Satay Chicken Skewers

Satay Chicken Skewers

Satay-a south Asian (mainly Indonesian) dish mainly of skewered meat,beef, chicken, pork or fish dish served with a peanut sauce.I
t is grilled or barbecued over charcoal or open fire or in the oven and served lots of condiments and sauces.
I made these with soy sauce, peanut butter and other spices.It goes well with noodles or Indonesian  fried rice-Nasi Goreng.(see recipe in the Rice section of this blog)
You will need bamboo skewers (easily available in supermarkets).
Soak the skewers in hot water for at least 30 minutes before threading the meat on them
I have made these from chicken thighs as breast pieces dry out
.You will need at least 2 per person


2 to 3 chicken thighs trimmed and cut into pieces
1 dessertspoon Soy sauce
2 heaped dessertspoon (dsp) of peanut butter
2 dsp of peanut or vegetable oil.
1 tsp. of crushed garlic
1 tsp of chilly paste.
2 tsp. honey.
1 pinch of salt (avoid salt if the peanut butter is salty)
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Mix all the ingredients except the coriander in a bowl and marinate the chicken pieces for minimum 1 hour.
Thread the pieces on the bamboo skewers.
(You can add vegetables such as capsicums or onions to the skewers)

Preheat the oven to 200 C
Put the chicken skewers on a baking tray and grill them for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked.

Serve them hot with rice or noodles
