Kabobs
2
large whole bone-in chicken breasts (2 lb)
1/4
cup soy sauce
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
teaspoon packed brown sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground ginger
1
clove garlic, crushed
Peanut Sauce
1
tablespoon vegetable oil
1
small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1/3
cup peanut butter
1/3
cup water
1
tablespoon lemon juice
1/4
teaspoon ground coriander
3
to 4 drops red pepper sauce
  1. Remove skin and bones from chicken. Cut chicken into 3/4-inch pieces. (For easier cutting, partially freeze chicken about 1 hour.) In large glass bowl, mix chicken and remaining kabob ingredients. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Soak 14 to 16 bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.
  3. In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion in oil, stirring occasionally, until tender. Remove from heat. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until blended (sauce will separate if overcooked).
  4. Set oven control to broil. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Thread 4 or 5 chicken pieces on each skewer. Brush chicken with marinade.
  5. Broil chicken with tops about 4 inches from heat 4 to 5 minutes. Turn; brush with marinade. Broil 4 to 5 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve chicken with sauce.

Success
Instead of marinating chicken in a glass bowl, you can use a self-sealing plastic bag. Place sealed bag in a shallow dish (a pie plate is perfect), and set in refrigerator. Massage the bag every so often to make sure all of the chicken is coated. And when you’re done, just throw the bag away!
Time Saver
Shave prep time by using about 3/4 cup of store-bought peanut sauce—found in the ethnic-foods aisle—instead of the homemade version.
