Easy Chicken Satay Recipe
Just like all recipes out there, there are many ways to make one dish. Satay is one of them. I’ve developed a quick and easy recipe that had helped me to make satay more often than not.Clearly, making Chicken Satay in America is not the same as if I was in a Thai kitchen. If you are anything like me, I’ve lived in cities, towns, countries, even islands that require a bit of thinking and planning ahead when I want to cook Thai food. Especially when I want to make Satay, due to the nature of the multiple spices used to make fresh satay and sauces. But luckily, dried spices aren’t as difficult to find.This Easy Chicken Satay recipe is organized in a way to help me want to make more Satay knowing it will not take me a whole half day to prep, marinate, and grill the delicious skewers of meat. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Mix all the ingredients together then add the chicken and let it sit and marinate for 2-4 hours.After 2-4 hours, skewer the meat onto the soaked bamboo sticks and place on a medium high heat grill. Here are two little tips to help prevent the bamboo skewers from burning. 1). Soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before skewing the meat. 2.) Place aluminium foil on the grill at the bottom part of the skewers- as shown in the picture below. Grill the meat for 3-4 minutes on each side 2-4 times until the meat is completely cooked. Make sure to have your grilling mixture and supplies ready. Please check the recipe note at the bottom. In restaurants or sit down food stalls, Satay are typical served with spicy curry peanut sauce, toasted white bread and a side of relish made up of lightly pickled shallots and sliced cucumbers. On the streets however, sauces aren't necessary. Part of the fun of eating Thai street food. Fresh and hot off the grill!
