Is anyone tired of burgers yet? Maybe you need a break from grilled sausages or steak? Or maybe you just want something that can be grilled in less than 10 minutes so you can get back to watching The Olympics? Yep, Busted. Well don’t worry, I’ve got you covered, these Chicken Satays are perfect.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one who is completely obsessed with the Olympics? The amount of TV I’ve watched this week is shameful. It’s probably more than I watched all of last year combined. With the Olympics being on literally all day, not much has been going on in the kitchen other than quick meals like these Grilled Shrimp Skewers and Seared Scallops with Spinach. But that’s kind of a good thing because everyone is always on the lookout for fast and easy recipes, and today I’m sharing one of my favourites. It’s been a while since I posted a chicken recipe, but I find that everyone is always on the hunt for new ways to use chicken. Change up your grilling routine with these Chicken Satays – you won’t be disappointed.

Chicken Satays
Recipe by Lou


1 lbs chicken strips

For the Marinade:
zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
1 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 tsp coriander
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp brown sugar

For dipping sauce:
Remaining marinade
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp peanut butter


In a large bowl whisk the ingredients for the marinade.

Add chicken strips to bowl and toss to coat.

Refrigerate and marinate for at least one hour to overnight.

Once done marinating, skewer the chicken, one piece per skewer.

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side.

Meanwhile, make the sauce. Combine the water and remaining marinade. Heat over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Boil for 1-2 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken slightly. Turn off heat and stir in peanut butter.

I hope you enjoy changing up the grilling routine, let me know if you love them as much as I do!
