One of my best posts ever since I started blogging is my post on my recipe for "the best chicken satay ever" and it's probably due to the fact that it has been pinned a lot from Pinterest. 


Anyway, as I am consolidating blog posts, I decided to move it here because I want to believe that this is a true keeper. You don't believe me? Ask this little fella. 😉 Recipe below: 


Protein is something that is important in my diet — not only to build and retain muscles but also to repair micro-tears from runs, workouts and bike rides. It was my dear husband JZ who suggested Chicken satay and since he has been suffering from my crazy gluten-free diet, I happily obliged.

My grandma used to say that for the food to taste great, you have to use the best ingredients… so that’s why I did… 🙂  I bought organic chicken breast, organic peanut butter and use gluten free soy sauce for this dish hoping that that wisdom from grandma will serve us well. 🙂

I think it did so here it goes!


8 chicken breast (sliced semi thinly to produce about 4 pc/breast)


For the marinade:

2 cloves  fresh garlic (minced)

1/4 cup  gluten-free soy sauce (I used the lite version)

1 TBSP  yellow curry (I got this from the asian store — it already has lemongrass)

1 TBSP organic brown sugar or 1 TBSP agave nectar (you decide) 😀

2 TBSP sesame oil

1/3 cup organic creamy peanut butter (Maranatha is the best peanut butter I have ever tasted)

Pinch of red chili pepper flakes to taste (omit if your child doesn't like spicy food)


Bamboo Skewers

  1. Slice the chicken into thin strips (One breast is 4 strips). Set aside in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, mix well all the remaining ingredients together except for the skewers. (Dip your pinky finger and ask yourself what’s missing or lacking — adjust the taste to your liking). 🙂
  3. Pour the marinade into the chicken and marinate for at least 3 to 4 hours. Overnight is suggested. 🙂
  4. Once ready to grill, thread the meat into the skewer. While doing this, asked your husband or your partner to fire up the grill. 😀
  5. Grill the satays until cooked through usually about 4 minutes per side.

Best served with steamed rice. ENJOY!
