Ready In:
1hr 10mins




  • Mix soy sauce, chilli paste, garlic, oil and sugar.
  • Cut chicken into 36 thin strips and marinate in a bowl with the soy sauce mixture, turning to ensure chicken is coated.
  • Thread chicken pieces on to the bamboo skewers, line skewers up on a parchment/foil-lined baking tray and keep covered in the fridge until ready to cook.
  • Preheat oven to 190°C/375°F.
  • Bake the chicken skewers for 10-15mins in the hottest part of the oven (maybe 4-6" from top heating element).
  • When done, remove the tray from oven and squeeze juice of 1 lime over the chicken.
  • Serving suggestion: Heat 1 1/2 cup of your favorite satay sauce and place 2 tablespoon of the sauce in each shot glass (you'll need 12); pop 3 skewers in each glass and a slice of lime onto each rim.
  • Satay sauce suggestion: recipe #69191 Spicy Peanut Sauce (you'll need about at least 5x the recipe) or any storebought satay sauce.

  1. I let these marinate overnight and the flavor was exceptional. I did prefer to cook these longer than called for until the meat was golden and still a bit juicy. I prefer my meat drier.
  2. This was so good and so easy to make! We ate it for dinner, but it would be an awesome appetizer as well. I served it with Pet’s Parmesan Lemon Rice (#45227) and used your satay sauce from your other recipe. Our three year old asked for seconds! I will definitely make this again! Thanks Watermelon!!


Hi everyone! I'm addicted to recipezaar - there are so many things that I love about this site; the wonderful people, recipes, lots of great pictures and there's always someone who'll answer my cooking/baking/general question. I grew up in Malaysia, but now live in sunny Singapore. Both are beautiful tropical (read: HOT!) countries in Southeast Asia. There are so many good food here, especially ethnic stuff like spicy Malaysian curries (which will clear the worst blocked nose), flaky & crispy Indian roti paratha/canai, homey Chinese stir-fries, rich & decadent Asian desserts like kuih lapis (Malay many-layers cake), pineapple tarts, crumbly peanut cookies etc. <img src="" alt="Image hosted by">
