grilled chicken skewers & peanut satay sauce
From those of you who came to the BBQ last saturday I know you've been sitting there patiently waiting for me to post this recipe up. It has arrived, at long last!!! I wasn't trying to torture anyone with the wait, it's just I know that a certain friend of mine may or may not be having a BBQ tomorrow & I can't let hers be better than mine. Teasing, Alex... x
Sunday is cook day & I figured since I was already sat in front of the computer thinking of recipes to butcher & making my shopping list, that I would share this gem. I actually improvised this recipe almost two years ago.... Considering how great the impromptu session turned out last time, I decided to try it again for my birthday bash.
Ingredients: - 1.5 cups peanuts - 1 cup chicken stock - 2 tbs gluten free sweet soy sauce - 1 tbs sugar - 1 tbs tamarind pulp - 1 tbs butter - 3 tbs olive oil - 3 garlic cloves - 3 onions, diced - 2 lemon grass stalks - 1 tbs fresh ginger - 1 tbs coriander - 1 tbs red curry paste - 3 tbs peanut butter - 400ml coconut milk - 1/2 lemon, juiced - 1/2 lime, juiced
Directions, sauce: 1. saute the onions on medium-low heat with a tablespoon of butter until they are soft & translucent, about 10 minutes. 2. add garlic, lemongrass, ginger & coriander & continue to saute for an additional 3 minutes. 3. add the tamarind paste, sugar, peanut butter, sweet soya sauce, lemon juice, lime juice & red curry past, turn the heat up to medium & cook for a further five minutes. 4. add the peanuts, chicken stock & coconut milk & continue to cook until the sauce has reached the desired level of thickness. 5. remove the lemon grass before serving.
Directions, chicken: 1. dissolve one chicken bouillon cube in 3 cups of hot water & allow it to cool. 2. cut chicken into cubes & skewer them. 3. place the skewered chicken into a container & pour in the broth, allow to soak over night. 4. drain the liquid, season with salt & pepper & place on the bbq.
Helpful tips: 1. If you wish to exclude the bbq or skewers from the recipe, the chicken can be prepared in any other way one desires & just add the sauce later.
