Chicken Satay

Chicken Satay is a classic Thai dish that is very easy to put together. If you remember I attempted at making it a few months back and it came out so-so. This time around it came out 100 times better. The marinade is what did it. I’ll be making this easy appetizer/entree for many years to come. I was unable to find fresh lemongrass, so I opted for the paste. I don’t think it made any difference whether you have the fresh stuff or the paste… just less labor intensive. I let the chicken sit in the marinade for a few hours, and quickly skewered them once guest arrived. The key is not over cooking these little gems. You want them to be as moist and tender as possible. I highly suggest you serve these with the peanut sauce & sweet chili sauce.  You can find the original recipe on the Thai Kitchen website

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Serves: 8 

  • 1/2 cup Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp Thai Kitchen Premium Fish Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste
  • 2 tsp minced fresh lemongrass (or paste)
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4 inch strips
  • Bamboo skewers
  • 1/2 cup Thai Kitchen Peanut Satay Sauce
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Chili Sauce

1. Mix coconut milk, fish sauce, curry paste and lemongrass in small bowl until well blended. Place chicken in large resealable plastic bag or glass dish. Add marinade; toss to coat well.

2. Refrigerate 1 hour or longer for extra flavor. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread chicken strips onto skewers.
3. Broil or grill over medium-high heat 3 minutes per side or until chicken is cooked through. Serve with Peanut Satay Sauce & Sweet Chili Sauce for dipping.
