Chicken Satay

Recipe by Rita1652
READY IN: 14mins




  • Cut thin (1/4-inch) slices that run the length of the chicken breast (each slice will be 1 inch by 4 inches by 1/4 inch approximately) to get 16 slices.
  • If you find it difficult to cut thinly through fresh meat, leave it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes to harden slightly and then slice.
  • Place the chicken strips in a plastic freezer bag.
  • Add all the marinating ingredients and gently toss until well mixed.
  • Let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 2 to 24 hours.
  • When ready to cook the satays, stir chicken in its marinade and then thread each slice onto a skewer, working the skewer in and out of the meat, down the middle of the slice, so that it stays in place during grilling.
  • Baste the chicken with oil or coconut milk and grill on a barbecue or under the broiler.
  • Cook for not much more than 2 minutes each side, turning fairly often to prevent unnecessary burning, and baste one more time with oil or coconut milk.
  • The satays are done when they have turned golden brown and crispy along the edges.
  • Serve on lettuce leaves, decorated with fresh cilantro leaves, and accompanied by a small bowl of Peanut Sauce on the side.
