Thai Inspired Chicken Satay

Most of my recipes are less that 7 or 8 ingredients but a few will necessarily have a few more and this is one of the. This Thai inspired dish is a great and tasty way to do chicken. This might even be a good change of pace for a summer barbeque. Fresh lemongrass is found in specialty markets and really sends the flavors soaring.


Marinade:
½ cup creamy peanut butter
3 ounces soy sauce
Juice of one lime
Juice of one lemon
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2-3 tablespoons minced lemon grass
½ tablespoon chili paste
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 clove garlic minced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Water if needed
2 pounds boneless chicken breast cut into strips
Wooden skewers as needed


Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, lemon juice, sesame oil, brown sugar, lemon grass, chili paste, ginger, garlic and cilantro together to form a paste. Add in a little water if needed to thin the mixture. Next add in the chicken and allow marinating for at least 1-2 hours or overnight. Next remove and place each chicken strip on a skewer and grill over hot coals for 4-5 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Serve the chicken with peanut sauce. This dish is also great with pineapple or mango salsa


Peanut sauce:
1 cup peanut butter
¼ cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons red chili paste
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
Juice of two limes
½ cup hot water


Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, chili paste, brown sugar and lime juice and add in the water as needed to thin out the sauce.
