  2. Remove chicken from marinade and skewer it (should roughly be 3/4 full). Place on a tray or plate that can be covered, or get ready to cook right away!
  3. Add Peanut Sauce ingredients to a small pot, heat through and mix with a whisk. Done!
  4. Cook the chicken on a smoking hot grill. should be a few minutes per side. Serve with the Peanut Sauce, Limes, Cilantro, Chopped Peanuts… and beers… You’re going to love it!!
