This is BY FAR one of my family's favorite meals. We usually grill this in the summer, then sit outside in the evening and enjoy a delcious meal together. The skewers are healthy, and low in fat, yet highly flavorful. We hope you enjoy it too.
Sate Chicken Skewers with Spicy Peanut Sauce
**Inspired by a Rasa Malaysia Recipe
2 ½ pounds skinless and boneless chicken breast, sliced into chicken tender sized slices
30 wooden skewers, pre-soaked in water for 30 minutes
2 Cucumbers, sliced
3 tablespoons Fish sauce
4 whole cloves of Garlic
2 teaspoons sweet Soy sauce
1 teaspoon Soy sauce
2.5 teaspoons Coconut or Palm Sugar
1/4 teaspoon white Pepper
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1 teaspoon Coriander
4 tablespoons Red Curry Paste
1 cup Coconut milk
1/8 cup Olive (oil optional)
2 teaspoons Red Curry paste
2 tablespoons Fish sauce
3 tablespoons Tamarind puree
3 tablespoons creamy Peanut butter
1 tablespoon Palm or Coconut sugar
1 teaspoon paprika powder
2 whole cloves Garlic
2 cups Coconut milk
1 cup crushed Peanuts
Prepare the marinade by adding all your ingredients to a blender, blending on high until smooth and creamy.
Slice the chicken breasts, then add to a large zip lock bag, then mix in the Marinade and make sure all pieces are coated. Marinate the meat overnight, or at least 4 hours in a large zip lock bag in the refrigerator.
Prepare the peanut sauce by adding all the Peanut Sauce ingredients in a 2 quart sauce pan. Mix well and cook on medium heat. Stir the sauce while cooking. Turn off the heat when the sauce is slightly thickened. It takes about 10-15 minutes.
Take out the marinated chicken from the refrigerator. Insert the wooden skewers through the meat lengthwise. Grill the Sate for 4 minutes on each side or until desired tenderness. I grill them on the lowest heat, turning frequently so they don't burn.
Serve with Peanut Sauce and peeled and sliced cucumbers, and Thai sticky rice.
