Chicken Sate with a West Texas Flair


  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into strips

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce

  • 2 tbsp honey

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp ground cumin

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


  1. Marinate the Chicken: In a bowl, mix together peanut butter, soy sauce, honey, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Add chicken strips to the marinade, ensuring they are well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (overnight for best flavor).

  2. Skewer the Chicken: Preheat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Thread marinated chicken strip.

  3. Grill the Sate: Grill chicken skewers for about 5-7 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through and has nice grill marks.

  4. Serve and Enjoy: Remove from grill and serve hot, garnished with chopped peanuts, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Pair with a side of rice or a fresh salad for a complete West Texas meal!

🏠💸 Now, let's talk about the hidden costs of renting. Many people believe that renting is the more cost-effective choice, allowing them to bypass the initial investment of homeownership. However, the truth is, renting comes with its own set of financial implications.

🏠💸 When you rent, every payment you make goes towards your landlord's investment, not yours. Essentially, it's like paying 100% interest, as your hard-earned money doesn't contribute to building equity or ownership.

🔑 Owning a home, on the other hand, is an investment in your future. With each mortgage payment, you're one step closer to building equity and securing your financial stability. Plus, you have the freedom to personalize your space and create a true sense of home.

✨ So, why settle for temporary housing when you can invest in a lifetime of memories? Let's work together to turn your homeownership dreams into reality. From the vibrant streets of Wolfforth to the serene neighborhoods of Seminole, I'm here to guide you home.
