  • Thread each chicken tender onto a wooden skewer.
  • Place on the grill and cook each side for 3-5 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. While cooking, you can brush with more marinade if desired.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with Gourmet Garden lightly dried cilantro and with Peanut Sauce.

For Peanut Sauce:

  • Place all ingredients in food processor and blend until fully combined and smooth. If too thick, add a bit more coconut milk.
  • Enjoy!
