I actually did the preparation the day before, sliced the chicken and coated it, left it in the fridge overnight. Made the Satay Miso sauce, ditto. DH soaked the skewers the next day, then threaded the chicken, while I was at work. So when I came home, it was just a case of steaming the rice, heating through the sauce and cooking the chicken. They were excellent! I wasn't sure how DD2 would like them, but she loved them, and the sauce, and DH was Very happy, we'll be making THIS again! Thanks Sonya, for introducing me to something new :D
