Sweet, spicy, peanut-y chicken tenders make an amazing party dish, and the leftovers are delicious served over salad for lunch the next day. You'll love the combination of peanut butter powder, barbecue sauce, canned chipotle chiles, and spicy chili powder that you coat the chicken with as you're grilling them. Utilizing the grill or a grill pan means that the chicken will be cooked through and ready to go in just about 5 minutes. Top the chicken with some fresh chopped scallions and use whatever sauce you have leftover as a dip.
