  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons hot chili oil, to taste
  • 1 1/4 cups teriyaki sauce, divided
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth
  • Juice of 2 limes, zest of 1 reserved for sauce
  • 1 bunch scallions (green onions), thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted

  2. Cut chicken into thin 1 1/2 inch-wide strips (about 20 slices) place in shallow casserole dish.
  3. Stir together 1 cup teriyaki sauce, garlic and chili oil and pour over chicken strips. Dredge meat through the spices to distribute evenly and place dish in refrigerator to marinate.

  6. In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, lime zest and the hot teriyaki/apple juice mixture until it resembles a dipping sauce consistency.
  7. Place the sauce in a serving bowl, and set it aside while you grill up the satays.
  8. Skewer the strips of chicken by weaving the sticks in and out.
  9. Grill the satays for about 2-3 minutes until cooked through.
  10. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the strips, garnish with scallions and serve with peanut sauce.
  11. Garnish the dipping sauce and meat with the scallions and toasted sesame seeds.

Make ahead cooking tip for your Super Bowl Party…

Pour the marinade ingredients into a freezer bag and place chicken or beef strips into the bag, seal and massage marinade into meat and then freeze. The strips thaw out quickly and this makes a perfect quick snack when you have unexpected guests or events to attend.
