Add zing to chicken kabobs

This spicy Thai treat is easy to make using a good quality Thai peanut sauce. My secret for cooking these kabobs is to leave about 1/4 inch between the ingredients on kabob skewers. This gives the heat a chance to reach all around the food. If you have short skewers, use a few more.

Helpful hints

• Zucchini can be used instead of yellow squash.

• Remove food from skewers and serve over the rice. Then drizzle Thai Peanut Sauce on top.


• Preheat boiler.

• Prepare ingredients.

• Start kabobs.

• While kabobs broil, make rice.
