Calories 117kcal


  • 2.5 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

Marinade Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp chopped garlic
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice

Peanut Sauce Ingredients

  • cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp chili paste to taste
  • 1 tsp Apple cider vinegar
  • cup water or more depending on desired thickness


  • If you are using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water overnight before you cook the recipe.
  • Trim the fat from the chicken thighs. Cut into about 1 inch cubes.
  • Combine the marinade ingredients in a small 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.
  • Once the chicken has marinated, 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.
  • Heat the grill on a low heat, and slowly grill the satay about ten minutes on each side. Check the chicken frequently to ensure it isn't burning. Chicken is completely cooked when it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • While the chicken is cooking, whisk together the peanut sauce ingredients, adding more water according to desired thickness.
  • Enjoy!
