Grilled Chicken Breasts with Zesty Peanut Sauce

Print
This sweet, savory and slightly spicy recipe starts with our rich Swanson broth.  We combine the broth with ingredients that deliver both flavor and texture.   Marinating the chicken in the broth mixture infuses flavor while tenderizing and adding moisture to the chicken.  Heat the remaining mixture and serve over the grilled chicken to maximize the flavor.  To complete this dish, try serving the chicken and sauce over greens with some shredded carrots and cucumber.

Ingredients

1.75 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth0.5 cup creamy peanut butter0.333 cup soy sauce0.25 cup lime juice2 tablespoons packed brown sugar3 cloves garlic, minced0.5 teaspoon cayenne pepper0.5 teaspoon finely minced fresh ginger root2.5 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

Stir the broth, peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, garlic, cayenne pepper and ginger in a shallow, nonmetallic dish or gallon-size resealable plastic bag.  Remove and reserve 1 1/2 cups broth mixture (you'll be marinating the chicken in what's left in the dish).  Add the chicken to the remaining broth mixture and turn to coat.  Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 to 4 hours.Remove the chicken from the marinade.  Discard the marinade.Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium.  Grill the chicken for 15 minutes or until cooked through, turning the chicken over once halfway through the grilling time.Heat the reserved broth mixture in a 1-quart saucepan.  Cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until the mixture is thickened.  Serve the sauce with the chicken.  Sprinkle with the cilantro.
