Cashew Lime Chicken Satay {Gluten Free}

This is a spin off from our Chicken Almond Satay with the switch up of a few things, namely substituting cashews for the almonds.  It turned out to be very tasty and nutty and the dipping sauce is just the right balance of savory and sweet.  This chicken pairs well with our fresh Vegetable Spring Rolls for a fun Make Your Own Take Out dinner at home.  Enjoy!

Recipe: (makes ~10 chicken tenders)
10-12 chicken tenders

Marinade Ingredients:
1 cup water
3-4 Tablespoons lime juice (~2 limes juiced)
2 Tablespoons tamari sauce
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup cashews
1 Tablespoon light olive oil
1/4 teaspoon roasted sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Dipping Sauce Ingredients:
2 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoons lime juice (~1 lime)
1 Tablespoon tamari
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 Tablespoon light olive oil
1/8 teaspoon roasted sesame oil
1/3 teaspoon sea salt
1/3 c cashews
7 Tablespoons packed brown sugar

1. Combine all Marinade ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.   Place chicken tenders in a large bowl and cover with marinade, for up to one hour
2. Remove chicken from marinade (discard marinade) and grill on a hot grill or grill pan, flipping once until it reaches an internal temperature of 165'F.
3. Combine all the dipping sauce ingredients in a clean blender and blend until smooth.  Serve along side hot skewers.

This recipe looks easy enough to make every week -and I just may do that!! :) Let me explain: I am 6 months pregnant and craving Thai nearly by the hour, but we have moved to Kentucky where they do not seem to have any Thai restaurants at ALL, so I am left wanting. My husband and I had a favorite restaurant we used to frequent before the move, and Chicken Satay with the cucumber salad was our very fave!! Thank you, I will be making this!

Hi Taste USA! Thanks for commenting. I know what you mean about finding good Thai. We moved last year from California to the Midwest and it's hard to find here. This recipe is easy and here's another we like that's also pretty easy.
Congratulations on your pregnancy! Great to expose baby to lots of great flavors. :-) Take care, Kelly
