Chicken Satay With Peanut dipping sauce


  1. Chicken - Breast of 1 whole chicken sliced into long thin strips. Slice it at a diagonal after freezing the chicken breast.
  2. Soy sauce - 1.5 tbsp
  3. Honey - 1/2 tsp
  4. Garlic - 6 cloves crushed and chopped very fine
  5. Chillies - 5 chopped very fine
  6. Ginger - 1/2 tsp chopped very fine
  7. Spring onion - 1 tbsp chopped fine
  8. vinegar - 1 tsp
  9. Vegetable oil - 1 tbsp + 2 tbsp for grilling /sauteing

For the peanut sauce :

  1. Peanut butter - 2 tbsp
  2. Coconut milk - 4 tbsp
  3. Chilly garlic sauce - 1 tbsp (or you can use 1 finely chopped ripe red chilly and 2 cloves of garlic)


Marinate the chicken strips in all of the ingredients mentioned in the chicken section except for the 2 tbsp of oil.(Keep that oil aside for sauteing/grilling)
Refrigerate and leave for an hour .
Meanwhile soak the bamboo skewers in water and keep ready.
Thread the chicken strips onto the skewers ,just like how you would stitch with a needle, brush the marinade on it and prepare a grill or saute pan.
I sauteed it on my chappathi tawa.
Heat the pan on high and add 1 tbsp oil and spread the oil around.(you might have to cook it in 2 batches)
Place the chicken skewers on the pan

Grill until cooked - The chicken pieces are sliced very thin so it only takes 2-3 minutes to get cooked.
Overcooking it makes the satay dry .Depending on the thickness of your satay cook the chicken until done.
serve hot with peanut dipping sauce and salad .

To make the peanut sauce - combine the peanut butter, coconut milk and chilly garlic sauce in a microwave safe dish or sauce pan and stir well.
Once the ingredients are well combined , cook or microwave until it has thickened . (About 2 minutes in microwave stirring in between).

  1. Really strange as i just made some of these the other day with the the two sauces and was curious as to how to eat them with the cucumber sauce as its not really a dipping dip and you magically come up with a post on how to eat satay.
