Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

I made this for my girlfriend’s Lorraine birthday party on Sunday. She said that she wanted satay and here’s what I made.

Ingredients

For the Peanut Sauce
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup hot water
2 tablespoons lime juice from 1 to 2 limes
2 tablespoons Sriracha
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves
1 medium garlic clove, minced
2 scallions , white and green parts, sliced thin

For the Satay
2 lb of chicken breast meat, cut into 1-2 inch pieces
1/8 cup fish sauce
1/8 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons Sriracha
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro leaves
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
4 scallions , white and green parts, sliced thin
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro leaves for garnish

Whisk peanut butter and hot water together in medium bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients for the peanut sauce; transfer to serving bowl and set aside.

Put chicken cubes in a glass casserole and combine the fish sauce, oil, chili sauce, brown sugar, cilantro, garlic, and scallions with the chicken. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour. After marinated, weave chicken onto individual skewers. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place skewers on the foil. Coat skewers with marinade that’s left over.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook chicken for about 6 minutes, flip over and cook for an additional 6 minutes. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with cilantro, and serve with the peanut sauce.
