"Not only is New York City the nation's melting pot, it is also the casserole, the chafing dish and the charcoal grill."
-John Lindsay, Mayor

The refrigerator light goes on...

I love this spin on chicken satay with the ginger. It gives it a fresh, light flavor. The peanut sauce with the addition of cilantro is rich but soft and light enough for those with acid reflux.

Serve with Coconut Rice or Coconut Rice - Low Sodium Version

3 Tbsp fresh ginger (peeled and finely minced)
3 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into 2 ounce strips)
12 wooden skewers
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
6 Tbsp low sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp low sodium soy or gluten-free tamari sauce
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
spray olive oil

Place the chicken strips onto skewers.

Combine the minced ginger, sesame oil and chicken together in a large zipper bag. Marinate for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).

While the chicken is marinating place the peanut butter, chicken stock, soy sauce, salt, and cilantro in a blender. Puree until smooth. Chill.

When ready to cook, place a large grill pan or skillet over high heat. When the pan is hot, reduce the heat to medium high and spray with oil.

Place the marinated chicken on the grill pan and cook for about 5 minutes. Turn and cook for another 7 to 12 minutes. Serve with peanut sauce.
