Spicy Chicken Satays with Herbs and Vegetables

Getting reviews...
A southeast Asian favorite, satays consist of small cubes of meat that are marinated, threaded on skewers and grilled. Here, nuoc cham, a Vietnamese sauce that combines nuoc mam (fish sauce) with other seasonings, is used as both a marinade and dipping sauce for the chicken. Add in lettuce wraps, fresh herbs and veggies for a meal that’s savory, tangy, smoky, spicy and just a little bit sweet.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Whisk the water, lime juice, sugar, and fish sauce in a small bowl until the sugar dissolves. Stir in the sambal oelek and garlic.
  2. Cut the chicken thighs into 2-inch cubes. Toss cubes in a medium bowl with about 1/4 cup of the sauce and 1 teaspoon vegetable oil. Set aside for 15 minutes. Stir a heaping tablespoon of grated carrot into reserved sauce. Set aside.
  3. Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Thread 2 to 3 pieces of chicken on each skewer and lay skewers on a baking sheet or large plate. Season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, grill the satays, without moving them, until browned on the first side, about 3 minutes. Turn the satays and grill until the second side is browned and the meat is opaque at the edges, about 3 minutes more. Transfer to a large clean platter.
  4. Arrange the lettuce, mint, cilantro, cucumber, scallions, and the rest of the carrot on the platter with the satays. To serve, slip the chicken from a skewer and wrap each piece in a lettuce leaf with some of the herbs and vegetables and dip in the sauce
