Sharing these healthy Chicken Skewers with Peanut Sauce for your new favorite dinner recipe! These are absolutely delicious and gluten-free, dairy-free and you can make them in the oven or on the grill.


  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons filtered water
  • 1/4 cup chopped scallions (the green part)
  • Crushed peanuts and sesame seeds to garnish


  1. Mix together the peanut butter, garlic, coconut aminos, sesame oil, water and scallions in a small bowl (if too thick, warm over saucepan on low heat, stirring frequently until creamy)
  2. In a large bowl or baking dish add the chicken and coat with the sauce and allow it to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight (not 100% necessary but I love doing it so the flavor sets)
  3. Once chicken is marinated, add each piece to skewers
  4. If baking in oven preheat to 400 degrees and bake skewers on a baking sheet (I added an oven-safe cooling rack onto it so it wouldn’t stick) and bake for 18-20 minutes
  5. If grilling, cook over medium heat until the chicken is fully cooked (165 degrees F)
  6. Garnish with extra peanuts and sesame seeds and serve with desired sides or over a salad or slaw
