Hi! It’s Pepper here with a recipe from my new book, The Pepper Thai Cookbook, which is out now. Hope you love it!
There are a million chicken satay recipes on the Internet. Why should you make this one? The sauce! Spicy curry paste and a peanut sauce made with sweet chile jam add so much depth to the grilled chicken. Plus, I make the peanut sauce with pounded roasted peanuts, which give it a chunkier texture and richer flavor than using plain old peanut butter. Coconut milk shows up in two places: mixed into the rich and creamy sauce and in the chicken marinade to keep the meat moist and tender (nobody likes dry satay). It’s important to let the chicken marinate for at least 2 hours before cooking, so do that first. You can also prepare the marinade the day before and let the meat sit overnight in the fridge.
