I'm sure there are a million different variations on Chicken Satay, but this is mine and what I love about it is that it's quick and easy, but also delicious. This recipe is presented as a meal that serves 4 hungry people but can probably stretch to 6 if you need it to, however without the rice, these skewers work wonderfully as a starter or party nibbles. This dish works well on individual plates, but it can also look impressive with the rice and skewers spread out over a long platter. However you choose to serve it, it's delicious!
4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1/3 cup light soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into strips
4 cups cooked white rice (or other rice of your choice)
1. Preheat the grill/broiler on high and if you're using wooden skewers, put them in water to soak. If you're using metal skewers, there's no need to soak.
2. Mix the peanut butter, soy sauce and cayenne pepper together with a hand whisk until smooth.
3. Stir in the chicken carefully until coated with the peanut butter mixture. I like to do this with a rubber spatula but you could use a wooden spoon.
4. In a layering fashion, thread the strips onto the skewers lengthwise, folding over and layering as you go. Place on a rack over a grill pan and cook for about 6 minutes before turning the skewers and cooking for an additional 6 minutes on the other side or until full cooked.
5. To serve, place chicken skewers across a bed of rice with lemon wedges on the side.
