Chicken Sate (Nasi Goreng)

READY IN: 18mins




  • Dice the chicken into bite sized pieces.
  • Mix together the dry spices, garlic, ginger, sugar, and sambal . Add the chicken and mix to coat. Leave to marinade in the fridge for as long as you have time for, (min 1 hr but best overnight).
  • For the Sate Sauce:
  • Heat all the ingredients over low/medium heat. Add more or less of one or the other until you are happy with the balance of flavors and the consistency.
  • Skewer the chicken onto metal or wooden skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water beforehand, this prevents the wood from burning during the cooking process. This should yield 6-8 skewers, 3 each as a main, or 2 each as a starter.
  • Place skewers on the barbie and grill, so that they are not touching. Cover grill. Grill chicken until cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes, turning once. or fry in a non-stick pan or grill pan in coconut oil. Turn often until the juices run clear.
  • Serve smothered in sate sauce with lime wedges, Dutch style, with chips! (Fries).
