Hey, love chicken on a stick? How about some peanut sauce to go with it? Whip up this super easy Thai chicken satay at home with just a few simple ingredients!
Chicken satay is a popular dish in Southeast Asian cuisine, particularly in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand.
Pat dry the chicken cubes so there is no excess moisture. Take chicken in a mixing bowl.
Add all the ingredients of the marinade to the bowl and mix well.
Cover and marinate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours.
Thread the chicken strips onto the wooden skewers. (Tip: Soak the wooden skewers in the water a few hours in advance to avoid burning.)
While the chicken is marinating, make the peanut sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients of peanut butter until smooth.
Use a blender if using chunky peanut butter. Peanut sauce is ready to set aside.
Heat the grill pan or just any non-stick pan. Brush or spray it with a little oil. Grill the chicken skewers for 3-4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and slightly charred.
Serve the chicken satay with the peanut sauce drizzled on it and enjoy!
