  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 20 wooden skewers, soaked in water 30 minutes
  • Vegetable oil, for grilling
  • Butter lettuce leaves
  • Fresh cilantro leaves

  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts, for garnish
Directions
Watch how to make this recipe Marinade:

Combine the yogurt, ginger, garlic, and curry powder in a shallow mixing bowl, stir to combine. Place the chicken strips in the yogurt marinade and gently toss until well coated. Cover and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at up to 2 hours.

Thread the chicken pieces onto the soaked skewers working the skewer in and out of the meat, down the middle of the piece, so that it stays in place during grilling. Place a grill pan over medium heat and brush it with oil to prevent the meat from sticking. Grill the chicken satays for 3 to 5 minutes on each side, until nicely seared and cooked through. Serve the satays on a platter lined with lettuce leaves and cilantro; accompanied by a small bowl of peanut sauce on the side.

Peanut Sauce:

Combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, red chili paste, brown sugar, and lime juice in a food processor or blender. Puree to combine. While the motor is running, drizzle in the hot water to thin out the sauce, you may not need all of it. Pour the sauce into a nice serving bowl and garnish with the chopped peanuts. Serve with chicken satay.

I make this recipe every New Year's Eve. Everyone loves it and the next day, I make a yummy noodle salad with the sauce that's left over. This year, the noodle salad is making an appearance on NYE! :D No, really...that sauce is that good! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I only made the peanut sauce because I already made chicken using a recipe similar to Tyler's. So, I can't comment on the chicken. But, the peanut sauce was delicious! I could eat it with a spoon. I used leftover sauce to make peanut noodles and it was awesome. I can't say whether this is "authentic" or not, but it sure is tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This peanut sauce didn't do it for me at all- it is so far from teh real deal, as you would have in Asia. Too sweet, needs the Tamarind, ginger, and lemongrass. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious - I use this recipe to make soba noodles with peanut sauce. It works either hot, or cold, and it is very versatile, as you can add whatever protein pleases you or your guests. I usually add in shredded carrots and scallions. Today, I will also be adding in some shredded pea pods. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Ok, so I only made the peanut sauce because I already made the chicken and it was soooo yummy! It was a hit with all- such nice flavors- not too rich, had some tang and spice. My husband commented "it has such complex flavors." It's a go-to sauce for me now! item not reviewed by moderator and published

