
2 t sesame oil
1 T sesame seeds
1/2 t ginger
pinch red pepper flakes
1 T peanut butter
1/3 C hot water
5 chicken breasts cut into long strips
12 shish kabob skewers
Place the peanut butter and 1/3 C water in the microwave and heat for 1 minutes. Stir it until it's smooth and combined well.
Place all ingredients but the chicken and skewers into a 9x13 pan. Stir them around to incorporate. Slide the chicken strips onto the skewers. Set them in the marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Grill the chicken skewers for about 7 minutes over medium heat. Turn and cook until chicken is cooked through.
