Chicken Sate With Peanut Sauce

READY IN: 42mins
Recipe by SharleneW

It took me a while to get around to trying this recipe I clipped from Cooking Light, but it is a winner! I will be making again and again. Despite the long list of ingredients, it actually goes together fairly quickly. Both the sauce and the marinade are only mildly spicy.

Great tasting chicken sate! I made these last night for our New Years Eve party and they were a huge hit! I used 4 large chicken breasts sliced fairly thin and tripled the marinade recipe. Due to availability in my pantry, I used small sweet onions for the shallots, light brown sugar, and left out the fish sauce and cloves. I let the chicken marinate for about 5 hours, then cooked the skewers on the BBQ. The chicken really soaked up the sweet/spicy flavors! Before our guests had even arrived, my DH came into the kitchen with a skewer raving about how good they were. I just bought bottled peanut sauce, but my DH said it was so good without it, so I didn't even put it out. Next time I'll make them for dinner and use the peanute sauce, because that sounds so good to me! Thanks for a fab recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler.
  2. To prepare sate, place first 13 ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Place shallot mixture and chicken in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 10 minutes.
  3. To prepare peanut sauce, combine peanut butter with next 6 ingredients (through Sriracha) in a medium bowl; stir well with a whisk. (I found it was much easier to mix together after I microwaved for about 45 seconds to soften the peanut butter a little).
  4. Remove chicken from bag and discard marinade. Thread chicken on 8 (12-inch) wooden skewers. Place skewers on the rack of a broiler or roasting pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 12 minutes or until done, turning once or twice as needed.
  5. Serve with peanut sauce.
