    I wish I had paid attention to the other reviews and marinated the chicken longer. It didn't really have any flavor. The peanut sauce was very good, though, and really saved the day. I served the chicken with a cucumber salad and rice noodles.

    Excellent dish. The peanut sauce, in particular, is amazing! I would definitely make this again. It's an easy meal to put together on a week night. Great served with saffron rice tossed with peas.

    LOVED this recipe. I used regular peanut butter in the sauce and should have omitted the soy sauce because it turned out too salty, but otherwise, will make again and again. The chicken was delicious on its own also.

    I have made this recipe many times for my husband and I. Last night I made it for an Inauguration Party gathering of 36. It was a huge hit and reminded me how wonderful the flavors are.

    This recipe is fantastic. Very easy to make and delicious. Instead of on skewers, I cook chicken tenders on the grill. I also usefresh ginger, several garlic cloves and regular natural peanut butter (not reduced fat). I marinate the chicken longer than 10 minutes (typically prepare in the morning for an evening meal, although I've also let marinate overnight). It always turns out fabulous! The peanut sauce is also incredible. A dish to impress for company, but also easy enough for a quick weeknight dinner.

    We enjoyed it and will make again. I used 4 chicken breasts and just cut each into two pieces lenghtwise. I did not have low sodium soy, so I just used regular which made it a little salty. I don't a have grill, so I just broil (500F) the chicken by placing them on a bake tray at top rack for 15 mins. The chicken was very tender. The sauce was too thick, so I just added some warm water. If you don't have time, just use a tsp of Sambal garlic/chili paste instead of crushed pepper, garlic cloves and lime rind.

    This was very good. I used chicken tenders instead of half breasts which made this even easier. I think next time I will marinate the chicken longer as some other reviewers have suggested; but still excellent. I served this with sliced cucumbers and red onions in rice vinegar mixed with a bit of sugar. I will definitely make this again.

    Agree that marinating this longer really improves the flavor. I also added the juice from the lime to the marinade. I also thinned the peanut sauce with some water to make it more creamy.

    This recipe was so good, that my 4 year old daughter actually ate it. She is a very picky eater, and she ate every bite. The peanut butter dip is perfect. I will make it again and again.

    One of my weeknight go-to staples because it's SO easy and fast. Marinating the chicken longer is good though it's always seemed flavorful enough to me without marinating it longer than written. The peanut sauce is SO good and SO simple - I've been known to make it for a lot of dishes! I serve this with brown rice and steamed or sauted vegetables (usually broccoli).

    We make this a lot. It is extremely flavorful, and I like this sate recipe because it doesn't call for any unusual ingredients as some others do. We always broil the chicken and it comes out moist and it is a very quick meal. Perfect when you have guests.

    I made this for my own 2 kids, and 3 neighbor kids (who were at our house for dinner), and they gobbled every last bite. The chicken was delicious!!!!!!!! The neighbor kids (ages 3, 6 and 8) went home, raved about the chicken and asked their Mom to call me for the recipe!

    We really like this sate and I am glad that I read the reviews first. I marinated the chicken for about 5 hours and the flavor was great. I grilled the chicken on the gas grill and should have remembered to soak the skewers first but even though they charred they didn't catch fire. I cut back a bit on the soy sauce in the dipping sauce to cut back on the sodium and added a bit of siracha sauce to kick up the heat. Served with sauteed spinach, basmatti rice and a cucumber salad. Poured a nice semi-dry Riesling. This will be be on the menu often.

    This is just for the sauce, which was delicious! I was looking for an easy recipe with natural ingredients. This is definitely a keeper!

    so easy, so tasty! cannot rave enough about it!!! I made a couple alterations due to personal preference. I used about 1 1/2 inches of fresh ginder root instead of ground, and added the juice of 1 lime into the marinate. Marinated about 20 min or so. I cooked it on a broiler since I live in an apt with no grill.

    I had three thighs and one breast in my freezer. I skinned them and cut into one inch pieces. I put them on wooden skewers like kabobs.Then I marinated them for a few hours. I grilled them outside. The sauce was just wonderful. It got rave reviews. Another great recipe

    Super quick and easy. Great sauce and meat combo. I also marinated for a couple hours and taste was phenomenal. My boyfriend loves peanut butter and asks for this all the time. I think it's the sauce that really makes it outstanding.

    Really easy to make. I added steamed rice and bok choy for a nice week night meal.

    May I suggest adding honey, lemon grass, fish sauce, rice wine vinegar to the marinade and peanut sauce, garnish with cilantro and fine chives. Also substitute the red pepper flakes for Hunan chile sauce and sesame oil. But a lovely recipe.

    This chicken was absolutely amazing! The marinade was really the best part and I would definitely just make the chicken in the marinade again routinely. We don't have a grill so I pan seared the chicken in some peanut oil and it turned out juicy, slightly charred and delicious. Go easy on the garlic in the sauce, it definitely comes through and is a little too potent. Also recommend a little more lime juice in the sauce and to heat it up on the stovetop to mix all the flavors together into a nice, warm sauce. Absolutely delish and a keeper!!

    Made as directed except doubled the sauce, thanks to other reviewers. Really excellent with lovely flavours and even picky husband cleaned his plate and looking for leftovers for work tomorrow! Would serve to company with no hesitation.

    I think this is my favorite Cooking Light recipe EVER. I have been making this recipe for years and never get sick of it. It is frequently requested by my friends - even my Indian friends. It is great to have a healthier chicken sate recipe!

    I have been making this dish for years and we still love it. I usually serve it with steamed broccoli. I also marinate the chicken for a few hours and I double the sauce. There never seems to be enough...
