Chicken satay – grilled chicken skewers marinated with spices and served with peanut sauce. Easiest and BEST chicken satay recipe ever!
There are many variations of chicken satay recipes from Asia, but let me tell you that the best satay comes from Malaysia, my home country. Ask any foodies and chefs who have been to the entire Southeast Asia region and they will agree with me. While Thai chicken sate is delicious, they can’t be compared to the deep and rich flavors of Malaysian chicken satay.
Chicken Satay Recipe
Serves 6 people | Active Time: 50 Minutes
4 chicken legs and thighs (preferred) or 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
Bamboo skewers, soaked in cold water for 2 hours
1 cucumber, cut into small pieces
1 small onion, quartered
Oil, for basting
3 tablespoons oil
2 stalks lemongrass, white parts only
2 cloves garlic, peeled
6 shallots, peeled
2 teaspoons turmeric powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon salt, or to taste

Cut the chicken meat into small cubes. Blend the Marinade ingredients in a food processor. Add in a little water if needed. Marinate the chicken pieces for 6 hours or best overnight. Thread a few pieces of the chicken meat onto the bamboo skewers and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until nicely charred. Baste and brush with some oil while grilling. Serve hot with the fresh cucumber pieces and onions.
