“This simply marinated chicken tastes just delicious, especially when paired with this spicy peanut sauce for dipping or basting. Fish sauce STINKS, do not let this stop you, the end result is a beautiful flavor!”

Original recipe yields 12 skewers

Directions

  1. Toss chicken, garlic, ginger, and 1 tablespoon fish sauce in a bowl until the chicken is coated in the marinade. Cover, and marinate for 1 hour.
  2. While the chicken is marinating, heat the peanut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in shallots, garlic, ginger, and chile peppers. Cook and stir until the shallot begins to turn golden brown, about 7 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and stir in peanut butter, coconut milk, soy sauce, brown sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce, and lime juice until blended. Simmer very gently for 10 minutes, then remove from heat and keep warm.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Thread chicken onto skewers.
  4. Grill chicken skewers on preheated grill until no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with warm peanut sauce.

The chicken was fantastic! I made this chicken but used the peanut sauce recipe from 'peanut sauce II' I don't have a grill, so I skipped the skewer and grill bit and just fried the chicken in a frying pan, then served the chicken and sauce over rice. I had a guest over for dinner and he kept commenting on how good it was! I'll definately be making this again!

I'd give 4.5 if I could. The chicken was very tender, and the peanut sauce was OK... I think I'd sweeten it up a bit and add less soy sauce and more chiles next time, but that is just a matter of personal taste. What I hate about EVERY peanut sauce recipe I try is the reliance on peanut butter!!! The sauces you get in really good thai restaurants don't have that same waxy/silky texture that the peanut butter produces, but I simply cannot find a peanut sauce recipe without it!! Maybe time to create my own (and then post it!)

YUM! This was great. It made a lot of sauce, but it was good. My sister in law is from Thailand and this was very similar to her chicken satay. Thanks!
