Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

Another great recipe from Jaime at Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats. I love her blog and all the wonderful recipes she has posted, not to mention that her pictures always make everything look so yummy! Here's a link to the recipe on Jaime's blog, but I have also included it below. It's a must try, the flavors are great and it saved me a trip to P.F. Chang's.

Chicken Satay (from Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats, original recipe from Allrecipes.com)

2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon or lime juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons curry powder
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed

In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, curry powder, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Place the chicken breasts in the marinade and refrigerate. Let the chicken marinate at least 2 hours, overnight is best.Preheat a grill to high heat. Weave the chicken onto skewers, then grill for 5 minutes per side.

Jaime mentioned on her blog that she used the George Foreman Grill to cook the chicken. I decided to use my panini maker and it worked out great.

Peanut Sauce (from Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats, original recipe from Tyler Florence)

1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 green onion, thinly sliced on the diagonal (I omitted this)
1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, minced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon red chili paste
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1-1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1-1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons hot water

In a small saucepan, heat the peanut oil over medium-low flame. Add the green onions, ginger, garlic, and chili paste. Cook and stir for a minute until soft and fragrant. Mix in the brown sugar, peanut butter, vinegar, soy sauce, and hot water. Stir until the sugar is dissolved and the peanut butter has smoothed out.

I forgot to take a pic of the peanut sauce, so you'll just have to visit Good Eats 'n Sweet Treats to see how delicious it looks.
