Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large nonreactive bowl, stir together the onion, garlic, lemon grass, soy sauce, peanut oil, turmeric, brown sugar, cumin, ginger, salt, and pepper. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of marinade in a small bowl, and refrigerate until cooking time. Mix the chicken breasts into the remaining marinade, stir to coat well, and marinate in refrigerator overnight.

  • About 30 minutes before serving, soak the skewers in water. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove the chicken breasts from the bowl, and discard the used marinade. Cut each chicken breast on the diagonal into 6 long strips, and thread a chicken strip onto one of the soaked skewers. Grill the skewers, turning frequently and basting with the reserved marinade, until the chicken is cooked through with brown, crispy edges, 5 to 8 minutes per skewer.

Cook's Notes

For beef, slice beef into thin slices and tenderize with a fork. Trim away any fat and gristle. Marinate, slice, and thread onto skewers as for chicken.

Make extra marinade, reduce in a saucepan over high heat for about 5 minutes, and strain to make a dipping sauce for the satay.
