Take Back the Kitchen: Chicken Satay with Peanut Coconut Sauce
Hi everyone! How many of us eat Thai food in restaurants but would never dream of being able to make it ourselves?
Well, we had the pleasure of dining at our friends' house last weekend and how happy were we as a Chicken satay-loving- family to see that our friend, Colin, was ready to grill ALREADY marinating chicken???
I don't know about you, but it touches my heart a bit when I dine at a friends house and it is clear that they took our meal so seriously that they began planning for it the day before. He marinate the chicken AND made the no-knead bread the day before and this really struck me as thoughtful :-).
Anyhoo, here is the recipe that he got from food.com and it rivals my friend Julius' that is also on my blog. Not better, just different!
Colin's Chicken Satay with Peanut Coconut Sauce:
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 cup coconut milk
2 TBS fresh lime juice
2 TBS soy sauce
1 1/2 TBS dark brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (Colin used sriracha)
2 lbs chicken cutlets
30 wooden skewers, soaked for 30 minutes
1. Mix first 8 ingredients, remove 3/4 and refrigerate
2. Cut chicken into strips and marinate in remaining sauce for 1 hour
3. Heat broiler, thread strips onto skewers and broil about 6 minutes (Colin grilled the chicken outside on his cool and HUGE Weber grill)
4. Bring refrigerated sauce to room temp. and use as a dip for the chicken
