Using a sharp knife, slice each chicken breast and fillet into 6 equal strips, crosswise. Place a piece of plastic wrap over 6 chicken strips. Using a meat mallet, lightly pound the chicken and beef out thin. Season the pounded meat pieces with Essence.
In a food processor, combine the peanuts, sesame oil, vegetable oil, soy sauce, cilantro, and jalapenos. Puree the mixture until smooth. Season the mixture with salt and pepper. Thread the chicken strips through the wooden skewers. Thread the fillet through the wooden skewers. Place the skewers in a large glass rectangular dish. Pour the marinade over the skewers. Using a small pastry brush, coat each skewer completely. Marinate the skewers overnight. Preheat the grill. Grill the skewers in batches. Grill the skewers for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove the skewers from the grill and place on a large serving platter. Garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil and chopped cilantro. Serve warm.

Here is a simple peanut butter dipping sauce
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup soy sauce

In separate bowl combine peanut butter, soy sauce, and water. Whisk until smooth. Add additional cayenne pepper and limejuice.
I like to add the cilantro and sesame oil to give it more flavors.
