Chicken Satay with a Peanut Sauce

Updated: Feb 16, 2021

I love chicken satay. The flavours in the sauce are so intense. I'll probably make this recipe 4-5 times a month. For some reason my kids like to eat things on sticks. So Chicken Satay is a big win in our home. And don't get me started on dipping stuff into sauces. They go nuts for that kind of food: fondue, ganache, salted caramel and cheese sauce. You name it, if you can dip something into it, they will love it.

This recipe has the perfect flavour on the chicken and a dynamite sauce, which just brings this dish together. I add a splash of lime to the top, to give it a citrus kick.
