Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Creamy Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 cup light Coconut Milk, stirred
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 limes, juiced and zested
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder

  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken tenders
  • wooden skewers, soaked in water

Instructions 

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, coconut milk, fish sauce, lime juice, lime zest, garlic, minced ginger, cumin, curry, and crushed red pepper; whisk to combine.
  • Remove half of the marinade and reserve.
  • Add the chicken tenders to the large bowl (or in a ziploc bag together with the marinade) and toss to coat.
  • Set in the fridge for 30 minutes, or up to 3 ours to marinate.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Thread the chicken tenders onto the skewers.
  • Brush grill grates with oil and place chicken skewers on the grill.
  • Cook for 5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is charred and cooked through.
  • Remove from grill and garnish with sliced green onions and peanuts.
  • Serve with the reserved satay sauce and a cucumber salad.

Notes

  • If preparing the chicken satay skewers in the oven, preheat oven to 450F, place the skewers on a large baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, flip the skewers, and continue to bake for another 5 minutes or until cooked through.
