Scrumptious Chicken Satay Recipe

Scrumptious Chicken Satay Recipe

This satay's appeal is easy to understand: tender, grilled meat dunked in the most delicious peanut sauce and served with a sweet, salty cucumber relish. What's not to love?


  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander seed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 1 hour


  1. For easier slicing, place the meat in the freezer for 20 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine the coconut milk, brown sugar, fish sauce, coriander, cumin, and turmeric in a large bowl and stir well to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Slice the meat into thin strips about 3/4-inch thick and 3 inches long. Add the meat to the coconut milk marinade and refrigerate covered for at least 2 hours.
  3. Preheat the broiler or a grill. Thread 1 or 2 pieces of meat onto each skewer. Grill or broil the meat for 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until it's cooked through. Makes about 10 skewers.
