Singapore Chicken Satay
May be prepared with chicken, beef sirloin or top round, or lamb shoulder. A spicy, mildly sweet peanut sauce is the flavorful secret to successful satay.
- 1 Tablespoon curry powder
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 2 pounds skinless boneless chicken
breasts, cut in 3/4-inch cubes
- Peanut Dipping Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together curry powder, sugar, oil, soy sauce and garlic.
Cut chicken into 3/4-inch cubes and place in plastic bag. Pour in marinade; seal bag. Regrigerate; turning occasionally, for 2 hours. Wet bamboo skewers with water. Thread chicken on skewers; broil until lightly browned and tender.
OR using chicken tenders (NOT cut into cubes); cook on your Foreman Grill for about 6 minutes. (Note: An easy way to clean up the mess on the older Foreman Grill is to wet a couple of paper towels and place them on the grills; heat for 2 minutes; throw away the hot paper towels and just wipe off the grills.)
Dip pieces of chicken in Peanut Dipping Sauce (below). Serve with rice, marinated cucumbers, banana riata(yogurt), and pita bread.
