Grilled Chicken with an Indonesian Peanut Sauce

I must admit that I started making this grilled chicken umpteen years ago and it still remains one of my absolute favorites. This peanut sauce is very easy to make and extremely versatile. It has such a wonderfully unique flavor and packs just the right amount of heat. I grilled these beauties up for dinner tonight...the best part about this recipe aside from the incredible that it is so super easy to make! You can also toss it with a pasta for a great side dish, or as my daughter Gracie likes to do, eat it right out of the bowl!


1/2 c. olive oil
1/3c. peanut butter
1/4 c. lemon
1/4 c. soy sauce
1-2 tsp. garlic powder
1-2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


In blender or food processor, add all ingredients and blend well. To use the peanut sauce as a marinade, simply pour it over your meat and set in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then grill.
