Instructions

Are you on duty for an upcoming BBQ or are you just looking for a new and refreshing chicken satay recipe? This is a really nice recipe to step up your skewed-meat-game. It’s easy and it packs a ton of flavor! Making use of a curry paste for a marinade is a real shortcut to a flavor-packed BBQ-dish!

There is something nostalgic about meat on a stick. Straight from the barbecue or as a side for your fried rice or noodle dishes. If you have been to Asia, you will have definitely eaten at these small BBQ-stables alongside the roads. Chicken satay is a crucial part of asian cooking and very popular in countries like Indonesia, Thailand and Japan. In this recipe we also include the directions for a super-easy peanut coconut satay sauce.

Thai chicken satay ingredients


Step 1
The first step will be cutting up your chicken thighs in chunks of your preference. I personally like to make the cubes approximately 1cm x 1cm, because I don't like to grill the satay for to long. Most important is that you are consistent in the cutting size, so that your satay will cook evenly. Then put all the other satay ingredients in a bowl and give a whisk, add your chicken and put in the fridge for at least one hour but ideally overnight. If you are using wooden skewers, make sure you soak them in water to prevent burning on the BBQ.

Step 2
Now it's time to make the peanut-satay sauce. Start by heating up the vegetable oil in a small saucepan on a medium heat. Fry your curry paste for about 3 minutes while stirring occasionally. Then add all the other sauce ingredients and make sure you put it on your smallest burner on a real low heat. slowly simmer the sauce for about 5 minutes and your satay sauce will be finished. If you cook your satay sauce too long or on a high heat you will see that al the oil from the peanuts and the coconut milk separate and start floating on top, that is not what we are aiming for!

Step 3
Skew your chicken satay on the soaked skewers and now it's time to grill the satay. Ideally we do this on a BBQ but sometimes you want to make this dish in winter or you don't want to start a fire. In this case you can also use a griddle pan. Grill your satays on a medium-high heat and make sure you keep turning them often. After about 5 minutes of grilling (depending on your chunk size) your chicken satay will be ready to eat. Serve with the peanut sauce and enjoy!


Chefs tip
"You could use any curry paste you like. Do you have a favourite shop-bought paste or a homemade Panang curry paste in the freezer? Feel free to use that one. Making use of a curry paste for a marinade is a real shortcut to a flavor-packed BBQ-dish!"
