Summer Vacation. Here we are. I’m finally getting a blog post up.
As I longed for the days of hot coffee and pajamas until 10 am, I had quickly forgotten that there will also be 4 kids in the house…ALLLLLL DAY LONG.
Two weeks of vacation has passed. Montana has been super rainy. So, the children have been indoors. ALLL DAY LONG.
What are we doing, you ask? Remember BEWITCHED? The show with Elizabeth Montgomery? She would twitch her nose to cast a spell? Old Darren. New Darren. Mrs.Kravtiz? Endora?
Well, all this rain has my kids and I on binge watch every morning. Seriously, it has been so fun. It all ties in with the Harry Potter baloney too. I’m calling it Vintage Summer 2018. I just bought two jumpsuits, a slip and slide, and we just made jello pudding pops. (On the blog soon)
Chicken Satay Skewers are an easy and fast and fun to eat. The “no nut” sauce only has 5 ingredients! Honestly if you didn’t marinate the chicken it would still be delicious!
Face it, we didn’t know what Satay was in 1980. I’m glad we have evolved. Back to the future.
Chicken Satay My Way
Marinade: (optional) You could just salt, pepper and oil the chicken on the skewers and grill. I just love this marinade.
- 2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
- 1 Tablespoons coconut aminos or soy sauce
- 1/2 Tablespoon fresh minced ginger
- 1/4 tsp. chili flakes (red pepper flakes)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- pinch of salt
- 1 Pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs sliced in long strips
- 2 Tablespoons oil (coconut oil if you have it) drizzle on for grilling
Marinate the chicken on or off the skewers for 1-2 hours or overnight. Thread the strips on kebob skewers
Satay Sauce (allergen free)
- 1/2 cup sun butter If you don't have nut allergies, substitute peanut or almond or cashew butter ~still amazing
- 4 Tablespoons sriracha
- juice of 1 lime
- 3 tablespoons fish sauce ( I use red boat)
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce or coconut aminos
- 4-5 tablespoons water
- 1 clove garlic
If using marinade, marinate for at least 2 hours.
Blend the sauce ingredients in a blender, vitamix, or with an emersion blender (like in the picture above) until smooth. You may add more water if you want it looser. Set aside.
Thread the chicken on the skewers ( if you haven't). Grill 2-3 minutes per side until cooked through. Serve Satay Sauce on top with a squeeze of lime, spring onions, sesame or cilantro! Serve warm.
