Part of the reason why this recipe is so easy is because the chicken is popped under the broiler to cook, and therefore only takes a few minutes. The marinade that the chicken sits in before cooking really gives the chicken a lot of flavor, while the dipping sauce is a healthy combination of peanut butter and soy sauce, but gets some saltiness from the hoisin sauce and a little acidity from the lime juice. It really is a perfect combination and a super easy weeknight meal. Enjoy!
