I let these marinate overnight and the flavor was exceptional. I did prefer to cook these longer than called for until the meat was golden and still a bit juicy. I prefer my meat drier.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix soy sauce, chilli paste, garlic, oil and sugar.
  2. Cut chicken into 36 thin strips and marinate in a bowl with the soy sauce mixture, turning to ensure chicken is coated.
  3. Thread chicken pieces on to the bamboo skewers, line skewers up on a parchment/foil-lined baking tray and keep covered in the fridge until ready to cook.
  4. Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F.
  5. Bake the chicken skewers for 10-15mins in the hottest part of the oven (maybe 4-6" from top heating element).
  6. When done, remove the tray from oven and squeeze juice of 1 lime over the chicken.
  7. Serving suggestion: Heat 1 1/2 cup of your favorite satay sauce and place 2 tablespoon of the sauce in each shot glass (you'll need 12); pop 3 skewers in each glass and a slice of lime onto each rim.
  8. Satay sauce suggestion: recipe #69191 Spicy Peanut Sauce (you'll need about at least 5x the recipe) or any storebought satay sauce.
