Indonesian Chicken Satay
(marinated chicken on skewers)
Enjoy this delicious dish with a great bottle of wine, such as a St. Urbans Hof Estate Bottled Riesling QbA ($15.99 at Cool Springs Wines & Spirits).
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons tomato ketchup
1 tablespoon peanut oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tsp ground chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast
halves - cubed
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 cup coconut milk
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Chili sauce to taste
1. In a bowl, mix soy sauce, tomato sauce, peanut oil, garlic, black pepper, and cumin.
2. Place chicken into the mixture, and stir to coat.
3. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes, but not overnight. This will make the meat too dark.
4. Preheat the grill for high heat.
5. Heat vegetable oil in a saucepan over medium heat, and saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Mix in water, peanut butter, soy sauce, and sugar.
6. Cook and stir until well blended. Remove from heat, mix in lemon juice, and set aside.
7. Lightly oil the grill grate. Thread chicken onto skewers, and discard marinade.
8. Grill skewers about 5 minutes per side, until chicken juices run clear. Serve with the peanut sauce.
