I had always wanted to know how to make chicken satay, and I found this tasty and easy recipe thanks to a friend and member of the Co-op. You could make this recipe vegetarian with tofu or tempeh as well. Use leftover sauce on rice, veggies, or as a dipping sauce for Thai spring rolls. Yum!


1/2 cup
coconut milk
1 clove
1 teaspoon
curry powder
1 1/2 teaspoon
brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon
1 dash
black pepper
1 pound
chicken breasts
wooden skewers


To make the marinade: Stir together coconut milk, garlic, curry powder, brown sugar, salt, and pepper. Toss marinade with the chicken. Cover, and marinate for about 2 hours.

Use this Peanut Sauce recipe.

Preheat a grill at medium-high heat (or use a broiler). Thread marinated chicken onto skewers, then grill 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Serve warm with peanut sauce.
