Chicken Satay with a Peanut Dipping Sauce

Have a told you guys about the yummy wonder that is Thai food. While at Quinnipiac, my mentor took me to a Thai restaurant because I had never been to one. Since those first bites, I have been hooked. Thai is great and a lot of it is gluten free! Pad Thai rice noodles…MMMM! One of the first Thai things I tried was chicken satay. Marinated chicken with a peanut dipping sauce. Nice, simple and delicious. Now you can great your own chicken satay for a different dinner option or dazzle guests at any party.

Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce 


For the Chicken:

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3/4 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1 inch strips
For the Peanut Sauce
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon gluten free soy sauce
  • Salt to taste
  • 10 (6 inch) wooden skewers, or as needed, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  1. Stir together 1/2 cup coconut milk, garlic, 1 teaspoon curry powder, brown sugar, salt, and pepper until the sugar has dissolved. Toss marinade with the chicken, cover, and marinate for at least 2 hours.
  2. Bring 1 cup coconut milk, 1 tablespoon curry powder, peanut butter, chicken stock, and 1/4 cup brown sugar to a simmer in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice and soy sauce; season to taste with salt.
  3. Preheat a grill for medium-high heat.
  4. Thread marinated chicken onto skewers, then grill 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Serve with warm peanut sauce.
