Place chicken in a large bowl or zipper-top freezer bag.
Add the marinade ingredients, except for the oil and cilantro, to a large zipper freezer bag.
Add chicken to the marinade, zip bag and move around to coat chicken evenly in the marinade. Set aside to let marinate for 20 minutes or in the fridge overnight.
Add the peanut sauce ingredients, except for the water, to a blender or processor and blend sauce until smooth. Can add 1 to 2 tablespoon of the water if sauce needs to be thinner.
Heat up a grill pan or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil, and distribute it around the pan.
When the oil is hot, add the marinated chicken tenders and cook for 4-6 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
Plate chicken strips & drizzle each chicken strip with 1 tablespoon of the peanut sauce, or serve chicken strips & peanut sauce over prepared cauliflower rice. Sprinkle with optional cilantro & optional chopped peanuts or almonds.
