Transcript:How to Make Chicken SatayHi, I am Gretchen Siegchrist for About.com Food, and I am going to show you how to make chicken satay.
Chicken Satay IngredientsThis is a fun dish that is great at parties, and you can make it on the grill or in your oven. For this recipe you will need:
- 1 lb. chicken
- ½ of a small onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 1 Tbsp fresh ginger
- ½ tsp turmeric
- 1 Tbsp coriander
- 1 tsp cumin
- 2 Tbsp soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp fish sauce
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar
- ¼ cup vegetable oil
- juice from 1 lime
You will also need a mortar and pestle, a blender, and wooden skewers.
Chicken PreparationBegin by cutting the chicken into thin strips about half an inch wide and two inches long. Coarsely chop the onion, garlic, and ginger and add them to the blender. Crush the coriander in the mortar and pestle and then add that to the blender as well. Add the turmeric, cumin, soy sauce, fish sauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil, and lime juice to the blender, and blend these ingredients until they are smooth.
Marinate the ChickenPlace the chicken pieces in a large, heavy duty, sealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken and seal the bag. Make sure the chicken is well coated and place it in the refrigerator to marinate for at least four hours or as long as overnight.
Cooking the ChickenBefore cooking, you will need to soak the skewers in water for at least 20 minutes so that they do not burn. Thread each chicken piece onto the top half of a skewer, leaving the bottom half free as a handle. You can cook the chicken skewers on the grill or under the broiler. You will want to cook them for about ten minutes or so, flipping them halfway through.
Serve the chicken satay with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy.
