Grilled Peanut Chicken (Egg-Free, Gluten-Free)


Cate O’Malley, Get Your Grill On. – I tend to be picky about mixing sweet and savory things, but putting peanut butter in a savory dish is usually an automatic winner with me. When I spied a recipe for Grilled Peanut Chicken on AllRecipes recently, there was no question as to what would be hitting the table.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Incredibly simple to make, it smelled insanely good during the process and produced very moist chicken. With cooling temps, the recipe made for a perfect, quick weeknight meal outside on the deck. Would I make it again? I’m not sure, but only because we’ve had a few others already that I like a bit better.
