Peanut Chicken Satay

May 15th, 2011 § 2 comments

I love street food.

Especially when I visit new countries and towns.

It’s one of the best way to see the real local culture. I love sitting on a wobbly plastic chair, feeling the new fresh air, choosing a dish which I’ve never seen before. It’s a nice little adventure.

This recipe is Indonesian satay style. I remember the smily and hard working people at food stalls in Indonesia when I eat it.


— Peanut Chicken Satay (serves 4) —

5-6 chicken thighs, boned and skinned

Some coriander, chopped (for garnish)


— for marinade —

4 tablespoons peanuts butter

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon coriander, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon lemongrass, finely chopped

1/2 tablespoon curry powder

1/2 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon fish sauce (Nam pla)

4 tablespoons coconuts milk

1/2 tablespoon ketchup

1/2 tablespoon soya sauce

1 tablespoon vegetable oil


Cut the chicken into bite size.

Mix all the marinade ingredient in a bowl, add the chicken and coat well all over. Cover and let it marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Thread the chicken onto soaked bamboo skewers and grill for 4-5 minutes each side until cooked through.

Sprinkle with the chopped coriander.
