Chicken satay skewers

Serves: 4
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1/4  cup roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 kg chicken thighs, skin removed and chopped



Stir all ingredients (except the chicken) in a medium bowl until well combined.


Thread chicken onto eight 23 cm metal skewers and evenly coat with half the satay sauce. We recommend using a pastry brush to assist.


Cook skewers on a heated oiled grill plate for 10 minutes, occasionally brushing with remaining satay sauce, until chicken is cooked.


FOOD TEAM TIP: Enjoy these satay skewers on a bed of crunchy asian inspired slaw that consistent of cabbage spring onions, bean sprouts, celery coriander and pear if you like . ad instead of the normal mayonnaise dressing try a spicy dressing of red chilli, lime juice, soy sauce and peanut oil.
