Peanut-Lime Chicken

We had Peanut-Lime Chicken for dinner tonight. We hadn't had it in a while, and had maybe forgotten how good it is... which made me want to share the recipe.

Lime-Peanut Chicken with Jasmine Rice

For the marinade:
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup peanut oil (or vegetable oil)
3 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tablespoon ground coriander
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cubed
4 cups jasmine rice, prepared as normal

Combine the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk well. Place the chicken in the bowl and stir well so each piece is coated with marinade. Cover and chill for 2-4 hours or overnight. Stir after one hour. 

Preheat the grill to medium high. Thread the chicken onto wooden or metal skewers. Oil the grill well and then cook 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until the chicken is cooked through. Serve with jasmine rice; garnish with a sprig of parsley or cilantro.
