Cooking Notes

The recipe is easily doubled.

Or use peeled and grated fresh ginger (1 tablespoon).

Soak bamboo skewers 10 to 20 minutes in water to keep from scorching on grill.

Grilled Chicken Satay

2-inch bamboo skewers*
1/4 cup Asian sesame oil
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons chopped onion
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon bottled fresh ginger*
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic*
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, optional
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins*

  1.  Place skewers in water to soak. Place all remaining ingredients except chicken in a food processor or blender. Pulse until onion is chopped fine and ingredients are well blended.
  2. Thread chicken on skewers, and place in a shallow oblong dish (no more than 2 deep) and pour marinade over. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours.
  3. Turn on a gas grill to high. Drain and discard marinade. Grill uncovered until beginning to brown and cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes, turning frequently. Serve immediately with Thai-style Peanut Sauce, if desired.
