Recipe by Pets'R'us
This is what we call a sweet sate and the chili paste that I add does not really belong in this recipe. Can be made with chicken breasts and then it is called Sate Ayam. Here it usually served with a ketjap peanut sauce and prawn crackers, it can be an appetizer, snack or a side dish when part of an Indonesian rijsttafel. If you cannot get the sweet soy sauce, use regular and add some brown sugar. Marinating time is not included.

This is a great recipe and would be good for parties. I used the 2 tspns of sambal oelek and we just had it with rice and cucumber sambal. It is in my cookbook and will do it again.
