The first night I made chicken satay for dinner, my husband asked if we could keep it on a weekly rotation. And that was on the third night of leftovers. I agree; it is indescribable—lots and lots of flavors.

Chicken Satay Skewers go hand-in-hand with peanut sauce for dipping. I use the same peanut sauce recipe, my favorite, that I also serve with spring rolls. It is easily found in grocery stores if you don’t want to make peanut sauce. My favorite store brands are Bangkok Peanut Sauce and San-J Thai Peanut Mildly Spicy Marinade & Dipping Sauce; both are gluten-free.

What kind of chicken is best?
I prefer chicken breast for skewers, but thigh meat is fine too. Chicken tenders are easy because they are ready to thread on the skewers.

The chicken will marinate just 30 minutes before grilling. Grill time is 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.

While the chicken is grilling, you can cook up some ramen noodles (gluten-free if needed) and stir-fry a pan of fresh veggies. That’s a quick and simple yet delicious dinner in less than an hour, including the marinating time!!
