Grilled peanut satay marinated chicken skewers

These chicken skewers combined with the peanut satay sauce are an incredible combination, a guaranteed winner with the whole family!!


The marinade was so good I made another batch for a dipping sauce but just added a little more water so it wasn’t as thick.

Prep 2 hours
Total 2 hours 15 minutes
  1. Cut the chicken into decent sized pieces and place in a large bowl.
  2. Blitz all the marinade ingredients in a blender for about 30 seconds (add a little bit more water if necessary but you want quite a thick consistency)
  3. Pour the marinade over the chicken and combine well before placing in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  4. 30 minutes before grilling the skewers, pull them out of the fridge to allow them to come back up to room temperature (this will allow the chicken to cook evenly throughout) then carefully pierce each piece onto a skewer. Once all four skewers are filled, place onto a baking tray covered in foil. (I was using wooden skewers for this recipe so I also covered the end of the skewers in foil so they didn’t burn)
  5. Pre heat the grill to medium and cook the skewers for 7 minutes each side until cooked through making sure to allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving. Cooking times may vary depending on how big you cut chicken pieces into. 


Optional:

  1. I topped my chicken skewers with fresh coriander, fresh chilli and served on a platter with some lemon and chilli infused wholegrain rice, tenderstem broccoli, fresh lime and a pot of peanut dipping sauce which I topped with fresh chilli and crushed peanuts.

Keeping fit and having a healthy diet is such a big part of my life, I want to encourage as many people as possible to be the healthiest version of themselves. Cooking is never a chore to me and I absolutely love creating new recipes for my family to enjoy.


Whenever I am cooking I like to use wholefoods and avoid processed foods, dairy, refined carbs and refined sugar as much as possible…. But I never sacrifice FLAVOUR!!!
