Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  chili powder
5 Tablespoon(T)  water
4 Tablespoon(T)  crunchy peanut butter
1 Clove(clv)  garlic, finely chopped
1/2   onion, finely chopped
2 Tablespoon(T)  peanut oil
1   cucumber, coarsely chopped
1   fresh gingerroot, 1 inch, peeled and finely chopped
1 Clove(clv)  garlic, finely chopped
1 Tablespoon(T)  cornstarch
4 Tablespoon(T)  soy sauce
4   skinless, boneless chicken breasts, 4 ounces each, cut into 3/4 inch cubes

Preparation

Put the chicken cubes in a shallow dish.  Mix the soy sauce, cornstarch, garlic and ginger together in a small bowl and pour over the chicken.  Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  Meanwhile, soak 12 bamboo skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes.  Preheat the oven to 375° F.  Divide the chicken cubes between the bamboo skewers.  Heat a ridged grill pan until hot, then add the skewers and cook over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, turning occasionally, until browned all over.  Transfer the skewers to a cookie sheet and cook in the preheated oven for 5 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through.  To make the sauce:  Heat the oil in a pan, then add the onion and garlic and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened.  Add the peanut butter, water and chili powder and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened and thinned.  Serve the skewers immediately with the warm sauce and the cucumber.

Additional notes

Tip:  Presoaking the bamboo skewers will help prevent them from burning.  You can also cut any excess length from the skewers if they are too long, so they fit within the grill pan.  This will stop the exposed ends from burning.
