Grilled Chicken Satays with Peanut Dipping Sauce

chicken satays

This popular Malaysia treat on a stick is something I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. Since I’ve been grilling lots of chicken over the past month, I decided to try out some grilled chicken satays too. This recipe uses a quick acting marinade that adds a ton of flavor to the chicken. Instead of using my outdoor grill to cook these, I used an indoor counter top eclectic Cuisinart griddler. You can also use a grill pan on the stove top.

These tasty little chicken strips on a stick are such a treat for kids and adults alike, because who doesn’t like food on a stick? I made a peanut dipping sauce to go along with them. We all loved them. I served these chicken satays with a simple tossed salad.

I added this along with 4 more great grilled chicken recipes you can find here on the Best Grilled Chicken Recipes page at

    According to your directions, the grill would be running for 2-3 hours.
