  • 1 chicken breast boneless
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin

  • 1 cup peanut butter

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp ginger minced
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice

Instructions
 

Satay Chicken Skewers

  • Cut chicken breast into one inch thick slices. Combine all other ingredients together in a bowl. Add chicken to marinade bowl and let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Stick skewers into each slice of chicken and grill until chicken is charred, about 4 minutes on each side. Set aside and serve with Peanut Sauce.

Indonesian Peanut Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix until smooth. Serve with Satay Chicken Skewers.

Notes

  • Marinate the chicken for up to 3 hours for the best and tastiest results! I know I know, sometimes we don’t have 3 hours, so be sure to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  • If you don’t have a jalapeno on hand for the peanut sauce, grab a serrano or habanero pepper. And if you don’t have any of those, some red chili flakes or cayenne pepper will do the trick too!
