Instructions
  1. Whisk together all ingredients except chicken. Place chicken in a glass or plastic dish and pour approximately one third of marinade over chicken and toss to coat. Add a little more marinade if needed to coat well. Cover chicken and remaining marinade and chill from 1-4 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to medium. Grill chicken thighs for appoximately 7-8 minutes per side, adjusting heat if needed as the sugar in the marinade can burn. Meanwhile, place a disposable medium size foil pan on grill and add remaining marinade. Heat, stirring often until bubbling,thick and glossy.
  3. When chicken is cooked add to marinade pan and toss to coat with sauce. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

Alternatively, you can use a regular saucepan on the stove to heat the marinade until thick and glossy.  Pour over chicken in serving dish and serve immediately.

Instructions
  1. Cutting against the grain, slice chicken breast into thin strips. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, oyster sauce, rice wine vinegar and chill paste.
  3. Cook noodles as per package directions and allow to drain in colander while proceeding.
  4. Heat approximately 1 tbsp of oil over high heat in a wok or large skillet with sides. Once hot add half the chicken and cook, stirring once or twice for 3-5 minutes until chicken is no longer pink and starts to brown. Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining chicken.
  5. Add a little more oil to the pan and sauté garlic for 1 minute, stirring often. Add chicken broth and celery. Allow to cook for 2-3 minutes until most of the broth has evaporated, stirring occasionally. Stir in red peppers and sauté for 1 minute. Reduce heat and stir in peanut sauce, chicken, noodles, half of the peanuts and half of the green onion. Toss to combine, adding a little more chicken broth if needed. Divide among serving dishes and top with peanuts and green onion. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

I used thick noodles for this recipe, but feel free to use your favourite size.  Fresh Chinese noodles can be found in the produce section of most supermarkets.

Instructions
Beef Skewers
  1. If using wooden skewers, soak according to package directions. Lay flank steak flat and cut into 1/4" slices across the grain. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together remaining ingredients. Add sliced beef and toss to completely coat each piece. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.
  3. Preheat grill to medium high. Thread beef slices onto skewers. Spray grills with non stick spray if desired to prevent beef from over sticking to the grills.
  4. Grill beef skewers for approximately 7-8 minutes, turning once or twice to crisp up the edges. Serve with peanut sauce.
Peanut Sauce
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and warm over medium heat. Do not boil or the peanut butter will separate. Garnish with additional chopped peanuts and serve with beef skewers.
