Easiest Chicken Satay

This seasoned, grilled chicken is so juicy and flavorful no one will believe it was so easy to make. If you’re planning to cook the chicken indoors (in a cast-iron skillet), make sure you trim the wooden skewers to size before you thread the chicken onto them.

Ingredients

For the Chicken

  • 1 Pound chicken breast tenders
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ Teaspoon Korean red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

For the Peanut Sauce

  • ¼ Cup peanut butter
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 Tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon soy sauce
  • Pinch Korean red pepper flakes

For the Yogurt Sauce

  • ¼ Cup plain Greek yogurt
  • Juice of 1 Key lime
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt, to taste

For Serving

  • Bib lettuce leaves, optional
  • Bell peppers, thinly sliced, optional
  • Carrots, shredded, optional
  • Key lime wedges, optional

Directions

For the Chicken

Lay the chicken tenders flat on your cutting board and then, with the blade of your knife parallel to the board, cut the each in half lengthwise so that you have two wide, thin pieces. Put the chicken in a large bowl and cover with the sesame oil, soy sauce, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Let the chicken marinate for 20 minutes.

While the chicken marinates, soak your wooden skewers in water so that they don’t burn.

For the Peanut Sauce

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir until fully incorporated.

For the Yogurt Sauce

Combine all of the ingredients in a small bowl and stir until fully incorporated.

For Serving

After the chicken has marinated, thread it onto the wooden skewers. Preheat your grill. Then, grill the chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes per side.

Serve the chicken with the dipping sauces. If you want to make lettuce wraps, serve the chicken skewers with bibb lettuce leaves, thinly sliced bell peppers, shredded carrots, and Key lime wedges.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.
