"This adaptation of Indonesian Chicken Satay (found on the net) is very quick to cook - serve peanut sauce on the side! The prep time doesn't include marinating."

Ready In:




  • Cut the chicken lengthwise into 1/4 inch (1/2 cm) strips- you'll get about 4 or 5 strips from each breast.
  • Thread these strips zigzag fashion onto bamboo skewers, about 3 or 4 strips per skewer.
  • Don't squash the zigzags too tightly- leave them loosely threaded so the marinade can soak in.
  • Arrange the skewers in a glass baking dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine the marinade ingredients& pour over the chicken skewers in the baking dish; allow to marinate, refrigerated, for at least one hour, but no longer than three or else the chicken will disintegrate.
  • Meanwhile, make the dipping sauce.
  • In a blender combine all the sauce ingredients and blend until completely smooth.
  • Pour into a small bowl.
  • Preheat the barbecue, then grill chicken skewers over medium heat, brushing lightly with the marinade, about 5 minutes per side.
  • The chicken should be cooked through but not dried out.

    Perhaps it was the curry powder that I used, but this recipe just didn't seem to have a lot of flavor. After marinating for a little over an hour, the chicken was still missing something. I thought that the peanut sauce would provide the missing flavor, but we still didn't care for this. I am sorry. This wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't make it again with adding some additional herbs or spices to the marinade.

    Wow! This was a new taste for my family, but we all agree 5*! This was so easy to do. I followed the instructions exactly, cooked for exactly 5 minutes on each side, and was rewarded with nice, juicy, flavorful chicken strips. The dipping sauce is wonderful too. I left in marinade for 1 1/4 hours & that was plenty because my chicken was just starting to get mushy. Next time I will leave in marinade only 1 hour tops. Thanks Country Lady!


In the words of Tracy Byrd, "I'm from the country & I like it that way"!! On May 1, 2008 my husband and I started a new adventure. We'll be living in a 37 foot RV while our new home is under construction. Its out in the country on a dead end dirt road with lots of trees. For the next 4 months or so, most meals will be cooked on the BBQ and life will be full of challenges! We love spending quality time with our friends & family - especially the grandkids!!
