Yes, the preparation took longer than the recipe said, but what a knockout. Everyone raved!
This was very tastey and pretty easy to make. I found the sauce a little 'chunky' because of the onion. Perhaps I didn't mince enough. However, this tasted great. I hate grilling on skwers, no matter how much I soak they still burn. So I grilled the chicken and then carefully placed it on skewers. That seemed to work well too. Nice little kick from the red pepper flakes.
Great party fare! The chicken was nice and flavorful. The sauce made too much and was way too peanut buttery; I would cut the peanut butter in half next time. We added the whole can of coconut milk, extra lime juice and about 2 T. brown sugar to improve the sauce. With tweaking it'll be 5 stars next time. I served the satay with cucumber, celery sticks and plain toast as they do in Thai restaurants. Fun food for a crowd, very much enjoyed!
This is a great recipe. I like it.
This satay was pretty simple, with easy to find ingredients (you can't get lemon grass or the like anywhere near here, and I've seen several other recipes with that as an ingredient). It was very tasty, even my picky 4 year old would eat it......yum. Cut back to two shallots, and minced the gingerroot instead of grating. Also added 2 T of lime juice to the marinade, it added more citrus flavor. This will become a regular at our house, THANKS!
I made this as an app for a party I had. Since it was snowing out, I just grilled the chic on the ole Foreman (without the sticks) Everyone loved it!
