Thai Red Curry paste is a “secret ingredient” in equally the marinade and the sauce. You simply need about 2.5 tbsp which doesn’t sound like much, but we don’t desire this to style of red curry. We’re simply utilizing it as a flavour enhancer.

I’m a agency believer that Chicken Satay skewers must be tasty sufficient to consume on their very own and the peanut sauce simply takes it over the top. So I desire to marinade the hen to make it additional tasty.
Chicken Satay Marinade

Red curry paste – see above for my advised model Maesri
Curry powder – any is effective here
Salt and sugar
It’s finest to marinade for a minimum of 3 hours but even 20 minutes is lengthy enough.

Chicken satay is a summertime favorite to prepare dinner at the BBQ. But I typically prepare dinner it at the range for convenience.
For a pretty genuine Thai experience, prepare dinner the Chicken Satay over charcoal like it’s finished in Thailand!
Thai Chicken Satay is a regular starter on Thai restaurants menus alongside with Thai Fish Cakes. But it’s also perfect served as a main. Serve it with steamed jasmine rice – or with fluffy Asian Coconut Rice (it’s amazing!).

Thai Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
Thai Chicken Satay Skewers are tasty sufficient to consume plain but we would by no capability skip Thai Peanut Sauce for dipping! The crucial component for a pretty huge peanut sauce is herbal peanut butter without a introduced sugar or oil. But average peanut butter will work effective too.
400 g/14oz coconut milk (1 can), full fat
13-16 bamboo skewers , 16cm / 6.5″ lengthy (Note 1)
600 g / 1.2lb hen thighs , boneless skinless, cut into 2cm/4/5″ items (Note 2)
1 tbsp curry powder (Note 3)
1 tsp white sugar
2 tsp red curry paste (Note 4)
1 tsp salt
THAI PEANUT SAUCE:
2 tbsp red curry paste (Note 4)
3/4 cup herbal peanut butter, tender (Note 5)
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp darkish soy sauce (Note 6)
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp cider vinegar (Note 7)
3/4 cup (185ml) water
2 tbsp peanuts finely chopped
Lime wedges (optional)
Coriander / cilantro leaves and sliced red chilli (optional)
If cooking on a BBQ or over charcoal, soak skewers for 2 hours in water.
THAI CHICKEN SATAY SKEWERS:
Mix collectively the hen and Marinade with 1/4 cup of coconut milk, then set apart for a minimum of 20 minutes, or overnight.
Thread onto skewers – I do four to 5 items each.
Heat 1.5 tbsp oil in a enormous non stick pan over medium excessive heat.
Cook skewers in batches for three minutes on every one facet till golden.
THAI PEANUT SAUCE:
Place ultimate coconut milk and Peanut Sauce meals in a saucepan over medium low heat.
Stir to mix then simmer, stirring every one now and then, for 5 minutes.
Adjust consistency with water – it must be a pourable but thickish sauce.
Cover with lid and maintain warm whereas cooking skewers.
Pour a few sauce correct into a bowl. Sprinkle with a few peanuts – stir a few by way of in case you want.
Pile satay skewers onto a platter, sprinkle with ultimate peanuts, coriander and chilli.
Serve with sauce at the facet for dipping.
1. Skewers used for Asian hen satay have a tendency to be shorter than Western skewers. I like them simply due to the fact they slot in skillets! Feel loose to make huge ones with longer skewers.
2. Chicken – could be substituted with breast or tenderloin but thigh is finest for juiciest chicken. Can also sub with red meat or pork – use a good, effectively marbled cut proper for fast cooking.
3. Curry powder – any is effective here. I use Clives or Keens.
4. Red curry paste – The finest Thai red curry paste (in my opinion) is Maesri which is achievable in small cans and in addition occurs to be the cheapest. Sold at enormous supermarkets (Coles, Woolies, Harris), Asian stores. But any model will do simply due to the fact it is an enhancer particularly than key flavouring.
If utilizing home made Thai red curry paste, double the curry paste, upload 1 tsp fish sauce + 1 tsp sugar into hen marinade, and 2 tsp fish sauce + 2 tsp sugar into Peanut Sauce (homemade does now not have the seasonings jar paste does).
5. Natural peanut butter is 100 pc peanuts and has a much better peanut flavour than commercial peanut butter which has sugar and different additives. It may be thinner so lots less water is needed to acquire the proper consistency. Pretty extensively on hand these days within the well being meals part of supermarkets.
Can use average peanut butter unfold however the peanut flavour isn’t as nice and sauce shall be thicker. Do now not be tempted to dilute with too a lot water – it’ll dilute the flavour.
Sub: 1 cup uncooked unsalted peanuts blitzed till tender with 1/2 cup or so coconut milk referred to as for within the peanut sauce (helps make it tremendous smooth).
6. Dark soy sauce provides seasoning and deepens shade of sauce. Can sub with pale or all aim soy sauce but sauce shade shall be lighter.
7. Cider vinegar could be subbed with plain white vinegar. Lime juice, rice vinegar or different clean vinegars are an ok replace but now not 100 pc authentic.
8. Peanut Sauce – makes additional than you’ll need, seemingly in elementary terms use 1/3. Hard to make less, also this recipe makes use of a total can of coconut milk. Lasts 1 week within the fridge – or freeze.
Use leftover for:
Sauce for for rice, noodles, veggies (raw or steamed)
Make a easy Gado Gado with steam veg, difficult boiled eggs and rice
Dip for prawn crackers and vegetables
As the dressing for this Chinese Chicken Salad, Satay Noodle Salad, Peanut Noodle Salad or Sesame Noodles
9. Nutrition is VERY overstated. It assumes all of the peanut sauce is ate up but in elementary terms realistically, in elementary terms 1/3 or so is likely.
