Trim the fat off the chicken thighs. Cut into cubes (¾" x ¾"). Place the chicken cubes in a large bowl. Add the rest of the marinade ingredients and mix well until everything is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours but preferably overnight.
In a bowl: combine soy sauce, sugar, chili, lime, ginger, peanut butter & hot water (make sure to add the hot water last). Mix until the sauce is smooth. Add more hot to achieve your desired consistency. Set aside.
Soak the 6" skewers in water for 1 hour. Thread the chicken into the skewers. Recommended: brush chicken with oil.
Preheat the grill to medium-high. Place chicken skewers on the grill and cook for 12-16 mintues. Turn the skewers occasionally, until they are fully cooked (internal should be about 165°F). Transfer to a plate and tent with aluminum foil until ready to serve.
Add crushed roasted peanuts & red peppers to the sauce. Garnish with cilantro.
