PLEASE NOTE: This recipe calls for the GRILLING or BROILING of food. In most countries of the world, the term "grilling" refers to heat coming from above the food source. Significantly, in North America, it signifies heat from below the food (such as barbecuing). In the United States and Canada, when the heat source for grilling comes from above, grilling is termed broiling, and the pan that holds the food is usually called a broiler pan.


 

How to Cook Chicken Satay

  1. Peel the shallots and the garlic. Cut the chicken meat into small cubes of about ¾" (2cm). Place all the other paste ingredients except the cucumber in a food processor and grind to a paste. Add in a little water if needed. Marinate the chicken pieces in the spice paste for 10-12 hours (overnight in the fridge works well).
  2. For the Peanut Sauce, peel and grate (shred) the onion, peel and crush (mince) the garlic. Blend the chili powder with 1 teaspoon of cold water to make a paste. Heat the sunflower oil in a pan and add try gently until the onion is soft then add all the remaining sauce ingredients, stirring well to combine them together. When warm, transfer the sauce to a serving bowl and serve warm with the satay.
  3. Thread the chicken onto bamboo skewers and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve hot with fresh cucumber slices and the peanut sauce.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 2 hours before grilling, to avoid burning
