3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved (abour 3 1/4 lbs.)
1/2 c. chunky peanut butter
1/2 c. peanut oil
1/4 c. white wine vinegar
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice(2 lemons)
8 parsley sprigs, chopped(1 1/2 T. dried)
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp. finely chopped gingerroot
green onions cut into 2 inch lengths

Cut each chicken breast half into 8 pieces. Combine ingredients for the marinade. Add the chicken and marinate 2 to 3 hours or overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking.
Preheat grill to medium high heat. Soak wooden skewers in water for 15 to 20 minutes so the ends won't burn on the grill.
Thread 6 - 8 pieces of chicken on each skewer. Add green onions to each end of the skewers.
Grill uncovered for 8 to 10 minutes turning once.

I have substituted the following on occasion if I didn't have the exact ingredient on hand, with good results:
