charcoal (traditional) or under the kitchen broiler for 5 to 10 minutes,
turning occasionally, until the chicken is crisp and brown. Serve at once,
with the meat still on the skewers, accompanied by katjang sauce presented
separately in a bowl. Serves 4.

Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and cook the shallots (or scallions) and
garlic 3 to 4 minutes, until they are soft and transparent but not brown..
Add the chicken stock and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the ground
peanuts, soy sauce, molasses, lime juice, ginger, and chilies or cayenne.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Allow to
cool slightly before serving.
