Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce is not an authentic Thai recipe, but a typical American version of a Thai takeout restaurant. Stay At Home Chef uses ingredients that are readily available to most people in the US and Canada, making it easy for anyone to sample world cuisine, even if they have limited travel opportunities or limited access to local ingredients.

fish sauce:

Fish sauce adds to the balance of flavors and we highly recommend adding it. However, you can substitute it for 1 extra tablespoon of soy sauce.

coconut milk:

You will want to use canned full fat coconut milk in this recipe. Coconut milk in the refrigerated plant milk section of the grocery store just won’t work.

Chicken Cut Options:

We know that when it comes to chicken breasts and thighs, there are strong opinions. You can use whatever you like, both options will taste amazing! If you do use chicken thighs, be sure to cook them until the internal temperature reaches 175°F. The extra cooking time to reach a higher temperature makes it chew better. For more chicken cut options, this marinade will also taste great on wings and drumsticks. try it!

Cooking options for Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce:

We’ve always loved the smell of grilling, but you can always cook indoors on the stovetop in a heavy-duty skillet or griddle.

oven: Preheat oven to 450°F. Prepare recipe as usual. Grill the kebabs on a lightly greased baking sheet for 12-15 minutes, turning halfway through, then cook on high for 3-4 minutes to brown the edges.

stove: Alternatively, you can make kebabs on the stovetop using a griddle or heavy frying pan. Just like a grill, you need to preheat your skillet to high heat. Bake the roast in a pan over high heat for about 10 minutes, until the meat is cooked through, rotating every few minutes. Be careful not to overcrowd the pan.

Service suggestion:

Jasmine or coconut rice pairs well with this dish as well as your favorite steamed vegetables.
