Satay is an Indonesian version of kabobs: thinly sliced marinated meat grilled on a skewer and served with peanut sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, and flatten to 1/4-inch thickness using a rolling pin or flat side of a meat mallet. Cut chicken into 16 to 20 (1-inch) strips.

Step 2

Combine soy sauce and next 4 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag; add chicken, turning to coat. Seal and chill 45 minutes, turning once.

Step 3

Meanwhile, soak skewers in water 30 minutes; drain.

Step 4

Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Thread 1 bacon piece and 1 chicken strip onto each skewer.

Step 5

Grill skewers, covered with grill lid, 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until chicken is done. Serve skewers with Peanut Sauce.

This is a fantastic recipe. I brought it to a party and should have made more batches. I made 6 batches and it wasn't enough. The other reviews either did not make the recipe or did not follow instructions. This is a keeper and deserves 10 stars.

Solid recipe. I slightly undercooked the bacon and cooked the skewers in the oven (400 for about 20 minutes) and the bacon was not charred. Made for the superbowl and received many compliments.

Giving this 3 stars because I just read this recipe. I'm VERY interested in making this but have a question about using fully cooked bacon and then cooking it again 4-5 minutes on the grill. I believe this would char the bacon and ruin the Satay therfore ruining my appetizer.
