Satay Chicken

I decided to make my first satay at home.I been looking at satay recipe in one of my cookbook for sometimes~"Authentic Recipes from the Manhattan of the East".Of course, I make some alternation in the recipe,I like my satay with strong flavor and spicy.As usual,I shop at my regular supermarket and I saw boneless chicken thigh was on sale last week.!!I bought a family pack about 3 lbs.Here is goes...

The look is so deceiving but it's really good!!..Not bad for first timer!! hehehe!!

You can still see some coconut milk at the bottom
Look at Mishu struggling with her skewer. As it said on her shirt"It's not easy being ME!!"hahaha!!.
It's quite spicy but she still eat it.
OK...time for water!!!..have to go...Mishu just eat one skewer ..
I bought a ready made Thais satay sauce.
Hot from oven ....sorry to cold to BBQ outdoor!!
I found this bottle of Thais satay sauce in Biglots...not bad for $1.50...but too dry.....need to add some peanut butter and coconut milk

2 lbs boneless chicken thigh
1 stalk lemongrass
5 red long pepper
8 shallots
5 cloves garlic
1 inch ginger
2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
50 ml coconut milk for basting

Cut boneless chicken thigh in cube,set aside.Blend or pound above ingredients and mixed well with cube chicken for overnight or 3 hours.Soak satay skewers in cold water overnight or few hours to prevent them from burning during grilling.
Thread the chicken thigh pieces onto bamboo skewers.Set oven preheat at 375 F.Placed skewers onto aluminium tray and broil each side for 15-20 minutes.Then brush with coconut milk each side.Serve warm with peanut sauce.

Note:I use oven to grill because I can't use open fire outdoor grill now ..Too cold ..I placed the meat at oven top rack to get better fire..I eat with white rice which I found very appetizing,maybe because I add in red long pepper,sort of sambal flavour..You can use any meat like pork or beef.

Yum yum. I don't know of a kid who doesn't like satay. When something is yummy, never mind that it is spicy, they will still eat it. But need loads of water on the side. Haha. Last night mine had curry and bread at her friend's but didn't complain of spiciness or asked for water. Wow!
