Ingredients

  • 1/2

    cup freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1

    orange, zested (about 2 teaspoons)

  • 1/2

    cup smooth natural peanut butter

  • 2

    tablespoons packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/4

    cup light soy sauce

  • 2

    teaspoons peeled grated fresh ginger

  • 4

    medium cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 1 1/2

    pounds boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch wide strips

  • Oil, for grill grate

  • Skewers (soaked in water for 20 minutes if wooden)

  • 1/4

    cup roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves, for serving

  • 1/3

    cup roughly chopped roasted, salted peanuts, for serving

Directions

In a large bowl, whisk together the orange juice, orange zest, peanut butter, sugar, soy, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes until smooth and evenly combined. Reserve 1/3 cup of the mixture to serve as a dipping sauce. Put the marinade in a resalable plastic bag, add the chicken, seal the bag and turn to coat evenly. Refrigerate and allow to marinate for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours. Heat a grill to medium heat, (350 degrees F), and rub the grate with a towel dipped in oil. Thread 1 to 2 chicken tenders on each skewer. Grill the chicken until thoroughly cooked, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving platter and sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts. Serve hot or at room temperature with the reserved peanut sauce.
