Chicken satay served up with peanut sauce is out of this world. I always make it up on a Friday night and the entire family loves it. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
There are a couple tips to making this dish. First, if you want the peanut butter sauce a littler runnier, add a little more water. If you want it drier, add more peanut butter. You can do the chicken on a indoor or outdoor grill. It can even be done in a frying pan; although, it not as good. Personally, I love the flavor the outdoor grill gives. As always, you can adjust the seasoning according to your taste.

- Combine the marinating ingredients in a mixing bowl, place the chicken in, and massage the meat until it’s well combined. Place some cling wrap over the top of the bowl and put it in the fridge for an one hour or so.
- Combine the ingredients for the peanut sauce and mix them well.
- Put the chicken onto the skewers. I kind of weave them on. Place them into a fry pan or hot grill and fry them for about 4 minutes on each side.
