Thai Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce

A popular restaurant here in Boise and Eagle is called Bardenay.  In the summertime we like to dine on the patio which sits right by the Boise River and the “greenbelt”, a 20 mile mostly-paved path which follows along the Boise River, one of our city’s cultural icons.   We love the chicken satay (grilled skewers) appetizers and sometimes I pair them with a simple green salad to create the perfect meal.

I’ve tried to recreate them for you with this yummy recipe inspired by a Eating Well magazine recipe here.  You can see from all the Asian ingredients that they are flavorful and fresh.  They go very well with yesterday’s Asian Soba Noodle Salad with Ginger Dressing.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4-6 servings

  • Thai Chicken Satay With Spicy Peanut Sauce
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp fish sauce (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1/2 tsp chile garlic sauce

  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp chili garlic sauce
  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Whisk lime juice, sesame oil, soy sauce, fish sauce and chili garlic sauce in a shallow dish until combined; add chicken and turn to coat. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
  3. For the Peanut Sauce: Combine peanut butter, coconut milk, sesame oil, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and chili garlic sauce in small bowl; whisk until smooth.
  4. Thread one or two chicken tenders onto a wooden skewer. Wrap end of skewer with aluminum foil to prevent burning.
  5. Place on prepared grill. Grill until cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, about 3 minutes per side. Serve warm or chilled with Spicy Peanut Sauce.
  6. Ingredient note: Fish sauce is a pungent Southeast Asian sauce made from salted, fermented fish. You can find it in the Asian section of large supermarkets and in Asian specialty markets.

    Made this for a baby shower and EVERYONE wanted the recipe. It was so easy and has just the right amount of spice. Leftovers taste great microwaved. The most time consuming part was cutting up the chicken! Next time maybe I’ll try using whole boneless breasts and cooking them on my George Foreman grill. YUMMY!
