Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

A couple friends from work and I have decided to enhance our cooking repertoire so we've started getting together about once a week and having "cooking night". It's really been a lot of fun and we are making things that I probably wouldn't have ventured to make on my own. Cooking and learning with friends makes the experience SO enjoyable and food seems to taste even more amazing as well ;)

This recipe has to be one of my favorites that we have made thus far! SOOOOO delicious!

You will need:

3 Tbsp lime juice
1 tsp curry powder
2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp salt
2 cloves garlic, freshly chopped
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
Peanut Sauce (below)

Step One:

Mix all ingredients except chicken and Peanut Sauce. Place chicken in resealable plastic food-storage bag or shallow glass or plastic dish. Pour lime juice mixture over chicken; stir chicken to coat with lime juice mixture. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours, stirring occasionally.

Step Two:

If using bamboo skewers, soak in water at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.

Step Three:

Make Peanut Sauce.

Step Four:

Set oven control to broil. Spray rack in broiler pan with cooking spray. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Thread chicken on eight 8-inch skewers, leaving space between eachpiece. Place skewers on rack in broiler pan.

Step Five:

Broil with tops about 3 inches from head 4 minutes. Turn; bruch with marinade. Broil 4-5 minuteslonger or until chicken is no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining marinade. Serve chicken with sauce.

Peanut Sauce

You will Need:
  • 2/3 C vanilla yogurt
  • 1/4 C creamy peanut putter
  • 1/4 C coconut milk (not cream of coconut)
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 to 1/2 tsp red pepper sauce (you can use more and hotter sauce per your taste.)
Beat all ingredients with wire whisk.
