Thanks for a simple and effective recipe Sue, which I used for pork fillet rather than chicken. I took about a quater of the sauce, rubbed it into the thinly sliced fillets, then left them stand for about 1 hour before I cooked them. They cooked in about 4 minutes, so no need to baste them. I also used your peanut sauce over gado gado that I made on the night.
What fabulous taste!!! All the taste of traditional satay without a trip to your local Thai restaurant. I did not, however, have the grill out on the day I made this recipe. I chose instead to cut up some boneless, skinless chicken breast and cook until no longer pink. I then added all the peanut sauce and simmered for 10 minutes. I served it with rice and the Oriental Cucumber recipe also found on this website. I'm looking forward to actually trying this recipe on the grill.
These were excellent and easy to prepare. The only thing I did different was to marinate the kabobs in the peanut sauce for a couple of hours. We love the flavor and wanted to infuse the chicken. They were delicious!
