Grilled Indonesian Chicken Satay

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Cilantro in Canada

This recipe was given to me by my neighbour who is one of the nicest people I know. She is originally from Indonesia and moved to Canada a few years ago. I am guessing at serving sizes, and cooking times so please adjust amounts to what you think you need. I am also guessing at the amount of oil added to the basting sauce as I was told just to add a little oil to make it easier to baste with. You may need more basting sauce depending on how much you put on while cooking and I would double or triple the sauce if you have more than a pound of meat.

I used chicken and pork (on separate skewers) about 750 grams total (which fed 4 of us with fried rice) and served with Tisme's recipe #297183 (Simple Satay Sauce) and made for an enjoyable meal. The DH cooked on the flat plate of an indoor electric grill and was very much enjoyed with the DH commenting definately better than some others. Thank you Cilantro in Canada, made for Invitation to Indonesia Tag Game.