this is a go-to recipe in my house. my son loves indian and asian foods so this is right up his alley. i make it with tofu or chicken, in the oven or on the grill. i make extra peanut sauce and freeze leftovers for future dinners. the recipe is easy and delish, you cant go wrong! item not reviewed by moderator and published
easy tasty. needed to adjust spice levels in marinade. more curry item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought the chicken was really tasty. The peanut sauce was very thick and I made a few tweeks as other reviewers suggested - added a splash of tamari, some rice wine vinegar, and coconut oil. It went well with the chicken. Overall I would make the chicken again but would look for a different satay sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't make the chicken - but, needed a satay sauce to compliment another meal. The basic recipe is sound and great. I used cashew butter instead of PB, didn't have lime (used lemon, used a bit of sesame oil. My husband said it was one of the best satay sauces he's had (and, he loves Thai food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this dish was amazing. I agree with "thetoddclan" that it turned out better than at a restaurant. I too changed it up just a bit. I also added a squeeze of chili sauce and used greek yogurt. To the marinade I added the garlic, fresh ginger,curry powder, then added a squeeze of bottled ginger juice. I also put all the peanut sauce ingredients into a small sauce pan and whisked it till it simmered instead of using a blender and having a bigger mess to clean up. Worked fine. I will definetley make this again. Especially for a small party group such as a bridal shower, baby shower or friends over. Nice presentation. It was delicious! I would also buy an extra package of bibb lettuce next time. I had left over chicken and used just under 1.5 pounds of chicken, but ran out of the lettuce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing! Super easy to follow and so tasty. I added extra chili saice to the peanut sauce, and I used greek yogurt. Turned out better than the restaurant we get it from!! The chicken was VERY juicy and moist!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken seemed to be a little dry and plain-tasting, but we did enjoy it. I agree that the peanut sauce tasted like not much more than PB itself, so next time, I will add some extra ingredients as suggested below. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this the 1st time and it was so easy and turned out great, that I made it a few days later to take to a party and got rave reviews. However, I doubled the amount of ginger and garlic, added more curry powder, and really tweaked the peanut sauce. If you make the peanut sauce according to the recipe, it pretty much tastes like peanut butter. I was embarrassed at the thought of serving that, so I scrambled to fix it. I would add a little coconut milk or cream. I also added a little tamarind, approx. 3 T. of Vietnamese fish sauce, more lime juice, soy sauce, Siracha chili sauce, and cilantro. Much better. I would just use way less peanut butter in the future, but I already followed the original recipe so I had to add the extra lime juice, etc. Use low sodium soy sauce as the recipe calls for. I only had regular, and it was a little salty. Even before I added the stuff to fix the peanut sauce, it was way too much peanut sauce in proportion to the rest of the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
thought the peanut sauce was REALLY good ! the chicken was bit bland, but next time will try the coconut milk as suggested below. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The entire family loved this, best of all it was so quick and easy! I didn't have yogurt, so I substituded with sour cream...it was great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe - both the marinated chicken and sauce - is a winner! I made it tonight for my husband, children, and parents and we all loved it. The sauce had just the right amount of heat. I'll definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Liked the chicken, however, not a major fan of the peanut sauce. Disappointed and I love Tyler's recipes. I followed the recipe to a tea, only one modification 1/8 cup of soy sauce. Because I didn't care for the taste, then followed the suggestion of one reviews where they added coconut milk and cilantro, which made it better. The peanut sauce was still NOT like how the restaurants make it. Guess I am still on the hunt for a tasty peanut dipping sauce...sorry Tyler. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loves this meal. I'm with georgesco. I serve it with a cucumber relish from Steven Raichlen's How to Grill cookbook. My challenge is to not "sample" all the peanut sauce before I serve the dish. Hmmm, wonder what it would be like served over vanilla ice cream? item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is one of the most authentic Thai satay recipe that I found. The rest are other chefs inventions. Easy to prepare and simple. I wish there was also a note for cucumber relish which is how this dish is served. I improvised with a chopped cucumber, chopped onion, cilantro and diluted Thai sweet chili sauce. All came out great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an simple to make dish very tasty, welcome any time of the year. Love it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used this recipe just for the peanut sauce, but made many modifications since I didn't have everything it required. I tossed the sauce in with a mixture of angel hair and penne pasta, bean sprouts, shrimp, and bok choy to make a thai-inspired pasta dinner. Instead of 1/4 c low sodium soy sauce, I used 1/8 c. Instead of the chili paste, I used about 5 dashes of chili powder and 2 tbsp of a hot sauce I got from my trip to Costa Rica (but I would guess any hot sauce would do the trick) Instead of lime juice, I used the equivalent of 1 medium lemon's worth of lemon juice. I mixed everything by hand with a whisk instead of using a food processor or blender and had no trouble. My dad asked me to write down my modified recipe, so I guess it was a hit! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow. I have not eaten the chicken yet-I think it will be good; the way it smells from marinating I could eat it now! However, the sauce needed severe modifications. I added everything as the recipe directed and the soy sauce and the peanut butter both had an overwhelming flavor-that didn't taste good combined. I added a few sprinkles of Red pepper flakes, a little bit of sesame oil, but what made the most difference is when I added 13 oz of coconut milk. This helped to settle down the strong taste of soy sauce and help to thin out the think pb consistency. I would not use this peanut satay recipe again however thankfully to the modifications, it turned out alright. Hopefully my guests will enjoy it! :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken was bland and the peanut sauce was awful. We couldn't bear to eat the leftovers, on top of that it was murder getting the gross peanut sauce off our dishes! item not reviewed by moderator and published
So the marinade was good. Added turmeric like the other's suggested, but the dipping sauce was a catastrophe. Don't use this recipe for the dipping sauce; its just "nasty peanut butter" no matter how fancy a brand you use. Instead, try this one from Better Homes and Gardens: ingredients 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1/4 cup rice vinegar 1/4 cup soy sauce 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk 2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (2) Chopped peanuts (optional) directions 1. In a bowl stir together peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, coconut milk, garlic, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper. Stir in green onion. 2. To use, brush meat or poultry with sauce during the last 5 minutes of grilling. Heat remaining sauce until bubbly, stirring occasionally, and pass warmed sauce with meat or poultry. If desired, garnish sauce with a few chopped peanuts. Makes about 1 cup. