Easy Grilled Chicken Satay

You have most likely ordered chicken satay for takeout or in a Thai restaurant. It's typically found as a starter with around 4 pieces of chicken, skewered and served with a dipping sauce anywhere from $5 to $9 dollars. Using 3 split chicken breasts, for around the same price you can create your own at home — the only difference being you will easily create 30 tasty appetizers to share with family and friends —BOOM!

  • 3 chicken breast halves, cut into 1/4" thick strips
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 1t coriander seed
  • 1t turmeric
  • 1/3 cup of tamarind or soy sauce
  • 1T chili garlic paste
  • 3 green onions
  • Bamboo skewers, soaked in water

Start by placing the shallot, coriander seed and turmeric into a mortar, mashing everything together with the pestle to form a thick paste.

Add paste to the tamarind and chili garlic sauce, stirring to combine. Add chicken and stir to coat. Place in refrigerator to marinade for 30 minutes.

Remove the chicken and skewer each piece onto the bamboo sticks.

Fire up the charcoal grill, cooking the individual skewers until done and taking on grill marks.

Arrange on a serving plate and garnish with the green onions.

I served these without a dipping sauce as they were quite flavorful all by themselves. SheSimmers offers up an easy homemade peanut dipping sauce if you so please.

E.A.T. local E.A.T. well
