Peanut Lime Chicken

This is going to be the newest addition to my batch party selections!!! Lime, Peanut, how can you go wrong???


Tender chunks of chicken breasts or thighs were marinated in an awesome sauce of lime, peanut, soy and red pepper. The marinade was mixed in a bowl and then poured into a freezer bag.


Add the chicken to the bag, seal and freeze.


When it time to cook- thaw the bag completely and thread the chicken chunks on skewers.  Cook for 5 minutes on each side. The end result is tender zesty chicken with a slight hint of heat.  I served this over rice with a side of grilled vegetables.

Peanut Lime Chicken

1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup peanut oil

2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 minced garlic cloves
1 chili pepper
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken thighs or breasts, cubed

Mix all of the ingredients  together and put in a freezer bag. Seal and freeze.

Thaw completely, thread onto skewers and grill for 5-7 minutes per side.

Looks awesome. Is freezing it an important step or could you just marinade overnight?

You could definitely just marinate it overnight.

that sounds delicious, and reminds me of the sauce/marinade for chicken satay, but much simpler! ( i come from singapore)
