Chicken Satay aka grilled chicken skewers is the easiest recipe, marinated overnight with spices, grilled to perfection and served with peanut dipping sauce.
What is Satay?
Satay is a dish of skewered, seasoned and grilled meat, served with a sauce. It is a dish originated from Indonesia and popular in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand.
Satay consist of different types of meats, diced or sliced chicken, mutton, goat, beef, fish, pork, other meats, or even tofu; the more authentic version of this recipe uses skewers from the midrib of the coconut palm frond, although bamboo skewers are often used.
These are barbecued or grilled over a charcoal or wood fire, then served with various spicy seasonings. Satay can be served in various sauces, however most often they are served in a combination of peanut and soy sauce. Hence, peanut sauce is often called satay sauce.
Chicken Satay Peanut Sauce
Though you can buy any peanut dipping sauce from our local market, but making your own homemade chicken satay with peanut sauce is something different, So let have a look at the ingredients you need.
- 1 cup smooth peanut butter (You can also use the crunchy ones)
- 1/3 cup soy sauce, low sodium
- 1 teaspoon Sriracha
- 2 limes juiced and zested
- 1-inch piece fresh ginger
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- Gather all the ingredients to your grinder/mixer and grind until smooth.
What to Serve with Chicken Satay?
I like to serve this Satay Chicken or Thai Chicken Satay over steamed veggies and rice, or cilantro lime rice. This Chicken Satay is a great appetizer or dinner entrée.
If you are wooden skewers, make sure to soak them before threading the chicken on them and barbecue process. Soaking the skewers will ensure that they don’t catch fire and burn. Place the skewers in a container large. Cover with water and let soak for up to 4 hours or at least 20 minutes. Drain well, thread on the chicken, and grill.