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was not great as written. The peanut dipping sauce was good only after I made some significant modifications...one lime instead of two, plus I added coconut milk instead of the water to give it some depth. I used a really good quality natural peanut butter which gave the sauce a better flavor and consistency. Without these changes the sauce was bland and tasted like runny lime peanut butter. With the changes it was quite good. We found the marinade for the chicken made it too soft and soggy, and gave it a bitter aftertaste - NOT good at all. Weber has an outstanding marinade for chicken satay that goes great with the peanut dipping sauce. Take the time to check it out - very tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had as an appetizer-BBQed. For my tastebuds I need more heat...red pepper flakes or a serrano...next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The results were very disappointing. I first had to adjust the peanut sauce recipe. I had to reduce to one lime, add more water than 1/2 cup and about a tablespoon more of soy sauce. The chicken was very plain, so when making the marinade, I recommend salt and pepper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is to die for!! Typical of what I would expect from Tyler - over the top! I made sobe noodles with some scalions and pea pods(sp?) and drizzled the peanut sauce over it and topped it with a couple of skewers and some crushed peanuts....yes, that is not in the recipe, but just an extra touch to make it a meal! Of course everyone has different tastes and things they like to stand out in a recipe for the "top" flavor. I disagree with some of the reviews - the peanut butter in a recipe is regular peanut butter unless it states "unsweetened". In this case you use regular creamy peanut butter. Chili paste and Curry paste can be used interchangeably with similar heat. I always make a recipe according to the recipe directions exactly and then make notes for the next time I make it what I would like to try next for "my taste". Just so happens this recipe is good as it is!! Thanks Tyler for another great recipe! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great marinade and recipe for the chicken - I add 2 teaspoons turmeric and more garlic. The problem with the peanut sauce is its failure to specify what type of peanut butter to use: sugary Jiff type stuff, or your less sweet Adam's variety. Easy fix: if using sweet peanut butter, omit the sugar; if using unsweetened, add the sugar. As for the lime, the recipe just has it wrong. Use maybe 1 or 2 teaspoons - any more and the sauce will taste nasty. I also recommend substituting coconut milk for water. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The marinade and chicken were all things I had on hand at my house, so it was really easy to do at the last minute. I added extra tumeric and cumin to the marinade, and the chicken was tasty on its own. There was WAY too much peanut sauce and it was kinda blah. I would definitely look for a more interesting and realistic peanut sauce, but make the chicken the same. It seemed way fancier than the effort I put forth. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I could not find a good peanut sauce, and with some changes this one is great. I used one less lime than reccommended and added a dash of fresh chopped ginger and used a pinch of chipolte chili powder instead of the hot sauce. Very simple to make and everyone loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Didn't like this one. I had it without the sauce so maybe it would be better with it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made the chicken Satay as an appetizer for NYE Party. Everything was gone in a matter of minutes. The marinade gave a nice taste to the chicken. As for the sauce, I could not find the red chile paste so I substituted chile powder. It gave the sauce a nice kick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was easy, and looked like I worked my fingers off! My family absolutely loved it. I did add about a cup of coconut milk and some additional soy sauce to the peanut sauce. Instead of grilling on the regular grill, I pulled out my indoor grill and it worked perfect. Great appetizer or main dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this was a GREAT solid recipe. I changed the sauce by adding a 4 oz can of unsweetened coconut milk and a few sprigs of cilantro. My kids loved it so much that they wanted to drink it. With all of the left over sauce, I am going to add it to pasta and broccoli for a sesame cold noodle dinner tonight. Thanks Tyler for a good recipe foundation! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was a pretty simple recipe, but the peanut sauce wasn't great, and I didn't find the satay had enough taste. It was perfectly edible though. It's just not something I'll repeat. I've had more luck with other skewer recipes, but this is the first satay recipe I've tried. item not reviewed by moderator and published
When a group of my friends had a GNO this summer to the classic movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's" at The Fox theatre in ATL, we went next door for some pre-show apps, and ordered Chicken Satay. I had never prepared it at home, so of course, I went to foodnetwork.com. This recipe was spot on for what we had that night. I cheated on the sauce, cut the peanut butter in half, and just used chili powder instead of paste. It was still yummy! I taught the kids how to handle the skewers: dip-slide-dip-slide-dip . . . They loved it! I made sides of easy saffron rice and a broccoli slaw with ginger dressing, peanuts, cilantro, and green onions. Yummy. Thanks, Tyler! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My dinner guests loved this so much they were putting the peanut sauce on everything. I served it with Emeril Lagasse's indonesian jasimine rice which was perfect! My dinner guest from Rwanda contributed cassava to the meal and that was the icing on the cake. Everyone raved. I would also consider blanched green beans tossed in sesame oil as a side. You definitely have to use real unsweetened peanut butter, not that hydrogenated crap and real soy sauce, not kikkomon. I made the chicken again for a reception for business clients, along with about 10 other savory choices and the chicken was once again, a bit hit. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was the worst waste of Peanut Butter I have ever seen. Just a horrible taste of acidic lime juice and Peanut Butter. The sauce totally overpowered the Chicken, which by itself was under seasoned. This was Tyler's Ultimate, alright, Ultimate Failure! (I normally like almost everything Tyler does). item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had a hard time with this one. I've had chicken satay with peanut sauce before, and was really looking forward to making it at home. But, the marinade seemed to make the chicken really soft even though I didn't exceed the 2 hour time limit. Also, it makes a major mess of your BBQ. I agree with the reviewers who disliked the sauce: it tasted just like thin peanut butter. Wouldn't do this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a great marinade for the chicken. I've read some of the reviews for the peanut sauce, so I thought I could lend some advice. I've attempted to make the peanut sauce in the past with failure. My mother is an immigrant from Indonesia and I've learned its in the type of peanut butter you buy. Cheap brands such as Skippy, Peter Pan, Jiff will not work as well as some of organic types or those in which the oil is separated. Sambal Badjak is a flavorful, medium heat, chili paste I use in with the peanut sauce as well as minced garlic and shalots. One of my favorite dishes my mother would prepare would included the chicken satay with the peanut sauce, white rice and cold veggies, such as cucumbers, green beans, and bean sprouts. As a kid, I would drizzle the peanut sauce over the veggies and rice and I'd be in heaven. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This peanut sauce wasn't good. It had too strong of a peanut butter taste, without any other interesting flavors to balance it out. Also, why do you need 3 cups of sauce to go with 1 1/2 pounds of chicken? Quit a waste of peanut butter. I would not make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I didn't care for this. The chicken was ok, but the peanut sauce was horrible. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I think this is the first Tyler Florence that I haven't loved -- his Chicken Parmigiana is the only I make at this point. However, this dish just doesn't pan out. The yogurt and curry marinade is fine, provided you have a good curry powder, and it gives a very nice texture to the meat when grilled, especially if you marinade overnight. However, the peanut butter sauce is pretty disappointing. The flavor lacks depth entirely, and it just doesn't mesh very well with the chicken. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is definitely one of my all time favorites recipes. It's great as a dinner entre or an appetizer at a cocktail party. I usually just use the peanut sauce from the grocery store because it really can't be beaten. For the marinade I also add soy sauce, sesame oil, and have used chili powder instead of the curry powder in a bind. The flavor packs a punch but is SOOOO great!!! The longer the marinade time the better, I try to do it overnight. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made this for the 2008 Ohio State vs. Michigan Game, and there wasn't any left when the game was over.

