Appetizers & Drinks
You can’t go wrong with these! Fun but still sophisticated enough for a grown-up dinner party al fresco.
Makes 8 skewers
3 SUNSET® Sweet Bell Peppers
1 – 1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 24 pieces
Oil for brushing
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 – 3/4 cup purchased peanut sauce
8 metal skewers or 10" heavy wood skewers soaked in water
Garnish: cilantro sprigs if desired
Cut each pepper into 20 – 24 one-inch chunks. Thread each skewer as follows: 2 pieces of pepper, then 1 piece of chicken; repeat twice; then finish with 2 pieces of pepper. Lightly brush skewers with oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Cook skewers until chicken is cooked through, about 4 – 5 minutes per side. Serve drizzled with peanut sauce; garnish with cilantro.
Chef's Note: You can also make smaller versions and serve as an appetizer or to top an Asian-style salad.
