    Chefs Tips

    This sauce should be made with homemade Peanut Butter, but to be honest it is just easier to use a Jar.

    If you don't want to put the chicken on skewers you can just cook it in the pan with out the skewers.

    In this recipe I have used Crunchy Peanut Butter but you can use Smooth or even make your own. Peanut Butter 💬
