Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Tender and juicy Chicken Satay marinated in the most delicious peanut ginger sauce and grilled to perfection for the perfect easy weeknight dinner!  Serve over rice or salad and drizzled with my homemade peanut sauce.

Yield: 8 skewers 1x


Serve with:


  1. Place chicken in a large bowl or ziplock bag.
  2. To make the marinade, whisk together all the ingredients until combined. Reserve a couple tablespoons  of the marinade and pour the rest over top of chicken until completely coated. Seal the bag or cover and marinate chicken in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, this is a good time to whip up the delicious peanut dipping sauce!  Simply whisk together all the ingredients for the peanut sauce in a medium bowl and set aside until ready to serve.
  4. If using wooden skewers, make sure to let them soak in warm water for 30 minutes to an hour to prevent them from charring too much on the grill.  Thread the chicken onto the skewers (about 5 pieces per skewer) and preheat the grill or grill pan on medium-high heat, making sure to spray the grill grates with non-stick spray to prevent the chicken from sticking.
  5. Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook them about 5 to 6 minutes on each side, brushing with the reserved marinade until the chicken is cooked through.  The internal temp should read 165 degrees F with a meat thermometer.
  6. Top with chopped cilantro and green onions, if desired, and drizzle on some of the peanut sauce.  Enjoy!
