Grilled Chicken Skewers with Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce

There is nothing I love more than food from the grill. There is just something about that smoked flavour of the meat and anything that accompanies it. Chicken, of course, is one of my favourites, especially when it is done on the grill.

Meat done on a BBQ Skewer is never the same without a yummy dipping sauce. In light of this, I put together an all time favourite Asian recipe – skewered chicken with peanut butter dipping sauce. You might be saying “WHAT.” A dipping sauce with peanut butter. The outcome, however, is to die for.

Grilled Chicken Skewers with Peanut Butter Dipping Sauce

Grilled chicken skewers with peanut butter dipping sauce (satay sauce) are simple to make and incredibly delicious. I find them great in the summer done on the barbecue. Some people thing the idea of a peanut butter dipping sauce is weird, but the taste will prove differently. 


To Make the Marinate

To Make the Dipping Sauce


Off On

  1. Add the chicken to a mixing bowl followed by the curry powder, sugar, salt, pepper, curry paste, and coconut milk. Using your hands, message the mixture into the chicken.

  2. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and allow it to marinate in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Overnight is better.

  3. Add the coconut milk, curry paste, sugar, vinegar, water,  peanut butter, pepper, and salt to a sauce pan. Bring the mixture to a boil. Don't stir it until it boils due to the vinegar. Stir until well combined and simmer until the sauce thickens. Set it aside in a bowl. 

  4. Place the chicken on a skewer and set them aside. Heat your grill and place the skewers on. Grill until cooked though and no longer pink inside. 

    You can use wooden or metal skewers. I always soak my wooden skewers, depending on the grill you use, to prevent them from burning.
  5. Garnish with the cilantro. Serve with the dipping sauce and enjoy your grilled chicken skewers with peanut butter dipping sauce.

I use chicken thighs in the recipe, but you can use boneless, skinless beasts too. Adjust the seasoning according to your liking. The same applies to the sauce.
