This is one of my all time favorite chicken meals. The recipe is from Hurricane Restaurant which is located in Kennebunkport, ME. The marinade and peanut sauce are both easy to make, but the depth of flavor would never suggest that! I am going to apologize in advance for the lack luster photographs… I was just so excited to dig in that I lost all patience.
Grilled Chicken with Peanut Butter Sauce (serves 7-8)
1 cup lemon juice
1 cup soy sauce
6 tablespoons chopped garlic
3 lbs chicken breasts
Combine all ingredients. Place chicken in the marinade. Let it sit for as long as possible so the flavors meld together.
Char-grill until done. Serve alongside the sauce.
12 tablespoons peanut butter
6 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 tablespoon crushed red pepper
6 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 cup heavy cream
Mix the butter, peanut butter, and red pepper in a saucepan over low heat until melted. Mix all the rest of the other ingredients together. Slowly stream into peanut butter mixture. Keep at low heat until everything is warm.
You can add more sugar or crushed red pepper depending on the level of heat you prefer. If you put the chicken on skewers instead of leaving the breasts whole this is an excellent side dish.
