Recipe

Grilled Chicken Satays With Peanut Sauce

  • Yield: 8 to 12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and cut into thin strips about 3 by 1/4-inch each
  • 35 to 45 medium (7-inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 15 to 30 minutes
  • Peanut Sauce
  • Chopped peanuts, garnish
  • Cilantro sprigs, garnish

Directions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the soy, oil, fish sauce, ginger, garlic, coriander, and pepper flakes. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high. (Or preheat the broiler.)
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and thread 1 strip of chicken down the middle of each skewer.
  • In batches, cook the satays on the grill (or on a broiler pan under the broiler) until the chicken is cooked through and the meat is browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side, watching carefully and turning so the meat does not burn.
  • To serve, arrange the skewers on a platter and lightly drizzle with the peanut sauce and chopped peanuts. Serve additional sauce in a bowl on the side for dipping. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve hot or at room temperature.
