BEST Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

I LOVE chicken satay!! My husband and I used to go to this little thai restaurant every date night we got, and would always order it as a starter–but I just found out that place has now closed down….(hopefully not for bad reasons, like the chicken was actually rat meat)! So I decided to find my own killer (and totally trust-worthy) recipe! I don’t know where this recipe originally came from, but all I do know, is that it’s the BEST! It’s also probably the simplest recipe I have blogged so far, but just as good as all the others, so you have got to try it!!

[for the satay] 2 Tbsp creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon/lime juice
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp curry powder
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tsp hot sauce
6 chicken breasts, cubed

[for the sauce] 1 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 limes, juiced
1/2-1 cup water
1-2 tsp Chilli paste or hot sauce (optional)

In a dish, combine all the ingredients for the marinade (except the chicken) and stir 

Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds, or until the peanut butter and sugar have melted and the marinade is a smooth consistency Cube the chicken, and place in the marinade for 2 hours-overnight, in the fridge 

When you’re ready to grill the chicken, make the sauce. Combine the peanut butter, sugar and soy sauce in a saucepan and stir until melted and smooth Add the freshly squeezed lime juice, then add water according to desired consistency. If you like a thick sauce add 1/2 cup, if you like a thinner sauce, add 1 cup 

Preheat the grill to 375degF (medium-high) Thread the chicken on skewers

Grill for 5 minutes on one side, then turn over and grill for 5 minutes on the next side
Serve on skewers with the side of peanut butter sauce Or take the chicken off the skewers, place on top of rice, and pour the sauce over Mmmmm…

Maybe I won’t miss that Thai place as much as I thought I would!! Hope you love this recipe as much as I do!
