Expert Tips

Peanut sauces can be spicy. Check out the ingredients on the label before buying to get an idea of how hot the sauce is.

When placing chicken on skewers, keep the skewers centered in the chicken slices as much as possible so the slices have less exposure to the grill surface to avoid burning.
