Chicken Skewers

Not quite Thai food, but tonight's diet dinner was chicken skewers with peanut sauce and that seemed like something we could share. The strips of chicken breast marinated for about an hour in lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, S&P, and chili powder. And then cooked, in just a few minutes, on a hot grill. For the peanut sauce I brought equal parts peanut butter and chicken broth (1/2 cup) to a boil along with a chopped clove of garlic, a pinch of crushed red chiles, 1 1/2 TB of soy sauce, and a 1/2 TB sesame oil and stirred just until the mixture was smooth. Then I added in a finely chopped shallot and let the sauce cool before dinner. Add a little steamed rice for the big man and call it done.
