Grilled Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce

Grilled Chicken Satay Skewers with Peanut Sauce

I have always LOVED chicken satay skewers, but never really thought about making them until my roommate Jamie told me how she always enjoyed them as a kid. I mean, what isn't to love?? I must admit, I am SLIGHTLY (wildly) obsessed with the peanut sauce included in the recipe, and think I would honestly eat tree bark if I could slather this sauce on it. It's unreal. And really easy to make, throw all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Ideal if you ask me. These chicken skewers are simple, tender and absolutely delicious. I served ours alongside a red cabbage, green apple and edamame slaw with ginger, mint and basil. A perfectly light and summery meal. I hope you love these as much as we do!

Ingredients:

For the chicken and marinade:

  • Chicken breast (one breast per person)
  • 1/4c soy sauce 
  • 1/4c olive oil
  • 2 knobs ginger
  • 1 knob garlic
  • Juice of 1 lime 
  • Pepper to taste

For the Peanut Sauce:

  • 3 tbsp peanut butter 
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice, lime juice or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha 
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 knob ginger
  • Water to thin the sauce to desired thickness

Prep:

For the chicken:

  • Slice the chicken breasts into 1 inch cubes 
  • Marinate chicken in soy mixture for at least one hour. 
  • Once the chicken has marinated, place the cubes on skewers
  • Cook chicken on grill for approximately 14 minutes (7 minutes on each side)
  • Baste the chicken with marinade while grilling for additional moisture and flavor! Highly recommend :)

For the sauce:

  • Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend on high until smooth.
