This twist on the traditional Asian chicken dish has a very unique flavor, largely due to the use of peanut butter cups as the central flavoring agent. That's right, we created a rich sauce using a blend of soy, rice wine vinegar, seasonings, and chocolate-peanut butter cups.

  • Thread chicken thighs onto wooden skewers. Brush chicken evenly with sesame oil and sprinkle with black pepper.

Sprinkle servings with mint, cilantro, and jalapeno slices. Serve immediately.
