Easy Thai Satay Appy (Beef or Chicken)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

I find that RZ has made me much more aware of simple recipe opportunities, esp those found right on the cans of products. I guess you expect them to be so commonly used that you discount them at once. Here is the easiest recipe I have ever seen for satay (beef or chicken). All you really have to do is open a can. I love an easy prep, so this caught my eye. (Time does not include time for skewers to soak or satays to marinate)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 2 hours.
  2. Pierce meat strips onto bamboo skewers. Combine turmeric powder w/350 ml of the coconut milk & marinate for at least 60 min (or longer for more flavor).
  3. Grill satays & use the remaining 50 ml of coconut milk & turmeric mixture to baste during grilling. Serve w/heated satay sauce.
  4. NOTE: I've entered this recipe as an appy w/1 skewer per person. As an entree to serve 2 persons, I'd increase the amt of meat to get 10 skewers to marinate & keep all other ingredients the same.

This is a tasty & easy recipe. The chicken smelled wonderful while grilling! We served it with bottled Thai peanut sauce & sriracha, which were perfect accompaniments. Thanks for posting! ~Sue
