Thai Chicken Satay
If you’ve never made Thai Chicken Satay at home before you are missing out. This recipe uses boneless chicken breast (or chicken thighs) marinated in coconut milk, fish sauce and curry paste then grilled. The chicken has so much flavor and is extremely tender. Best of all it’s served with a creamy peanut dipping sauce. The peanut sauce is sweet with a hint of spice. You can customize the spiciness by adding more of less sriracha.

easy-thai-peanut-satayThis recipe is very easy to make and takes only 15 minutes or prep time. Throw all of the ingredients into a large ziplock bag and marinade for at least 4 hours or overnight. When you’re ready to eat grill the chicken and whip up the peanut dipping sauce.

To keep the wooden skewers from burning I soak them in water for 30 minutes to an hour before using them.

I like to serve this Thai Chicken Satay over cilantro lime rice. This would also make a great appetizer!

    Great recipe! I use it with one can Coconut milk and it makes enough for two separate servings. I divide the mixture and store half in fridge for the next batch. I marinade overnight. Love it!
