Chicken Satay

Chicken Satay

Decade ago,when i was new here, living in an apartment, working long hours(I do not miss Friday release and  intense project deadlines by the way),we didn’t explore as much as we would have liked to food wise.One day, my friend, Sabitha, came home and raved about the chicken satay with spicy peanut sauce she had for dinner at one of the Thai restaurant.She bragged about this place and this dish couple of times, so it was time for us to check this out.So one night we all headed for dinner..And there..i tasted ‘Chicken Satay with peanut sauce’  for the first time..and was she right or what !It was to die for..i don’t remember what else i ordered there but i remember the dish as 

  • Chicken was cut in thin narrow strips(not chunks) and skewered.
  • Peanut sauce was spicy.It was divine with Satay.
I know that peanut butter is not authentic Thai ingredient but sweetness and spiciness works very well.I served the meal with Caribbean rice.

We checked out the map of Thailand.Now i know why origin of this dish is so blurry.It sounds Thai, Indonesian and Malaysian all at the same time because it all share neighborly love. However,I am going to stay on ‘Thai’ track.That’s how i was introduced to it.

Our missionary prayer:

I came to know about Darin and Stacie a while ago.Young missionary couple currently in Thailand.I also found out that Darin had been on missionary work in India earlier.Even though I don’t know them personally,I do know his mom,who is so proud to have son and daughter-in-law who love Jesus so much.Darin was kind enough to let me use their Thailand click  in this blog.You can check out Darin and Stacie ministry in Thailand at .



We prayed for Darin and Stacie that our providential God will help them and encourage them at every step of the way to carry out the  ministry they have started.We prayed  that Thai people would be blessed by the Gospel of Christ and will get to know Him personally.

  1. Nice recipe.

    I like satay sauce, although I guess the peanut butter adds quite a few calories.
    But a good thing about this recipe compared to a few other recipes I saw here is that you eat the chicken without the skin, which has a lot of fat.
