Chicken Satay With Peanut Sauce (Mark Bittman)

Another Mark Bittman recipe that I am posting for safekeeping. This one is also not specific in the amounts. I am guessing that the chicken is 1 pound. Prep and cooking times are also wild stabs. UPDATE 2-22-13: Today I tried making the sauce for the first time. I thought that the ingredients listed were fine, but the sauce seemed too bland. I doubled the lime juice and a couple of other seasonings, and added a little garlic powder, and I thought that made a significant improvement. It would be best for you to experiment and find the proportions of the ingredients that work best for you.

  • Meanwhile, whisk together peanut butter, lime juice, soy sauce, red chile flakes, brown sugar, and enough chicken broth or water to make a smooth sauce.
