- 1 lb chicken tenders
- Chosen Foods Avocado Oil
- salt & pepper
Almond Sesame Sauce
- ¼ cup creamy almond butter
- ½ lime juiced
- 2 tsp coconut aminos or gluten-free tamari
- 2 tbsp Oi! Toasted Sesame Oil
- ¼ cup canned organic full-fat coconut milk
- pinch of red pepper flakes adjust to taste
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- 1/8 tsp ground pepper
Season the chicken tenders liberally with avocado oil and salt and pepper, to taste. Thread the tenders through skewers, aiming for one piece per skewer, as to not to crowd them. Cook over a high-heat grill pan (indoors or outdoors) until browned on both sides.
While the skewers are cooking, make the Almond Sesame Sauce by combining all the ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk liberally until mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve alongside the skewers as a dipping sauce or drizzle to coat.
