Step by Step Method

Step 1

To make the marinade combine the curry paste, curry powder, pepper, salt, sugar, garlic powder and coconut milk in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Slice the chicken against the grain into 2-inch inch square tiles about 1/4-inch thick. Add to the marinade and massage coat it evenly. You can cook immediately or marinade overnight for better flavor and tenderness.

Step 3

Thread the chicken onto the bamboo skewers, leaving 2 inches at bottom of each skewer.

Step 4

Heat a grill or griddle to high and preheat for at least 5 minutes. Rub a little oil on the grill or spray with pan spray to prevent sticking. Grill the chicken for about 3 to 5 minutes on the first side or until it is a nice brown. Flip and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes until just cooked through. Serve with peanut sauce.

For Sauce Directions

Step 5

Heat the oil in a small saucepan over high heat. When hot, stir-fry the curry paste for about a minute or until very fragrant and thick.

Step 6

Stir in the coconut milk and bring it to a boil; cook for 2 minutes while constantly stirring. Do not let it boil over.

Step 7

Add the peanut butter, stirring constantly, until the sauce begins to thicken and come together, about 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 8

Reduce the heat to a simmer and add the fish sauce, rice vinegar and sugar. Cook the sauce for 1 minute more, then remove it from the heat.

Step 9

(If an oily film rises to the top; skim it off or stir it in.)


  • 10 to 15 six-inch bamboo skewers, soaked

I scaled back for one serve and used thigh fillets, hot Madras curry powder and crunchy peanut butter otherwise made as per recipe and served with a garden salad for a low carb dinner and that sauce is just so delicious and I still have about half left over so I am seeing chicken satay pizza being made during the week to finish of the sauce, pizza being my treat for the week as it is not low carb. Thank you Linky for a very delicious and filling meal, made for Only The Lonely tag game at FF&F.
