Chicken skewers with Peanut Dipping Sauce
Adapted from Martha Stewart
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup apricot preserves, divided
4 T soy sauce, divided
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp ground mustard
3 T olive oil
2 T apple cider vinegar
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper
Cut chicken lengthwise into 1/2" thick strips and place in a gallon size plastic bag. Add 1/4 cup preserves, 2 T soy sauce, garlic, mustard, oil, and vinegar. Marinate for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator. When marinated, preheat grill and thread chicken onto skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak them in water at least 30 minutes prior to skewering chicken.) Grill approximately 2 minutes on each side.
Prepare dipping sauce by combining peanut butter, remaining apricot preserves, remaining soy sauce, lime juice and crushed red pepper flakes in the food processor. Combine until smooth.
