Chicken Satay

This recipe is taking chicken breast to the next level of deliciousness. Chicken satay is a Thai influenced dish that is typically marinated, grilled, and served with a peanut sauce. This recipe differs slightly as the peanut sauce flavours are actually in the marinade. And It is SO good.

Cooking With Chicken

If you like cooking with chicken, the breasts in particular, but hate when it’s tough and dry, I can ensure you that that will be last thing that comes to mind as you eat this chicken.

The chicken is made in a flavourful marinade with peanut butter, lime, soy sauce and more. It’s super healthy, and a great source of protein. There are many different side dishes that pair nicely with this meal. I HIGHLY recommend trying my Thai Salad recipe. Easily one of my favourite meals I’ve ever made.

Satay Marinade

This chicken satay is super delicious and great to prep in advance. With a powerful tasting marinade that has an incredible flavour. The peanut butter and coconut milk give it a sweet taste, that is counter balanced by the saltiness from the soy sauce and the sharpness from the lime juice. These flavours are all blended together with the addition of a few spices to really seal the deal.

Making a Meal

While there are many yummy things you could pair alongside of this chicken, my favourite is a daikon and vermicelli Thai Salad. Which I just so happen to be posting as well! Check it out here.

I'd like to consider myself a food and coffee enthusiast. I always get excited to create eat flavourful recipes that fuel my mind and my body. A few of my favourite foods consist of salads (the fun kind), sourdough bread, avocados, and almond butter. My coffee order is an iced americano with oatmilk no matter the weather.
