Indonesian Satay with Peanut Sauce - YUM!


Dan and I have been loving our BBQ this summer and keep trying to find new recipes that involve anything grilled. I recently tried this recipe for Indonesian Satay with Peanut Sauce and it did not disappoint. This is a really quick and simple meal packed full of flavor with a peanut sauce that will rock your world. I am seriously serious about this. Try it tonight.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons tomato sauce (I only had pizza sauce and it worked great)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (or any vegetable oil)
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cumin
  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • skewers

Directions

  1. In a bowl, mix soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, black pepper, and cumin. Place chicken into the mixture, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, but not overnight. This will make the meat too dark.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Mix in water, peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar. Cook and stir until well blended. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.
  4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade. Grill skewers about 5 minutes per side, until chicken juices run clear. Serve with the peanut sauce.

** Notes - I only had time to marinate the chicken for about 20 minutes and even what that small amount of time, there was a lot of flavor. Also, if using wood skewers, I highly recommend soaking them in water for about 20 minutes prior to using. I did not do this and they burned off almost instantly once on the grill - oops! Happy Cooking!**
