Chicken - skewer - peanut kitchen! kitchen!

Grilled chicken breast in a skewer with spicy peanut sauce...just in time
for that summer grilling.
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 tablespoons of coconut milk (you may skip this)
2 tablespoons of water
Juice of half a lime
1 tablespoon of soy sauce
pinch of salt (or 1 teaspoon of fish sauce)
1 teaspoon of hot sauce
1 teaspoon of minced ginger root
2 cloves of minced garlic
3 tablespoons of chopped green onions or cilantro
Combine in a bowl and mix thoroughly - add cilantro or green onions before serving.

A pkg. of 6" bamboo skewers
Marinade: Combine in a food processor ( or use mortar and pestle to create a paste)
3 tablespoons of chopped ginger
4 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons of chopped lemon grass (if you happen to have this lovely frangrant "grass" - you will love yourself forever!)
Pinch of salt
In a bowl, mix the marinade paste; add 2 tablespoons soy sauce; 3 tablespoons oyster sauce; 2-3 tablespoons olive oil.
Add and coat the chicken breast cut in cubed pieces to the bowl and allow to marinate for 1/2 hour or so.
Use 2 skewers and carefully, skewer 3 to 4 pieces of the chicken; coat the pieces with the marinade and set aside.
On a very hot oiled grill pan lay the skewered chicken as flat as you can and allow to cook for 5 minutes or so on each side until its cooked. (Try not to overcook the chicken please).
Serve with sliced cucumbers and PEANUT SAUCE. Add a couple slices of lime to sprinkle on the chicken. Serves 2
