    Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce
  • 1 cup / 250 mL Carb Options Italian Vinaigrette Dressing
  • 4 tsp / 20 mL soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp / 2 mL ground ginger
  • 1 lb / 500 g boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips

  • 1 tbsp / 15 mL finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 tsp / 1 mL crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

For marinade, in medium bowl, whisk together dressing, soy sauce and ginger. In large resealable plastic bag, pour 1/4 cup (50 mL) marinade over chicken and turn to coat. Seal bag and marinate in refrigerator, turning occasionally, up to 3 hours. Refrigerate 1/4 cup (50 mL) remaining marinade.

Meanwhile, in small bowl whisk together remaining 1/4 cup (125 mL) marinade, creamy peanut spread, green onions, red pepper flakes and Splenda sweetener; set aside for dipping sauce. Soak 12 (6 inch/15 cm) wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.

Remove chicken from marinade, discarding used marinade. Thread chicken on skewers. Grill or broil chicken, turning once and brushing frequently with 1/4 cup (50 mL) reserved marinade, until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve with peanut dipping sauce.
