Servings: 12

2 1/2 pounds frozen boneless, skinless chicken thighs, thawed wooden or bamboo skewers

Marinade:

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 tablespoons oyster sauce (you can use fish sauce if you like)
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Coconut Peanut Sauce:

Marinade:

Throw all ingredients into the blender, and blend on high for 2 minutes. Pour into a zipper top bag with thawed chicken. Let marinate for at least an hour (24 hours is fab.) I would add a stalk of unchopped lemongrass here too, but I didn't have any. Put it in the marinade, and discard after.

Cut marinated chicken into 2 inch chunks. Soak bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes, so they don't burn when cooking (I know, I should have soaked them longer, but I was hungry...). Thread chicken onto skewers and place on a foil-lined broiler pan (or on a baking sheet). Broil on high for 12 minutes, flip skewers and broil for another 12 minutes. Remove from oven to cool.

Coconut Peanut Sauce:

Throw all ingredients into the blender and blend on high for 3 minutes. Serve with chicken satay skewers.

This sounds great. But I read that ALL peanut crops are genetically modified, so unless there are non-GMO peanuts, I won't use them. Does anybody know?

thanks

I used Tempeh instead of Chicken for an amazing vegan dish! If you don't want to use peanut butter in the sauce other nut butters will work as well, I used half peanut butter and half cashew butter and it was DELICIOUS!!!! My boyfriend went NUTS! He loved it!!

You can use any type of nut butter if you don't want to use peanut butter!

Can you tell me how many skewers and what size of skewers (6", 8" or 12") this uses for 12 servings?

Minus the vegetable oil, subbed EVOO; minus the brown sugar, subbed 1 T honey; minus the oyster sauce, subbed 2-3 T coconut aminos, and this is a GREAT marinade. And I'll use cashew/almond butter combos, coconut aminos, and honey, again, for the nut sauce! Fabulous!
