Chicken Satays with Peanut Sauce

I have been over the moon using the grill my dad gave me when I moved into this house. I didn’t get much use out of it for the first nine years, but I am making up for that now. It took me a bit of time to get confident enough to stray from pork steaks, hamburgers, and the occasional zucchini, but stray I did in making these grilled chicken satays with peanut sauce, a super easy, super delicious recipe from the Damn Delicious site. The skewers make these easy to maneuver and the kids will find them lots of fun.  If you are a fan of chicken with peanut sauce, these are a must make.

Chicken Satays with Peanut Sauce

¼ c.
coconut milk
2 T. reduced sodium soy sauce
2½ t.
yellow curry powder
1½ t. turmeric
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. freshly grated ginger
1 T. brown sugar
1 T.
fish sauce
2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch chunks
1 T. canola oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the peanut sauce:
3 T. creamy peanut butter
1 T. reduced sodium soy sauce
1 T. freshly squeezed lime juice
2 t. brown sugar
2 t.
chili garlic sauce, or more, to taste
1 t. freshly grated ginger

To make peanut sauce, whisk together peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, chili garlic sauce, and ginger in a small bowl. Whisk in 2 to 3 tablespoons water until desired consistency is reached; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine coconut milk, soy sauce, curry powder, turmeric, garlic, ginger, brown sugar, and fish sauce.

 In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine chicken and marinade; marinate for at least two hours to overnight, turning the bag occasionally.

Drain the chicken from the marinade, discarding the marinade.

Bring grill to medium high heat. Thread chicken onto
skewers*. Brush with canola oil; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

And skewers to grill, and cook, turning occasionally, until the chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165° F, about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately with peanut sauce.

*Soak skewers in water for 30 minutes to an hour prior to using to prevent them from catching on fire.

I do love peanut sauce and enjoy a tofu satay every now and then. Glad you are enjoying new ways to make use of your grill. Looks delicious.
