Chicken Satay Recipe

This Chicken Satay Recipe is quick and simple. Like most chicken dishes preparation, it involves marinating the meat in seasonings and spices. The chicken is then threaded in bamboo skewers and grilled until cooked.

Satay is popular in South East Asia. In the Philippines, provinces in the Southern regions have different versions of this dish.

Making Chicken Satay using this recipe is like preparing barbecue. The meat needs to be marinated at least overnight so that it will absorb the flavor. It is then skewered in bamboo sticks (which we also call barbecue sticks) before grilling. It is recommended that you baste the chicken with left over marinade while grilling so that the meat will not be dry.

This Chicken Satay Recipe is really good, but the sauce makes it even better. The Peanut Sauce Recipe that we have below will guide you to make a nice tasting sauce for your chicken. This will definitely make your meal more enjoyable.

I like this recipe for its unique yet delicious flavor. I think that adding the peanut sauce makes this dish stand out. I enjoy having this with steamed rice.
