Tasty Tuesday

It was a beautiful day today so I wanted to cook something outside on the grill. I found this recipe on Allrecipes.com and it's very easy. So easy in fact that even after putting the food on the grill and then the grill running out of propane I was able to schlep it back inside and cook it all in a grill pan. Slainte!

Grilled Peanut Chicken
2 tbsp reduced fat peanut butter
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 dash ground cayenne pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

1. Spray grill with Pam or light oil. Preheat grill on high heat.
2. In a bowl, mix together the peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, garlic, and cayenne pepper. Note: I added about 1 tsp of hot water to the mixture to soften the peanut butter a bit and make it mix together a little easier.
3. Place chicken on grill and brush with 1/2 the sauce. Grill 6 to 8 minutes. Turn chicken, and brush with remaining sauce. Continue grilling 6 to 8 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Remove from grill using a spatula to keep crispy bits on the chicken rather than on the grill.

I served with grilled zucchini and rice. It was so easy and very tasty. Next time I will double the peanut butter mixture to serve with the rice or for dipping sauce.


  1. Mmmmm, the grilled zucchini looks so good...not to mention the chicken...I realy have to try some of these recipes!

  2. I'll have everyone know that Pumpkin is in ITALY right now as you read about grilled chicken. Little stinker.

  3. Looks SO good! Yet another one I'm going to print out and put in my "favorite recipes" cookbook! Soon, you will have your own section!

    I hope you are having a WONDERFUL time in Italy!

  4. I couldn't even read your recipe because I am babysitting and your music came blasting over the speakers. I will come back tonight.

  5. Yum - that sounds great. And easy. I'll have to try it. And you're in Italy? Or is Jason April fooling??
