Peanut Dipping Sauce:

  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to Make Chicken Satay Skewers with Sauce:

Step 1:

If using, place wooden skewers in a bowl of water until ready to prepare chicken. Set aside.

Step 2:

In a large mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, hot sauce, maple syrup, lime juice, garlic, and fresh ginger. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired, and add the chicken strips. Cover and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight. Turn chicken at least once while marinating.

Step 3:

To prepare the peanut sauce, combine the chicken stock, peanut butter, soy sauce, maple syrup, cayenne pepper, lime juice, and garlic powder in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer gently, stirring frequently, until the sauce is smooth and slightly thickened, around 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a serving container. Top with fresh cilantro and roasted peanuts and set aside.

Step 4:

To prepare chicken, clean the grates on a gas grill with a stiff wire brush and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Close the lid and preheat the grill to medium. (To prepare indoors, spray a grill pan with non-stick cooking spray and set heat to just below medium-high).

Step 5:

Thread chicken strips onto prepared skewers and place over direct medium heat. Close the cover and cook, turning once, until nicely browned and cooked through, approximately 4-6 minutes per side. (If cooking indoors, increase cooking time to 5-7 minutes per side).

Step 6:

Remove from heat and serve immediately with the peanut dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy this chicken satay appetizer!
