Fast food on a friday: Easy satay chicken with dipping sauce - mix once!

I know I like an easy recipe - no more than 10 ingredients, something that over time when you start to make it over and over you can just make by sight.  I think this recipe has the potential to be just that in my house.  At the end of the meal I had three little ladies practically BEGGING me for more.  The sauce is divine and what's even better about it, is it's one sauce, you make a big sauce, marinate in 2/3 of it, use the remaining third as a dipping sauce.  It really couldn't be easier unless you bought it in a jar (don't do that ;) )

I really hope you try this one, put it on the BBQ or a frypan - you'll love it.

2/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
2 tb soy sauce
2 tb brown sugar
2 tb lime juice
1 tsp grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 400g tin lite coconut cream
tops of 1 sprig of coriander, roughly chopped
1 kg chicken thighs
10 skewers

In a bowl mix the peanut butter, soy sauce, sugar, lime juice, ginger, garlic, coconut cream and coriander.

Pour 1/3 of the mixture into a container and put in the fridge.  Reserve the remaining 2/3 in the bowl or pour into a marinading tray.

Cut your chicken thighs into 4 or 5 strips, then put into the marinade.  Soak your skewers in some water.

After one hour of marinading/soaking thread the chicken onto the skewers in 'wriggly' pattern.  Set aside whilst you heat your grill/frypan on hot for about 5 minutes.  At this point if you're having rice, put it on.

Grill/fry your kebabs and turn until they are cooked fully.

Serve on rice and with salad - and of course your reserved dipping sauce!   I also make curly carrot with my vege twister (kids love it!)

@nic-1103 Should be fine hon, I would probably reduce the volume of it you put in though by 1/3 so it doesn't become too runny if you know what I mean? Let me know how it turns out! :)

It was absolutely delicious! My little girls polished theirs off in record time! And hubby and I also thoroughly enjoyed ours. I was lazy though and used breast meat and didn't bother threading it on skewers and just cooked it in the fry pan (too cold to go outside to the BBQ!!!) Will be putting definitely filing this one away as a keeper!