I tried to put these on a bbq grill because it was too hot to fire up the stove top grill, but I really think you need the oil from the grilltop to get the chicken done right. It will be ok but I think the grill top is a better method. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The chicken was bland, yet overwhelmed with ginger. The satay sauce was way too thick, way too peanut-buttery, and totally unbalanced flavor wise. All I really tasted was gloppy pb and acid from the lime juice. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe last night and it was absolutely delicious! The chicken marinade was perfect with a slight curry flavor and very tender. I did not make the peanut sauce...I just bought some in the store to save me some time. I would highly recommend this recipe if you like curry or Thai food. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not too big on Thai food so this was a stretch for me. Most complain about the sauce tasting too much like peanut butter but for a beginner...it was great! I marinated whole chicken breasts and grilled those as I prepared this as a meal for two. The marinade was fine but I think I would have preferred more curry flavor. The yogurt helped keep the chicken moist on the grill which is helpful but does not add any flavor. Served over coconut flavored rice which as nice as all the flavors complimented each other well. I will definitely try this again...maybe more chili paste and grated ginger in the sauce like others recommend. Otherwise, this is a great recipe for beginners. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I only made the satay sauce, and I ended up adding some coconut milk trying to reduce the over-riding lime juice flavour. Next time I'll reduce the limes to one only and add 1/3 cup coconut milk or cream instead and maybe add more chilli too. Very easy to make out of the pantry though. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I picked this dish because of the ease of the peanut sauce. I didn't need to go out and get sesame oil, fish oil, etc....things I would never use again. I didn't use the yogurt marinade, I just salt and peppered the chicken and used olive oil and grilled them outside. They came out fine. The peanut sauce on the other hand, well, it wasn't bad, but not the best I have had. I swapped in hot chinese chili oil for the sambai and added some cilantro. It was pretty ok, with a nice kick of spice at the end of tasting it. BUT, I couldn't taste the "peanut" so much. I tasted lime juice and heat (from the oil). It tasted good with the chicken that day, but I had a ton of the sauce left over. I reheated it on the stove, grilled up a couple chicken breasts to use up the sauce, and it was NOT as good as the first night. The thai restaurant around the corner from me has much better peanut sauce. I am trying to beg them for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was a huge hit with a large crowd. tripled the recipe and was not only easy to make but came out better than expected. put one piece of chicken per skewer so they were easy to dip. Def a try for any type of party. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The curried chicken was easy, although I prefer recipes that don't require advance preparation (overnight marinating). Chicken was good with otherwise minimal effort. The peanut sauce was good also, but I didn't like the chicken with the sauce. To me the chicken was fine by itself with rice and the sauce was delicious over noodles and plain chicken. Would make again, but not for the same meal. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe misses the mark when Tyler attemps to substitute ingredients for ones that are now readily available at most major supermarkets. The usage of yogurt is a bastardization to the dish and an insult to the simplicity of Thai cooking. While the substitute for coconut milk may be an attempt to cut back on the calories, nothing will be able to truly recreate the taste that is achieved when using proper ingredients. The dish fails in other ways, but I am mainly upset that this excellent chef attempts to "save time and calories" by using an inferior substitute thus changing the overall flavor of the dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love Tyler, watch all his shows, and have made several of his recipes. This one isn't the best. The peanut sauce, even after I more than doubled the chili paste and added more Soy Sauce, still tasted only like peanut butter. The chicken was pretty good, I couldn't really taste the curry that much and there was no spice whatsoever in them. When I make the 2nd time I'll definately modify like others have done. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't know how to pronounce it, but this was really good! I only marinated for 1 hour and didn't use ginger because I don't care for the taste.

