Chicken Satay SkewersPosted by in Food
I’m a sucker for satay, so I made Chicken Satay Skewers from April Martha Stewart Everyday Food. Some of you might remember the last time I used skewers for a Martha recipe – the skewers burned and fell apart. This time I soaked my skewers for several hours before using them. Aren’t I clever? Well, we’ll see….
I sliced my chicken and marinated it in the soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and red pepper. I actually let it sit in the fridge a few hours even though the recipe does not say to do so. I made the peanut sauce – peanut butter, salt, pepper, red pepper, rice vinegar and red pepper. This was more of a paste than a dipping sauce. I actually ended up adding a little more water to try to get it to loosen up.
I threaded the chicken onto the skewers and cooked it on the Jenn-Air (outdoor grilling season isn’t here yet!). Even though I soaked the skewers, they still turned black and fell apart. What the heck! That really annoyed me, I must say! Next time I’m just going to cook the chicken strips without skewers.
The chicken was good, but I would have liked it to have a more Asian flavor – maybe some ginger or more soy sauce. The dipping sauce (paste!) was good, but if I made that again I would put some chopped green onion in it and some soy sauce too.
This was a nice quick weekday dinner that didn’t take a lot of work. I would definitely make it again. Even Mini-Martha liked the chicken (but wouldn’t taste the dipping sauce).
