Very good, but I made a few changes. Added about 2 tablespoons lime juice, which I highly recommend. Used about half the sugar, and it seemed about the right sweetness. Also used a bit less water, probably about 1/2 cup. So easy and very quick, we will definitely make this again. Served with brown rice and sauteed broccoli. Kids loved it, too!

- 1. Prepare a grill for high heat (450° to 550°). In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook garlic and peanut butter together until simmering, about 4 minutes. Whisk in sugar, chile flakes, soy sauce, and 2/3 cup water. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until starting to thicken, about 10 minutes.
- 2. Meanwhile, rub chicken with oil and grill until golden brown and almost cooked through, turning once, about 6 minutes total. Brush about 1 tbsp. peanut sauce over each chicken piece and cook just until sauce starts to caramelize, about 2 minutes. Serve with steamed vegetables and remaining sauce on the side.
