  1. Mix the powdered peanut butter with a few tablespoons of water.
  2. Add the low-sodium soy sauce, raw honey, and Sriracha. Mix, and set it aside.
  3. Season the chicken breast tenders with cumin, sea salt, and pepper. Carefully skewer each tender with a wooden stick, and place the kabob over a microwave-safe bowl.
  4. Spray the meat with olive oil, then cook in the microwave for 2-1/2 minutes.
  5. Check on the chicken to ensure it is not burning, then cook it for another 2-1/2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Once the chicken is completely cooked, spice it up with some red pepper flakes.
