  • Step 1

    WASH, trim and pound the chicken to flatten to a consistent thickness.

    MIX brown sugar, peanut butter, canola oil, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, cayenne pepper and salt in a small bowl for marinade.

    PLACE chicken in a shallow dish (or plastic bag). Cover with the marinade. Marinate 1 hour at room temperature or as long as overnight in the refrigerator.

  • Step 4

    REMOVE chicken from marinade and place on a hot grill. Grill about 4 to 6 minute on each side, turning only once, until browned.

    SPOON peanut sauce over hot chicken and sprinkle with the cilantro.
