“I´m Indonesian but I live in Spain. I´d like to share with you my recipe of satay ayam. It has helped me a lot to overcome my homesickness. I hope this dish will be one of your favorite Asian dishes. You will not be able to resist the sweet and salty taste of the peanut sauce!”

Directions

  1. Combine chicken thighs, 3/4 teaspoon salt, white pepper, and sunflower seed oil in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Soak wooden skewers in water to prevent burning during cooking.
  3. Bring water, peanut butter, kecap manis, brown sugar, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a small saucepan; stir to combine. Remove from heat and add lime juice.
  4. Thread marinated chicken onto skewers. Set about 2 tablespoons peanut sauce aside in a small bowl and brush the sauce in the bowl over chicken.
  5. Heat a grill pan or large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange chicken skewers in batches on grill pan and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Serve skewers with remaining peanut sauce from the saucepan.

This is one of the better tasting peanut sauce here! Love it! Adjust the salt and sugar to taste. I doubled the sauce and used just over 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Will be making this again for sure!
