Recipe of the Week: BBQ Peanut Butter Chicken

A big welcome back to Dr. Kathleen Cuneo from  You may remember she shared her delicious slow-cooker teriyaki chicken recipe a while back (if not, do check it out, it is yummy!).

I don’t know about the weather where you are, but here in Toronto it is HOT and SUNNY… and that means only one thing.  BBQ.  Here is a delicious recipe for BBQ Peanut Butter Chicken.

What is your favorite BBQ recipe?  We’d love to hear it.  Please leave a comment and let’s get our grills fired up this summer!

BBQ Peanut Butter Chicken

1 cup peanut butter

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup white wine vinegar

¼ cup lemon juice

6 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

¾ teaspoon ground ginger

2 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips

* Mix ingredients (except the chicken) in a blender until combined.
* Add one cup of water to thin. Mix again.
* Marinate chicken for at least 2 hours.
* Grill until chicken is cooked through (about 8 minutes).
* I’ve found that this recipe makes enough marinade for two meals. Use what you need for meal #1 and freeze the remaining marinade until you’re ready to make it again. Then defrost a day or two beforehand and place chicken in marinade.

Serves 8.
