The Daring Kitchen (January 2010)...Chicken Satay

This month the challenge was to make satay. We could choose the meat we wished to use, or do vegetarian, but the one requirement was to use a marinade. I've always wanted to make satay, so I was pretty excited to give this one a try.

I decided to go with chicken satay. This is what I did:

First I combined in a medium bowl 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of curry powder, 2 cloves minced garlic...

... and1 teaspoon of chili paste and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter...

...with 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/2 cup of lemon juice.

I mixed this up until the peanut butter was smooth.

I sliced up some chicken breasts and put the chicken slices in a ziploc bag, and poured the marinade over it. I marinated the chicken all day while I was at work.

That night, I chopped up some zucchini, red and green pepper and sweet onion.

I soaked some wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes. Then I threaded the chicken onto the skewers, interspersed with the veggies, and then grilled them on my George Foreman grill.

I served my satay with Basmati rice. I made some peanut sauce, but neither of us really was that big on it. Plus the chicken was so flavorful on its own that it just didn't need any other sauce.

Very good! Thanks so much to Cuppy for the challenge! Both of us loved the satay, and it was so easy! I'll definitely be doing this one again.
