  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine crunchy peanut butter, coriander, salsa, dark brown sugar, soy sauce, salt, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic and spring onions; mix well. Add chicken to the marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  2. While the chicken is marinating, soak bamboo skewers in water for one hour so they will not burn on the barbecue.
  3. Preheat the barbecue to a high heat. Or preheat your oven to grill.
  4. Thread chicken onto skewers like a snake, and in between each loop add a piece of green pepper.
  5. Barbecue skewers, turning once, for 4 to 6 minutes; or grill, until just browned and cooked through.
