Dumbo's Chicken with Peanut Dipping Sauce

Dumbo's Chicken Dippers with Peanut Sauce

Peanuts are Dumbo's favorite treat, and this tangy peanut dipping sauce is sure to be a favorite with your pack of preschoolers.

You'll need:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded 1/2 inch thick
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter*
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Thai chili garlic sauce, optional
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest, for garnish
  • Fresh cilantro, for garnish
Health/safety note: Peanut butter is not recommended for children under 3 years of age. Always remember to check with grown-ups regarding food allergies. Instructions:

1. Rinse chicken breasts and pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons lime juice.

2. Prepare a charcoal fire or heat a gas grill to medium-high, and oil the grates. Grill the chicken 4-5 minutes per side, turning once, or until the chicken is cooked through.

3. For the peanut sauce, place peanut butter in a small bowl and stir in hot water, hoisin sauce, sesame oil and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Let kids stir the sauce while you add the ingredients.Continue stirring until the sauce is smooth.

4. For an optional bit of spice, add 1/2 teaspoon Thai chili garlic sauce. Adjust quantities depending on your family's taste buds. If they can handle the heat, add a bit more chili garlic sauce; you can skip this step for delicate palates.

5. Sprinkle cooked chicken with 1-2 tablespoons lime juice and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro. (Kitchen shears are great for snipping up fresh herbs; let preschoolers help using child-safe kitchen scissors). Garnish peanut sauce with lime zest.
