Thai Satay Style Buffalo Wings

"When I was small, mom would make chicken satay with peanut sauce for company. It was only for special occasions, but it was one of my favorite dishes. I just started making it for my family and realized why it was only for company, IT'S HARD TO PREPARE THE CHICKEN. Slicing it into thin ribbons is tough work, especially in a small kitchen. But if I were to use chicken wings..."

  • Cut or prepare the chicken; place aside.
  • Mix ingredients for the satay sauce. Place in a gallon size ziplock bag.
  • Add chicken into bag, and place into the fridge overnight.
  • If making satay, place the thinly sliced chicken on skewers (like if you were sewing the chicken on the skewer).
  • Use a long pan (like a 9x13 cake pan) in place of the ziplock bag, cover, and keep in fridge overnight.
  • Make the peanut sauce by mixing the stock, sugar, salt and lemon juice and setting aside.
  • Heat a pan with the oil.
  • Add garlic and cook till golden.
  • Add the curry powder and mix in well, cook for a couple of seconds.
  • Add the coconut milk, keep stirring and allow to cook for a second or two.
  • Stir in the stock mixture and cook for a minute or two.
  • Add peanut butter and bread crumbs, mix well and transfer to a dipping bowl.
  • Fire up the grill and cook chicken over hot coals.
  • After the chicken is cooked, eat chicken by dipping the skewed meat (or buffalo wings) into the peanut sauce.
  • Enjoy with sticky rice, and a cold brew.

    We love these! They are good with or without the dipping sauce.

    We found these fantastic tasting satay wings and very easy to make. I baked my wings in a 180C (350F) oven on a roasting rack until done, and just keep basting them with the left over marinade mix as they cooked. I made the recipe as stated and actually have a second lot of wings mixed with the marinade in the freezer ready for next time. I'd never heard of mixing breadcrumbs in with the dipping sauce before but they worked really well and made the sauce quite thick. Hubby is still raving about these this morning. Thanks for sharing an excellent recipe.


I'm half Thai. I typed in a bunch of stuff here, but then I went to save changes, and it said I wasn't logged in. Oh well. :)
