Directions

  • In a bowl, mix soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, black pepper, and cumin. Place chicken into the mixture, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, but not overnight. This will make the meat too dark.

  • Preheat the grill for high heat.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Mix in water, peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar. Cook and stir until well blended. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.

  • Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill skewers about 5 minutes per side, until chicken juices run clear. Serve with the peanut sauce.

WOW talk about EASY and extremely tasty!!! Our family absolutely loved this satay recipe!! I didn't think 15 minutes of marinating time would be enough but it was very good!! We love spiced up food so next time I might marinate it even longer. We used our George Foreman grill and since it cooks both sides at the same time we just grilled it for 5 minutes and it came out great!!! Thanks Estherlita...this is wonderful! Read More

These were a positive hit at my dinner event. Even with my substitutions they were delicious. I used pasta sauce instead of the tomato sauce and olive oil for the peanut oil. I also shocked by how liquidy my peanut sauce was turning out doubled the peanut butter to 1 cup. I'm used to a thicker sauce and this turned out just how I wanted it. A restaurant-quality recipe - thank you. Read More

Oh my God! This is fabulous...It has alot of ingredients but is worth the effort I made this as written. If you are not going to make it as written and you don't like it then you shouldn't rate it. Read More

I loved this dish as did my family. I did spice up the peanut sauce with a bit of red pepper flakes as was suggested by other reviewers. Otherwise the recipe was perfect. Served with basmati rice and a side of broccoli. Delish! Read More

Delicious easy and visually appealing makes this a perfect appetizer for company. I made the following modifications: halved the marinade for one chicken breast; substituted ketchup for tomato sauce; added a pinch of red pepper flakes; flattened chicken before cutting into strips; marinaded chicken in a bag for four hours; soaked skewers for at least two hours; grilled on my Cuisinart griddler. I did not make the peanut sauce. I look forward to trying this again with a fattier cut of chicken like the thigh as well as with pork beef and prawns. This is a wonderful recipe. Thank you for sharing! Read More

Fantastic! As good as any restaurant. I left it to marinade about 1 hour. This would be just as good made with chicken thighs. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

Thank you Estherlita! My 6 year old daughter couldn't get enough - she ate more than my husband and myself. I accidentally opened up tomatoe soup and used that instead of the tomatoe sauce and it still turned out great. Thanks for this recipe - a definite do again. Read More
