Betty demonstrates how to make Chicken Satay. The Chicken Satay is planned to go with the Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce that was uploaded recently. This is my version of the lunch I ordered at Shakespeare and Company in Lexington, Kentucky, last week.


Uncooked chicken tenderloin 1 Pound , thawed, rinse, and pat dry
Soy sauce 3 Tablespoon
Roasted red chili paste 1 Tablespoon
Ground ginger 1/4 Teaspoon
Ground cumin 1/4 Teaspoon
Cooking oil spray 1 Tablespoon ((as required))
For garnish
Orange 1/2
Lime 1/4



1. Remove excess fat from chicken tenderloins, and cut them into 1-inch cubes. Place it in a medium sized bowl, and set aside.

2. In another bowl, add soy sauce, roasted red chilli paste, ginger, and cumin. Mix well.

3. Pour the mixture over chicken. Mix to coat well.

4. Cover the bowl with plastic, and pop it in refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours.

5. After the chicken cubes are marinated, divide them equally and thread them into 6 skewers.

6. Preheat electric kitchen grill to medium.


7. Spray oil on grills, and place chicken skewers on it. Cover it with lid and cook for about 10 minutes or until done.

8. Remove from grill and place skewers on serving platter.


9. Garnish it with orange and lime, serve chicken satay with peanut dipping sauce and hoisin sauce.


You can use metal or bamboo skewer. If you are using bamboo skewer then you need to soak it in water for at least 30 minutes before threading chicken to prevent it from catching fire.

If you are using an outdoor grill then it takes 5 minutes per side for chicken to cook.

You can serve chicken on the stick or remove it from skewer.
