These packed good flavour, I did not have a serrano chilli so used a small red thai chilli and put than in the mix, if the DM wasn't dining I would have used 1 for real pow factor. I got 4 skewers with 6 pieces on and 3 with 4 pieces on, my 6 thighes once excess fat was removed weighed just over 700grams and I was hoping to have at least one of skewers with 4 pieces on it to have in some pita bread tomorrow for lunch but the 3 of us ate up the lot. Served with recipe #46493 by ratherbeswimmin' and the sweetness and the slight spicyness of couscous well well with the rich spicy peanut satay.
