Thanks so much, JaneRI! I've always loved this dish and had lost the recipe. The marinade is also great tossed with any pasta, chilled, and used as a cold summer salad or side dish. Great for BBQs! Thanks again. I'll be fixing this all summer!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together until well blended.
  2. The neatest way to do it is to pour the 1/2 cup oil into a large glass measuring cup (2 cup size or larger), add peanut butter to the oil until the total comes out to 1 cup.
  3. I continue adding vinegar, soy sauce& lemon juice to the measuring cup in this manner.
  4. I pour it all out into a small mixing bowl to add the seasonings.
  5. This way the peanut butter pours out w/the oil instead of making a mess in the measuring cup.
  6. I use jarred garlic& ginger- this accounts for the 5 minutes prep time.
  7. I mainly use this for tofu chunks or chicken- marinate at least one hour or overnight.
  8. If using chicken'tenders' set aside some of the marinade (before adding the rest of it to chicken) to use as a dipping sauce.
