Chicken Satay is a traditional dish from Indonesian and Malaysian. The chicken has been marinated overnight in spice and peanut sauce, then skewered and grilled for a fast and easy weeknight dinner. When preparing, keep some of the marinade on reserve and use as a dipping sauce.

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

  1. Place the chicken in a large shallow bowl or baking dish.

  3. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning a few times.
  4. Prepare a fire in a grill or preheat the broiler. I used the Hamilton Beach Indoor grill.
  5. Thread the chicken onto skewers.
