Tandoori Chicken Saté

Oxmoor House
A saté (or satay) is a popular Indonesian dish of small marinated cubes of meat or poultry threaded on skewers and grilled or broiled. Satés are usually served with a spicy, sweet peanut sauce, but in this tandoori version, the chicken is marinated in a spiced yogurt mixture.

2. Preheat broiler.
