Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Editor’s Note: This recipe was submitted  by Jinky Lazaro of Cooking Machine
This Chicken Satay recipe is amazing !!! The flavors come together like they were made for each other. The chicken by itself was very flavorful and could stand on it’s own; the Peanut Sauce was good too.

On another note, you can pair the Peanut Sauce with Asian Summer Rolls too. This recipe was taken from  from FoodNetwork/Ellie Krieger and Thai Food Tonight

This is a definite keeper!
