  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 large lime juice only
  • Black pepper to taste
  • 1 pound chicken tenders threaded onto small skewers


  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter I used all natural
  • 1/4 inch piece fresh ginger minced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk OR water or a mix of both
  • honey or low carb sweetener to taste
  • fresh chili cayenne pepper or chili sauce, to taste (optional)


  • Season the chicken: Place the sesame oil, soy sauce, lime juice and pepper to a shallow dish that fits the length of your skewers. Add the chicken and marinate for 15 minutes, turning the skewers occasionally.
  • Make the sauce: Place all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and mix well. Alternatively, blend in a mini food processor for a smoother sauce.
  • Grill the chicken: Heat the grill (or a grill pan over medium high heat on the stove). Grill the kabobs until the chicken is done, about 4-8 minutes per side (depending on the thickness of your chicken).
  • Serve the hot chicken skewers with the peanut dipping sauce.
