So I have had this on my list of things to make for quite some time. I used to LOVE getting chicken satay at Thai restaurants but more often than not, the chicken would be SO DRY! So obviously I set out to make my own version! My goals? To make it JUICY and FLAVORFUL AF!
So I cut the chicken into thin strips (which can be tricky- so do small dices if you want) and soaked it in a giant creamy bath of coconut milk with spices! The marinade smelled absolutely delicious and my mission of juicy chicken was definitely accomplished!
You could marinate these over night but I let them sit for just about two hours and that worked for me! I think next time I make these I will serve them with my Masala Fried Rice too for a more complete dinner meal.
I cooked these on the griddle pan I love, check it out in my Kitchen Essentials post! If you don’t have one, you could just put them in a cast iron skillet- and to help them get that nice brown sear on them- just place something heavy like a lid or a put directly on the chicken strips as they are cooking! I think a panini press, table top skillet or a George Foreman grill would be great too!
I hope you guys enjoy this recipe! If you do try it, be sure to send me a picture or comment below and make sure you are following along on my instagram @thechutneylife!
