    Chicken satay skewers

    Serves: 4
    Total Time: 30 minutes


    • 1/4  cup roasted peanuts, chopped
    • 1 tbsp light brown sugar
    • 1 cup coconut milk

    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.
