Chicken tenderloins seasoned with simple spices are grilled and then served with a delicious peanut sauce for dipping! Serve as an appetizer or main dish for your next meal!
I am just getting over a nasty cold! My first ever summer sniffles, soar throat and cough! What the heck?! Guys, it’s Alan’s fault. Every summer he gets a cold and I escape the virus, but when I woke up in the middle of the night to his coughing fit I knew I was doomed and wouldn’t escape the misery. For a good week I battled the bug!
Luckily I wasn’t out of commission the whole time I was fighting the cold. I was sequestered in the house for a full 3 days though, but was able to take advantage of the down time by getting some extra sleep and lounge time with my fur babies. I still had an appetite, but wasn’t in the mood to spend any time in the kitchen. We ordered out a couple of times, but when I was feeling better Alan grilled these skewers.
These chicken skewers aren’t your typical immune boosting foods like this Turkey Rice Soup that you might crave when fighting a cold, but they are quick to make and the peanut sauce is the same delicious sauce I used in this Whole Wheat Pasta dish! That sauce alone will perk anyone up! This is a great appetizer, but I often serve them as the main dish and will add a couple of sides like Broccoli Slaw and Sticky Rice.
It was so nice to have a satisfying homemade meal after being cooped up, and there is a natural bonus ingredient in the sauce that I didn’t realize would be beneficial for colds. Those red pepper flakes in the peanut sauce sure can help with decongestion! 🙂
