The Reverend’s Chicken Satay
As mentioned on a previous blog, I really love chicken satay. This love developed further after a trip to Thailand. Since then I have tried to recreate a good chicken satay using parts of various recipes I’ve found. Here is The Reverend’s interpretation of a quick and easy Chicken Satay to impress anyone.
- Chicken Thighs. You could use breast but I like how juicy thighs are. A packet should be fine.
- Coconut milk
- Peanut Butter
- A lime/Lime Juice
- About an inch of Ginger
- 2 Cloves of garlic
- 1 Tbsp Soy
- 3 Tbsp Clear Honey
- 1 Tbsp Curry Powder
- Skewers (not needed but can be used)
- Grate the Ginger and add to a bowl
- Crush the garlic and add to the bowl
- Add the juice of a lime (or tip some from the bottle like I did!)
- Add the Soy, Honey and curry powder
- Add about half a can of coconut milk
- Mix thoroughly
- Cut chicken in bits
- Add the chicken and makes sure all the meat is covered
- Cover with Clingfilm
- Put in the fridge to marinade overnight or as long as possible
- Take out of fridge
- lift chicken out of mix and put on a grill tray(if you have skewers then put the chicken on the skewers before putting on grill)
- Put chicken under the grill
- Use a spoon to take all remaining satay sauce and put in a saucepan on the hob. (Medium Heat)
- Try not to let the sauce boil but it needs to be cooked through
- Keep turning the chicken to make sure it is cooked evenly
- Add coconut water to the satay sauce a tablespoon at a time to get a good consistency and colour
- When chicken is cooked, add to a plate and either pour the sauce over it or add to a dish on the side.
- Serve however you want, I enjoy mine with salad.
So there you have it. Home made chicken satay…The Reverend Style. You can mix it up quite easily – never be too scared with the flavours. Good additions are some fresh chillies chopped up finely and sprinkled on top. Or maybe some crushed peanuts. I drizzled some sauce on the salad as I love satay sauce! I really should have made an oriental salad with my dinner but I was just using up stuff I had already so mixed leaves, cucumber, peppers and spring onion. Lovely.
