Low Carb Peanut Chicken Skewers

If you follow me, you know I have been on a low carb diet. I love being able to think of new ways to eat that reduces the number of carbs. I love chicken so I need lots of recipes that are low carb and delicious.

Grilled chicken is always a favorite. However, I loved the Low Carb Pork Roast with Peanut Sauce I made and wondered about adding peanut sauce to my grilled chicken. Just make sure to get the lowest carb natural peanut butter you can find. 

This recipe is easy and you can use boneless chicken thighs or boneless breasts. I had breasts on hand so that is what I used.

Even if you are not on a low carb diet, I think you will enjoy this chicken. I served it with Low Carb Cauliflower Grits or (if you are NOT on low carb) you could make quinoa, rice, or mashed potatoes.
