Satay Recipe

Chicken satay is a grilled chicken skewers marinated with spices and served with peanut sauce. Chicken satay, the mere mention of the two words conjures up a mental picture of perfectly grilled and nicely charred chicken marinated with exotic spices and served with the addictive peanut sauce with a side of cucumber. Chicken satay is one of the most popular Asian appetizers and they are loved by many people. There are many variations of chicken satay recipes from Asia, but let me tell you that the best satay comes from Malaysia, my home country. Ask any foodies and chefs who have been to the entire Southeast Asia region and they will agree with me. While Thai chicken sate is delicious, they can’t be compared to the deep and rich flavors of Malaysian chicken satay.
