Quick-cooking chicken kabobs take on the flavor of Thailand thanks to a pleasing peanut sauce.
cup creamy peanut butter
cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
cup rice vinegar
teaspoon red pepper sauce
boneless skinless chicken breasts (2 lb), each cut lengthwise into 4 strips
large red bell pepper, cut into 24 pieces
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In 2-quart saucepan, mix peanut butter, soy sauce and vinegar until smooth. Stir in sugar and pepper sauce. Cook over medium-high heat about 2 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened. Place 3/4 cup sauce in small serving bowl to use as dipping sauce.
On each of 6 (12-inch) metal skewers, thread 4 chicken strips and 4 bell pepper pieces alternately, leaving about 1/4-inch space between each piece. Brush chicken and bell pepper with some of the remaining sauce.
Spray kabobs with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Place kabobs on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes. Turn kabobs and brush with sauce; cook 2 to 3 minutes longer or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining sauce used for brushing kabobs during grilling. Serve kabobs with reserved sauce for dipping.
White vinegar diluted with a little water can be used instead of the rice vinegar.
Make the sauce ahead and gently reheated when needed. Or use purchased peanut sauce; for best results, choose a thick peanut sauce.
