  1. Remove bones and skin from chicken. Cut chicken into 3/4-inch pieces. (For easier cutting, partially freeze chicken about 1 hour.)
  2. Mix chicken and remaining ingredients except Peanut Sauce in glass bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  3. Soak 14 to 16 bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning. Make Peanut Sauce. To Make Peanut Sauce: Heat oil in a 1 1/2 quart saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion in oil, stirring occasionally, until tender; remove from heat. Stir in peanut butter, water, lemon juice, coriander and hot pepper sauce. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, just until blended (sauce will separate if overcooked). Remove from heat and set aside to serve with chicken kabobs when ready.
  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 Peanut Sauce.

Pretty good, especially on the BBQ. Peanut sauce is a quite bland and it helped to add a little soy sauce.

Not bad, but way too salty. It was also a little bland -- no texture. On the whole, it was a disapointing experience given the rave reviews.

I have to agree with the other reviewers that this one goes over really well with the kids. On a personal note, I think that I would add more spice to the sauce, but then, the kids might not like it :) I would highly recommend trying this recipe though.

Good, but not the best. The sauce has a very strong peanut butter taste. It is like dipping the chicken into regular peanut butter, so if you aren't a fan of it don't bother. The smell isn't bad, but it is very strong and tends to linger in the house. I probably would make it again, but next time I will adjust the sauce for more flavor.

This is pretty good. the marinate is great. i have used pretty much this exact recipe for a chicken marinade for years.(except no b.sugar, more oil, and fresh shredded ginger) its good by itself for the kabobs, grilled chicken and the grilled chicken is great in green sauce chicken enchiladas.-i need to submit that one. my husbands and I's fav. the peanut sauce seemed to be "missing something" it was ok. i think i used too big of an onion and i added some sugar to try and sweeten it some. its decent but i might try to find another peanut sauce and try this again.

It was very good - although not a favorite. Will make again on occasion.

This recipe was excellent. Fast, easy, and I had everything on hand. My kids are not big meat eaters, but they did enjoy spearing their peas with the skewers. I served this with cous cous. I would even make this for party food.
