This is my own take on the classic Thai chicken satay! It's yum!

I made this for a large group of people and everyone loved it! It was so yummy! I made a few changes to adapt to what i had or could find at the local grocer i could only find tamarind chutney so i used that i couldnt find muscavado sugar so i used brown sugar i used natural peanut butter and added a bit of yellow curry powder to the sauce. It was too cold outside and my bbq was tempermental so i baked in a 375 oven until they looked done. SO MOIST. huge success and i would definitely make again! Read More

this was exceptionally good and very well received. the marinade never thickened and i worried about that a bit but it still tasted great. the satay sauce tasted like something i'd get in a restaurant. i'd definitely make this again. Read More

I was unable to find tamarind paste lemon grass or muscovado sugar - so I substituted Worcestershire sauce lemon zest and brown sugar. Delicious despite the substitutions. Peanut sauce was great! Read More

Excellent recipe - I even found it very kid-friendly! As usual I tweaked it some but the tastes and textures are all outstanding as written. I sauteed the chicken instead of grilling and served it over linguini noodles with toasted sesame oil then ladled the sauce over all. A side order of stir-fried snow peas carrots red bell pepper water chestnuts and steamed brocolli balanced the creamy with crisp. Will DEFINITELY make again! Read More

I have never cooked Thai before and this turned out simply gorgeous. I found my marinade thickend up well by leaving it in the fridge overnight before using it....then no problems. Only critiscm I have is that I found the sauce too sweet for me but will omit sugar next time. Otherwise....great! Read More

This was fantastic! The blend of flavors perfect! I server this on a bed of rice. My husband said it was the best sauce he ever tasted. I followed the recipe as written and would do so again. Thanks this is going to be a regular meal here. The only thing I might try is adding some grape tomatoes to the skewer next time. Read More

Wonderfully tangy chicken. Great dish as a centerpiece or side to any meal. Wonderfully rich also. The peanut sauce could have been more flavorful perhaps take that into account if making this. Perhaps use twice the spice or an extra half of the spices/peanut butter. I baked mine in the oven at 475 degrees cooked up quick lightly charred and juicy... just like they would on a grill. Will be making this again and again thanks! Read More

This is absolutely worth every bit of effort! The only ingredient I couldn't find was muscovado sugar so I substituted brown sugar. It was delicious and all five of my picky kids gobbled it up! YUMMY!!! Read More

Used brown sugar for Muscovado. Made the marinade exactly. Doubled the sauce ingredients and quadrupled the peanut butter and omitted the peanuts. Used 20 oz of lite cocount milk. Marinated chicken for 12 hours just because made it the night before. I have NEVER had such tender chicken...the chicken breast were organic. It was like a Filet Mignon that melts in your mouth. YUM! Hope you try this recipe! Read More
