  2. Cook the chicken on a grill or nonstick pan (coat with cooking spray) over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes per side, until fully cooked through.
  3. Make peanut sauce by combining all ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth. Serve immediately with chicken skewers, and garnish with green onions.
