It’s the last and final week for the H-E-B Meal Maker Challenge. Our main ingredient was Natural Peter Pan Creamy Peanut Butter. After a long deliberation with Shaun I decided to make some chicken skewers with a peanut butter sauce. I know these sauces are very common but I was wanting to make one on my own.
Also, with this recipe needing to be less than 7 ingredients I needed to chose all of the ingredients for this recipe wisely. This sauce came out very think but I actually preferred it like that in the long run. We were skeptical with the flavor of chicken and peanut butter but we are NEW fans.
I hope you are enjoying you long Holiday weekend with family and friends. We are in central Texas with my family grilling out and spending some much needed quality time. If you are needing a nice meal for your next grilling event you will need to try out these skewers. They are great being paired with vegetables.
