    A spicy, fun way to dress up the boneless skinless chicken breasts we always have on hand. These work as a main dish for a weeknight meal, or a different appetizer or snack for a casual party.

    For Sauce

    For chicken


    1. 1
      Combine all sauce ingredients in a food processor and mix. Thin as needed with a little water or rice vinegar, just until sauce is smooth. It will be very thick at this stage. This is okay!
    2. 2
      Cut each chicken breast lengthwise into four strips. Toss strips with lime juice, soy sauce, vinegar and cardamom. Allow to sit in this mixture for about an hour.
    3. 3
      Preheat grill or broiler, and cook chicken until done and lightly browned.
    4. 4
      Warm sauce in a small saucepan, and drizzle over cooked chicken, or serve on the side for dipping.

      With only one exception, I pretty much followed the recipe on this ~ I did, however, make only half a recipe & included just 1 teaspoon of the chili sauce! We loved the taste of this unusual chicken dish, & the next time I'll be making this recipe as appetizers for a monthly group that I host! Thanks for posting it!

      This was really good and my whole family enjoyed it a lot. There was one step that was missed, even though it was easy to figure out - skewering the chicken! :) I didn't use lemongrass because I didn't want to go out just to buy that. I also don't have cardamom or cilantro because I don't like them. My sauce wasn't too thick after I heated it, in fact it was perfect. I put it in the microwave on low for a few seconds and it was just right. Maybe if I used the other ingredients, it would have been different. Taking a vote here, it warranted 4.5 stars, but since I can't do that and there was a step missing, I thought 4 stars were fair. Thanks!

      This smelled great while I was mixing everything together. I loved the flavors of the sauce but it wouldn't get smooth even when heated in the saucepan. I added more vinegar and sriracha chili sauce but I didn't want to add too much and dilute the flavors plus I wanted to prepare this as written because I was reviewing it for the RSC contest#13. So next time, I would lessen the peanut butter and add more liquid to give a dipping quality to the sauce. The cardamom was an interesting flavor on the chicken but one I would leave off if I made these again. I would have liked the cilantro to come through a little more so I would add more of that next time. Had fun making these, thanks!!
