How to cook
Step 1
  • Cut the chicken meat into small cubes. Set aside.
Step 2
  • Blend all the marinade ingredients in a food processor. Add a little water if needed.
Step 4
  • Combine the chicken and the marinade together, then stir to mix well. Marinate the chicken for 6 hours in the fridge, or best overnight. When ready, thread 3-4 pieces of the chicken meat onto the bamboo skewers.
Step 5
  • Grill the chicken satay skewers for 2-3 minutes on each side until the meat is fully cooked and the surface is nicely charred, on both sides. Baste and brush with some oil while grilling. Heat up the ready-to-cook peanut satay sauce according to package instructions.
Step 6
  • Serve alongside the cucumber and red onions.
