Number of Servings: 8


    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 tablespoon minced shallots
    1 large clove garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
    1 1/2 cups chicken broth
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    1 cup creamy peanut butter
    1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    Vegetable spray
    1 scallion, chopped


Heat the oil in a medium saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the shallots and cook for 1 minute, stirring often, then add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 more minute. Add the chicken broth, soy sauce and red pepper flakes and raise the heat to medium-high to bring to a boil. Add the peanut butter and whisk carefully until smooth and incorporated. Remove from heat and add the salt. This sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance and kept in the refrigerator. Reheat before serving.

Heat the grill to medium-high and spray the chicken breasts with vegetable spray. Grill, breast side down, for 7 to 8 minutes, until golden brown. Turn over and brush each breast with 2 teaspoons of the sauce. Continue to cook for 7 to 8 more minutes until golden brown and done. Remove from the grill, sprinkle with scallions and serve with the remaining peanut sauce.
