Chicken Kabobs with Peanut Sauce

Serves: 10
Total Calories: 195


6 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic minced
1 pound chicken cut in 3/4 -inch pieces
10 bamboo skewers (10 inches long)
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut in pieces
2 teaspoons sugar
1 to 2 teaspoon red bell pepper crushed


In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of the soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of the lemon juice, oil and garlic. Pour into a large reclosable plastic bag or a shallow baking dish. Place chicken in marinade, turning to coat. Close bag or cover baking dish. Refrigerate at least 2 or up to 6 hours, turning chicken over occasionally.

Soak skewers in water for 1 to 2 hours while meat is marinating. (Skewers will burn less during broiling if water soaked.)

Pour marinade from meat into a small saucepan. To saucepan, add half-and-half, peanut butter, butter or margarine, remaining 3 tablespoons soy sauce, remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice, sugar and red pepper. Stirring over low heat, cook until sauce is blended and hot (do not boil) set aside and keep warm.

Thread 5 or 6 pieces of meat onto each skewer. Place on a broiler rack and brush with peanut sauce. Broil 6 inches from heat source for 6 minutes or until no longer pink in center, turning once. Serve with remaining warm sauce.
