Chicken Satay Skewers and Peanut Dipping Sauce

27 Mar

A few weeks ago we had a glimpse of spring T-shirt and short weather so the first thing I did was pull out the BBQ. I decided to make Chicken Satay Skewers based on this recipe from Eclectic Recipes.

I took pictures and had every intention of posting… and then completely forgot. Going through the photos on the camera I rediscovered them. And now that it’s the more March appropriate 50 degrees, I’m longing for our flirt with spring. So here’s the recipe to egg on more spring weather.

Chicken Satay Skewers and Peanut Dipping Sauce

Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut in 8 strips
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon curry paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon fish sauce

Peanut Sauce

  • 1/4 cup coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 8 bamboo skewers

Directions

Marinade:
  1. Combine 1/2 cup coconut milk, 2 teaspoons lime juice, 1 teaspoon curry paste, 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil and 1/4 teaspoon fish sauce in a large bowl. Mix well.
  2. Place cut up chicken in marinade. Then skewer the individual pieces chicken and place in on lined cookie sheet.  Marinate for 2 – 3 hours–or as long as you have time.
  • Marinade: The recipe originally wasn’t written very well to indicate a marinade. The first time I tried it I didn’t realize this, so I only had 30 minutes and it came out just as tasty.
  • Skewer Tip: skewer each piece with two skewers to that they are easier to turn.

Grill:

  1. Pre-heat grill.
  2. Place chicken on grill and cook until done, about 15 – 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken breast has reached 165 degrees.
  3. Meanwhile, mix ingredients for peanut dipping sauce.
  4. Serve chicken with peanut dipping sauce.

I served as main dish with rice and salad. It was so delicious and easy that the next time we had a guest for dinner I made it again and it was a hit. Could also work well as appetizer or side.
