Stir up a superfast peanut sauce, and marinate the chicken before you head out for the day. The remaining ingredients can be quickly put together when you get home from work.

How to Make It

Step 1

Whisk together first 5 ingredients and 1/2 cup water in a large shallow dish or zip-top plastic freezer bag; reserve 3/4 cup. Add chicken to dish, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 8 hours, turning occasionally.

Step 2

Soak wooden skewers in water 30 minutes.

Step 3

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread chicken, onions, and next 4 ingredients alternately onto wooden skewers, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces.

Step 4

Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from grill, and baste with reserved 3/4 cup marinade.

Step 5

Spicy Thai Pork Kabobs: Substitute 1 (5-lb.) package pork tenderloin, trimmed, for chicken. Proceed with recipe as directed.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I would definitely consider it a "company" dish... but great for a special meal for my family as well. I added the juice of a whole lime, as well as the zest. I also added an additional 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes to make it a bit spicier. I would leave out the basil, as it dries up when grilled.

This was pretty good, I just expected it to have more flavor. I would consider making it again for a weeknight meal as it is quick and easy to make. My green onion and basil burned on grill. I served it with sweet-hot asian noodle bowl.

We loved this recipe! I skipped the basil, simply because I didn't have any. I wouldn't change anything.
