There is something off in this recipe ~ it just doesn't taste right as written! After reading through a multitude of reviews, there are to many consistent changes to the proportions. Will keep looking for a recipe more true to itself! Sorry....


This recipe is a little off. It certainly does not taste like any satay I've had before. I followed the instructions exactly (after I scaled it down by exactly 1/2) and there were a couple problems with it. 1) The soy sauce was overpowering. I recommend using a light or low sodium soy sauce or diluting regular soy sauce with equal part water. 2) The peanut butter taste is almost non-existent. I recommend that the peanut butter be doubled to get a good flavor.


With the addition of 2 more tablespoons of peanut butter or "PBoy" as my 3yr old niece says, this marinate was truly delicious I pounded boneless skinless chicken breasts to 3/8in, marinated them overnight in this mixture, then baked them at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Served with rice pilaf and asian coleslaw.The family thoroughly enjoyed this one. Its definitely a keeper,Kiera. Thank you.
