2 tb Molasses (or brown sugar)

To make the marinade, combine the first 7 ingredients in a shallow dish.
Thread the chicken strips onto bamboo skewers in a serpentine fashion.
Place the skewers into the soy sauce mixture and let marinate in the
refrigerator at least 2 hours, although overnight is preferable. Make the
peanut sauce by combining the next 7 ingredients (peanut butter through
garlic) in a saucepan. Season to taste with cayenne pepper. Cook over
moderate heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce is as thick as heavy
cream (about 15 minutes). Transfer to a food processor or blender and

mixture can be made several hours ahead and stored in the refrigerator.
Bring to room temperature before serving. Prepare moderate-hot charcoal
coals or preheat a broiler. Cook the skewered chicken, turning several
times and basting with the marinade, until crispy on the outside but still
moist on the inside, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle grilled chicken with lime
zest and garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve with the peanut sauce for
