Chicken Satay Recipe

Chicken Satay

Total Time: 2 hours (this includes time for prep)

Serves: 2

Believed to have its origins in Indonesia, Satay is a sweet and savoury, grilled meat dish served with peanut sauce. Famous throughout Southeast-Asia, the most popular satay is chicken or pork satay, but beef and tofu are used as well.

Chef's note:

When making satay, it is best to retain some of the fat with the chicken thigh. When grilled, the fat keeps the meat moist and adds a crunchy texture and smoky flavour to the meat. Serve the chicken skewers with a side of Boombay’s Peanut + Lime Dip & Spread.
