For Chicken Marinade:

  • 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 lb chicken breast skinless, boneless, cut into 0.5x4-inch strips

For Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 6 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup parsley or cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 3 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 pinch cayenne powder


  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the peanut butter and salad dressing until smooth.
  • Place chicken strips in the mixture. Cover the bowl and marinate for 3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Once marinated, thread 2 chicken strips onto a skewer. Arrange skewers on a metal grill rack positioned over a foil-lined baking pan.
  • Heat broiler on high. Broil skewers for 6 minutes and then turn them over. Broil another 4-6 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  • If you choose to grill the skewers, place the skewered chicken on a hot grill for 8 minutes, or until juices run clear.
  • Mix all the sauce ingredients until well combined. Serve with the chicken skewers, if desired.
