Satay chicken skewers are a deliciously popular dish from Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia and Malaysia. To make the dish, marinate bite-sized chicken pieces in a mixture of spices and coconut milk. Then skewer the marinated chicken and grill it over hot coals. Serve the skewers with a spicy peanut sauce and a side of rice or cucumber salad.
The satay chicken marinade
The marinade for satay chicken includes a combination of spices such as turmeric, cumin, coriander, lemongrass, and ginger. These spices not only add flavor but also give the chicken a beautiful golden color. The coconut milk in the marinade adds a creamy texture and helps keep the chicken moist while grilling.

Satay Chicken On Skewers
- Cut the chicken in 3cm chunks.
- Grate the ginger finely and crush the garlic.
- Put all the ingredients in a bowl and make sure all the meat is covered with the mixture.
- Place the bowl covered with foil in the fridge for about 5 hours to marinate the meat. You can also prepare the chicken a day before use, the taste will be even better.
- After marinating the chicken, thread the chicken on to the skewers. For 2 persons we would like to recommend to have 2 sticks each.
- Preheat the griddle pan until it's really hot. When a pan is really hot you have less chance that the meat will stick. Griddle the chicken until cooked.
- Serve the satay chicken on skewers with peanut sauce & chunky chips or with rice and a nice salad.
