Thai Chicken Satay with Sticky Rice and Asian Spinach Salad

These chicken skewers are the perfect balance between sweet and spicy.  The pineapple caramelizes on the grill creating a lovely backdrop of citrusy sweetness.  But before the sweetness totally runs away, it gets grounded with Sriracha and spices.  Oh, and did I mention the peanut sauce?  It's not cloying or too much.....it's all sorts of just right.  And, trust me, you'll be lickin' your fingers as you head back for seconds!
