Directions:

Add the chicken, toss to coat, then cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours or overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to grilling. If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  2. For the peanut dipping sauce: In a medium saucepan, combine the chicken broth, peanut butter, honey, soy sauce, fish sauce, Sriracha, ginger and garlic. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, then let cook, stirring frequently, until the sauce is smooth and thickened, about 6 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and let sit.
  3. When ready to cook the chicken skewers, preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium high. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side. Let sit for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with peanuts and cilantro, then serve warm with peanut sauce and lime wedges.
