    This simple marinated chicken tastes just delicious, especially when paired with this spicy peanut sauce for dipping or basting. The end result is a beautiful flavour!

    Serves: 4 

    • 500g skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1cm strips
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
    • 2 teaspoons peanut oil
    • 4 small onions, minced
    • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
    • 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root
    • 2 small red chillies, seeded and minced
    • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
    • 1 3/4 cups (440ml) coconut milk
    • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
    • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
    • 12 wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:26min  ›  Extra time:1hour marinating  ›  Ready in:1hour56min 

    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 frypan over medium heat. Stir in onions, garlic, ginger and chillies. Cook and stir until the onion 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 a barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil grate. Thread chicken onto skewers.
    4. Barbecue chicken skewers on preheated barbecue until no longer pink in the centre, 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!  -  12 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!)  -  11 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    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!  -  13 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
