Chicken Satay Skewers with Almond Butter Sauce
This recipe makes a great party appetizer any time of year but we think it doubles as the ideal mid-week dinner. To save time on a busy night, use chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts (no cutting required) and almond butter instead of peanut butter (it's just as creamy and delicious, and is better for you.) Serve it on skewers or piled on top of a big leafy salad, and you're set. Get the recipe HERE.

Just ball up the foil and toss it in the trash when you’re done.” Get the recipe HERE.
