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)
- Slice the chicken into thin strips (One breast is 4 strips). Set aside in a large bowl.
- 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). 🙂
- Pour the marinade into the chicken and marinate for at least 3 to 4 hours. Overnight is suggested. 🙂
- Once ready to grill, thread the meat into the skewer. While doing this, asked your husband or your partner to fire up the grill. 😀
- Grill the satays until cooked through usually about 4 minutes per side.
Best served with steamed rice. ENJOY!
