Satay Dinner


I found a lazy way to eat and grill my satay!  No troublesome and messy way of pricking the marinated meat through a satay stick anymore.  I cut the chicken breast thinly and grill it on my in-door grill.  Our out-door grill, used only couple of times, sadly had been abused by the Colorado weather through strong wind, heat and snow and now was a piece of junk.  I bought this in-door grill 10+ years ago via a home shopping network on T.V.  Yeah, I used to love those channels and loved to see what they were selling.  It was a great buy even though  I only used it occasionally.

The finished product!  Of course you can use boneless thigh meat if you prefer more fat.


Eaten with Malaysian satay sauce.  I used a premix for this, if you want to see which premix I used, click here. If you are using this premix, add 2 heap tablespoons of creamy peanut butter and some toasted ground peanuts when stirring.  Lastly, add more toasted ground peanuts to garnish and for extra kick. If not, you can make a delicious peanut satay sauce here using my short-cut and delicious recipe.

Clever! :) It can get really boring eating the same old rice or noodle dishes, and this is definitely a nice change.

I definitely prefer dark thigh meat...and satay is good any day!

I find this a better and more convenient way of doing satay except the meat will be without the burnt charcoal flavour. But the sauce makes up for it. Marvellous, despite being away from the home of satays, you have done a very good job. Cheers!

Thanks Ju. I think so too.

Hehe Belinda. I know what you mean.

Lilyng, what a coincident!

You were exactly right busygran! It's without the burnt charcoal flavor, but the sauce made up for it. You were good! :)

Haha Rita, those are more moist. :)

Thanks Jess.

Thanks a mother. It's my lazy way. :)

Daphne, you really need to try the easy satay sauce, it's really tasted delicious and authentic, even though it's short cut.

It's a great idea to have satay for dinner. Both my hubby and I miss it so much that we are searching for a good one in Singapore. ;)
