Garlic infused chicken skewers are chargrilled then drizzled with a homemade szechuan peanut sauce that will quickly become a family favorite!
Debate time. Skewers or kabobs? Which side are you on?
But I see it as this.
Skewers are what you thread the food on. The vehicle if you will. Kabob is the end masterpiece, the whole food item you get to devour. Sorta like the whole bread and toast thing. You don’t add toast into a toaster. You add bread. But you are left with toast.
Too much for a Monday morning? I get it.
My own brain drives me crazy sometimes….
Whatever you want to call them, they are essential for grilling season. While I am much more of a bird gal, than a beef gal. Chicken is present about 99% of the time on our dinner table. Unless you throw some shrimp in there!
This is truly a weeknight wonder dinner. In under 25 minutes, you have a great meal on the table. Chicken is seasoned with just a few ingredients – salt, pepper and garlic powder – but the sauce is where it’s at. The magic if you will.
While the chicken cooks, simple whip up the 5 ingredient sauce (water doesn’t count here…). The base is peanut butter then mixed with Szechuan sauce, which can be found in your Chinese food aisle of your local grocery store. I have been adding this sauce to nearly everything from basting to chicken before baking, to brushing green beans before roasting to just dunking baked chicken into! So no need to fret about buying a whole jar for this. It won’t last long. If you are allergic to peanuts, simply swap sunflower seed butter! Easy peasy. OMG, I hate myself for just saying that.
Please forgive me.
Whether side you are on, skewer or kabob…let’s eat!
