Chicken Satay Sauce

erwinm, May 13, 5:53am
Does anyone have any good recipes for chicken satay! Preferably like they have at Thai restaurants :) I've tried before with peanut butter but it's always very gluggy.
Thanks in advance :)

I like this recipe, it has peanut butter in but I dont find it a problem. I have also made it with fresh peanuts crushed to virtually a paste, it is sooooo time consuming and I didn't find it any better than peanut butter.

500g chicken meat
For the satay marinade:
6 cloves of garlic
3 stalks of lemongrass
10 shallots
100g galangal
50g ginger
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
6 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp soya sauce
1 tbsp soya oil
Salt and pepper to season

1 Blend the garlic, lemongrass, shallots, galangal and ginger into a paste and set aside. Combine the remaining ingredients then mix with the paste.
2 Take chicken meat (leg or thigh) and cut into 2cm pieces. Mix with the marinade and leave for a few hours, or overnight for the best results.
3 Thread the meat on to bamboo skewers and cook over grill or on the barbecue until cooked through. Garnish satay skewers with peanut sauce (below) for dipping.

For satay peanut sauce:
3 peeled onions
3 candlenuts
2 stalks of lemon grass
6 cloves of garlic
200g ginger
200g pineapple, blended into a smooth paste
120ml oil for cooking
5 tbsp chilli paste

sounds yummy, but what is grated palm sugar please!

davidt4, May 13, 6:12am
Palm sugar is made from the sap of sugar palms.It usually comes in flat pale pink discs and can be grated or crushed or chopped.You can buy it at any Chinese food market.If you can't find any use white sugar, but it's worth searching out as it has a lovely flavour.
