Grilled Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Satay is famous among Asian countries, especially in Southeast Asia. Wikipedia said it may originate in Java, Indonesia. It's very easy and simple recipes, consisting cubed beef on bamboo skewers. There's various type of sauce to serve satay with. Some people use black soy sauce, sliver of onion and chili (Asian love chili very much). But my favorite is peanut sauce. Here's the complete recipe.

INGREDIENTS

satay :
1 pound boneless chicken, cubed.
bamboo skewers

season sauce :
4 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
3 tablespoon peanut paste
2 tablespoon oil
bamboo skewers

peanut paste :
1/2 pound dry roasted peanut (unsalted)
500 ml coconut milk
salt

peanut sauce :
peanut paste
6 tablespoon sweet soy sauce
a cup red onion
chili powder

DIRECTIONS

Blend all peanut paste ingredients on blender together. Put four cubed chicken on each skewers. In a small bowl, stir together sweet soy sauce, peanut paste and oil to make season sauce.

Preheat the grill for medium heat.

Grill the chicken satay for about 5 minutes each side(medium done). Remove from the grill and dipped in season sauce. Grill again until completely done.

To make peanut sauce, blend all peanut sauce ingredients and cook over low heat for about ten minutes (stir constantly). Serve hot with grilled satay.
