Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make the marinade:

Place all the ingredients for marinade into blender, and process until mixture is smooth.

Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing hard on the solids to break them down.

Let the marinade cool.

Note: the marinade may be made 2 days in advance and kept covered and chilled
2
Make the dipping sauce:

Place all ingredients for the dipping sauce into blender and process until mixture is smooth and transfer to a bowl.

Note: The sauce may be made 2 days in advance and kept covered and chilled
3
Prepare the chicken:

Cut the chicken lengthwise into 1/4" strips, and thread each piece lengthwise onto a skewer and place in a large shallow bowl

Pour the marinade over the chicken, coating the chicken well, and cover and chill for approximately one hour.

Do not marinate for over 3 hours or meat will break down
4
Grill the chicken with the marinade clinging to it on an oiled rack set 5-6 inches over glowing coals for 1-1/2 minute per side, or until chicken is cooked through

If you don't have a grill, you may broil in your oven. Place chicken on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper, place pan about 6"-8" under broiler, and cook 1-1/2 minutes per side until chicken is cooked through

This is a great dish for football parties, but you might need to make a double batch, as they go quickly.
