  • Thai Chicken Skewers

    Pair with Line 39 Chardonnay

    Chicken:

    • 1½ lb boneless, skinless chicken cut into ¾ inch cubes
    • ¾ tsp kosher salt
    • ½ tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • Metal or wooden skewers
    • Fresh cilantro for serving

    Peanut Sauce:

    • ½ cup natural peanut butter (no sugar added)
    • 6 tbsp warm water
    • 1½ tsp tamari (or soy sauce)
    • 2 tsp rice vinegar
    • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
    • 1½ tsp sesame oil
    • ¼ tsp red pepper flakes
    1. To make the peanut sauce, whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl until completely smooth. (Mixture will seize up at first, but keep whisking, it will even out.) Set aside.
    2. Before making chicken, if you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning.
    3. To make chicken, toss chicken cubes with salt. Then mix together olive oil and tamari, and pour over top of chicken. Mix with hands to coat, and let sit for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
    4. Thread the chicken cubes, about 6-7, on each skewer. Turn grill (or indoor grill pan) to medium-high heat. Grill for 10-12 minutes, turning every 4 minutes so all sides get a nice char. Test one piece of chicken to see if it is cooked all the way through.
    5. Serve with peanut sauce drizzled and lightly brushed over the top. Sprinkle chicken with minced cilantro, and put extra peanut sauce on the side for dipping. Eat Up!

    Peanut sauce can be made two days ahead; skewers can be made day of and served hot or at room temperature. Serves 4-6.
