Peanut Sauce with Grilled Chicken Satay

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce is a spectacular meal from Brunei. Chicken pieces are marinated in a Thai-flavored marinade and then grilled on a barbecue grill. They are then dipped in scrumptious peanut sauce to be enjoyed!

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs  Marinade Ingredients Coconut milk Soy sauce Curry powder Turmeric Garlic Ground ginger Brown sugar Fish sauce Lime juice

Peanut Sauce Ingredients Peanut butter Fish sauce Ginger Soy sauce Chili paste Apple cider vinegar Water

If you are using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water before using them. At least 30 min.



Trim the fat from the chicken thighs. Cut into about 1 inch cubes.

Combine the marinade ingredients in a bowl. In a gallon ziplock bag, add the cubed chicken pieces and pour the marinade. Put the ziplock bag in the fridge and let rest for about 2 hours or overnight.


Place three cubed pieces side by side on the wooden skewer. Make sure to skewer the chicken the long way.


Use a pastry brush to brush olive oil on your barbecue grill to keep the chicken from sticking.


While the chicken is cooking, whisk together the peanut sauce ingredients, adding more water according to desired thickness.



Heat the grill on a low heat, and slowly grill the satay about ten minutes on each side.
