We really enjoyed our dinner tonight! Thank you so much. I made this as directed. The peanut marinade/sauce is great! (I did use "creamy"... that's all I had). I do plan to use it when I make chicken satay for Labor Day. I have to admit, we were low on propane for our grill, so I baked them in the oven and switched it up to broil for the last couple of minutes when I basted. Worked out fine! I served the remaining reserved marinade/sauce at the dinner table. I served this with Recipe #505768, and it was a good pairing. Hubby actually put his skewered pork into his rice bowl to eat it. Thank you for posting this delightful dish. Will definitely make it again. (Made for ZWT9)
