Satay is a common item at Thai restaurants. It actually originated from Indonesia and Malaysia. It is a simple dish to serve as an appetizer for parties or BBQs. It can be made with chicken or pork. Satay refers to the method of cooking not the sauce. The meat is skewered then grilled. Meat on a stick. What can be more wonderful?
Servings: 10-15 Skewers
2-2 1/5 lb chicken breast cut into strips
1 packet satay powder (tumeric, sugar, curry powder, soy sauce)
2 tablespoon curry powder
1/3 cup oyster sauce
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1/3 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon salt
10″ bamboo skewers
Soak the skewers for at least 30 mins. This will help prevent the skewers from burning and catching on fire.
Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients and set aside for 30 mins. I’m using Lobo Satay mix. If you cannot find it, add tumeric powder, sugar, soy sauce, and more curry to the rest of the ingredients.
Satay can be eaten alone or with a peanut dipping sauce. I don’t have time to make the sauce. I’ll post later. For now, I’m serving it with a pre-made sauce which is quite tasty.
Skewer the chicken. I use 1-2 strips per bamboo skewer.
Next you will want to grill the chicken skewers on a charcoal or gas grill for several mins until done. If the boyfriend isn’t home to turn on the gas grill for me, I will bake the skewers in the oven for 15-20 mins at 350 then on low broil for 5 mins or so to get a nice char. (I know how to turn on the grill but I prefer not to. I have this weird fear of gas and propane explosions).
Another easy recipe. Enjoy!
