  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade and thread chicken onto skewers.

  • Cook chicken on the preheated grill until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

I also recommend adding 1/2 cup chopped green onion before cooking.

You can substitute lime juice for the lemon juice.

You can pound the chicken breast halves flat instead of cutting them into chunks. Weave the flat breasts onto skewers.

To broil the chicken, set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken on the prepared baking sheet and cook, turning once, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, about 10 minutes.

To bake the chicken, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken on the prepared baking sheet and cook until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, about 15 minutes.

Wow this was so very delicious! I made this using the oven method described in the notes since I didn't feel like starting up my grill. Served it with Thai roti bread (very easy to make). We used the leftovers to make the Satay Chicken Pizza recipe from this site. (I used roti bread instead of pita for the crust which probably tasted even better IMO. Can't wait to make this recipe again. Thanks CaptainCook! Read More

Loved this! Followed directions exactly cut chicken into strips and let marinade for a couple hours it was so good! My only worry is that my husband will stop taking me to our favorite Thai place once he found out I could make this at home! Paired it with a curry eggplant dish cucumber salad and rice noodles...Thai heaven! Make this easy and delish! Read More

This is so very excellent! My kids liked it and my husband raved about it! Since I didn't have any lemons I substituted the juice of 2 limes and added 1/4 c. seasoned rice wine vinegar to make up the rest. I marinaded the chicken breasts for only 1 hour and it still came out very flavorful. My husband prefers to have his chicken well-done so he grilled for 6 min. per side which made the chicken a bit dry....I'd stick with the 5 min. per side. Quick easy and super flavorful recipe!

My entire family LOVES this recipe--picky kids included. It is so simple to put together and incredibly flavorful. After we remove the chicken we bring the marinade to a rolling boil for several minutes to kill any bacteria and reduce it then use it for a dipping sauce. Or if reusing marinade grosses you out simply double it and set half aside for the dipping sauce and the other half for marinade. I serve it with coconut rice (which also goes well with the sauce). Delicious! Read More