I went out on a limb and tried this recipe as the dish I brought to a friends "Tiki Theme" party. I had a few of them hot off the grill, and they were quite tasty. I let the chicken marinate a little longer than two hours, it was very good. I used the sambal "to taste", as I like my peanut sauce pretty warm. I served the skewers stuck into a pineapple, sliced in half lengthwise, and the peanut sauce was served in a halved gourd for an attractive presentation. They went fast! item not reviewed by moderator and published

The only thing I made from this recipe was the Peanut Sauce, and I was very disappointed. It tasted like peanut butter and nothing else.

Finally I took 50% of this sauce and 50% of a store bought Sesame Miso sauce and it was great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have to disagree with other reviewers on this one. The chicken by itself (with the yogurt marinade) is very bland and is only good if served with the peanut sauce. I was horrified when some of my guests were eating the chicken plain! Next time I will drizzle the satays with the sauce before serving and then serve more on the side for extra dipping. They really are awful on their own. The peanut sauce itself, while pretty good, could use work too. I added grated ginger, cilantro, chile oil, etc to give it more kick. Though the chicken itself was not too great, dipped into my reworked peanut sauce it was fabulous! item not reviewed by moderator and published

The chicken however could use a little more in the marinade- i added chopped green chilis, a little tumeric powder and some garam masala to it. Turned out great with these additions. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made these for a party and they were a hit! I used chicken tenders instead of sliced chicken breast and it worked out great. The peanut sauce was good too, but I've had better. For the sauce, I used chili sauce instead of chili paste. I will definitely make this recipe again. It was pretty easy and really delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
