Easy Chicken Satay Marinade Recipe?

laylag | Jul 16, 2009 12:24 PM

My daughter loves food on a stick and chicken satay is a new favorite. I've tried making this at home but not getting it quite right. I much prefer to use chicken breast, not thighs, so the meat really must stay moist and juicy when grilled.

I've looked at a bunch of recipes and am perplexed - some with lemongrass, some without, with fish sauce and without, coriander or not, etc. Does anyone have a fairly simple, go to delicious chicken satay marinade recipe that doesn't require a ton of work?

Also, advice on a great peanut sauce recipe or a trusted brand to purchase would be fantastic too. Am using Trader Joe's currently but it's not hitting the spot.
