This appetizer is great for entertaining, easy to walk around with, no cutlery involved, and can stack for a beautiful display. I first had these at a baby shower and I was blown away, so I begged for the recipe.
I have substituted different proteins, and I have made beef satay and pork satay and switched out different ingredients based on what I had in the house. This a great mixture of flavors, this low carb appetizer is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
1.5 lb organic chicken or 4 chicken breasts
1 onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
2 packets of stevia or 2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional for a little heat)
salt and pepper
4 tbsp peanut butter (either crunchy or creamy will work)
1 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp nam pla (Thai fish sauce)
1 tsp lemon juice
*1/2 cup walnuts – optional
salt and pepper
Place skewers in cold water to soak.
Cut chicken into thin strips 4 in. / 1 in. long
Make the marinade by combining all the ingredients in a bowl with flat bottom, mix well. Add the chicken into the marinade. Mix well until chicken is thoroughly coated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let the chicken marinade overnight.
Set boiler to low. Thread meat onto pre-soaked skewers like an accordion. Put chicken skewers onto foiled pan, broil for 10 minutes or until meat is thoroughly cooked.
You will need to turn the meat over half way through cooking time and brush it with extra marinade, I also like to brush it with a little of the satay sauce.
While the chicken is cooking, mix together the ingredients for the satay sauce, cook them in a saucepan for 5 minute on medium heat. Serve sauce in a ramekin with the chicken skewers. Enjoy!!
