Ingredient Checklist
Peanut Sauce:


Instructions Checklist
  • Put wooden skewers in a shallow dish and cover with water. Let soak for 20 minutes.

  • Place chicken strips into a bowl. Combine soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, pepper, and cumin in a small bowl; mix to combine. Pour over chicken strips and mix so chicken is well coated on all sides. Marinate for 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, make the peanut sauce. Add 1 tablespoon oil to a hot skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Add peanut butter, sugar, soy sauce, and water. Mix well. Cook until sauce has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and remove from heat.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Thread each chicken strip onto a skewer.

  • Place skewers on the preheated grill and cook for a total of 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through cooking. Serve the satay skewers immediately with the peanut sauce for dipping.

I had to cook this on my large George Foreman and not on the grill, but it was DELICIOUS! I had peanut sauce for the only time at a restaurant about a decade ago and haven't really stopped thinking about it since. I'm so glad that I found this recipe because it was just as good as I've been thinking about all this time! Read More
