Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
Every once in a while you get a craving for something.  Yes, I know you do.  I do, too.  This week I craved chicken satay.

 It all started a couple of weeks ago at a dinner party  where chicken satay was served as an appetizer.  It was yummy.  Then I saw Lucinda Scala Quinn make her version of chicken satay on her show, Mad Hungry

Well, that was all it took.  The combination of the two made me lock onto chicken satay as a must have.  I decided it would be an entree item, served with my coconut rice and steamed broccoli.

The recipe I used was inspired by Tyler Florence.  Chicken tenders were on sale this week at our local grocery store and all the other ingredients were happily waiting in the refrigerator or pantry.  It was time to make chicken satay!

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon curry powder
  • wooden skewers. soaked in water for at least 30 minutes

Rinse and pat dry the chicken tenders.  In a small bowl mix together the yogurt, ginger, and curry powder. 

Pour the marinade over the chicken tenders and toss gently to coat the chicken.  Cover and place in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 2 hours.

Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar and lime juice together in your food processor or blender.  Puree to mix well.  With the motor running add the hot water to thin out the mixture.  Use as much of the water as you need to get a thick, but smooth consistency that is perfect for dipping.

Thread the chicken tenders onto the skewers. 

Chicken Satay Ready for the Grill
Using a grill pan or your outside grill, cook the chicken for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until cooked through.  Serve the chicken drizzled with the peanut sauce, chopped peanuts and chopped green pepper as garnish.  Serve extra peanut sauce on the side.
