3. Soak chicken in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for up to 60 minutes.

4. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

5. Place chicken, rind end first, on the skewers.

6. Sauté garlic, ginger and onion in peanut oil until onions are slightly browned. Add Florida Orange Juice, coriander and peanut butter. Simmer until thickened (about 2 minutes).
