The juicy and tender chunks of chicken covered in the warmth of curry spices and a hint of sweetness then paired with a creamy peanut sauce make this Malaysian Chicken Satay totally delicious! The marinade in this recipe works brilliantly with beef and pork, too.
Soak 20-24 think bamboo skewers in warm water for 30 minutes.
To make the chicken satay, mix together the curry powder, turmeric, brown sugar, onion, garlic, salt and oil in a large bowl. Add the chicken thigh pieces to the marinaded and combine thoroughly. Marinate the chicken for at least 1 hour (or preferably overnight in the refrigerator).
Preheat the grill to medium-high heat 400-450 F (204-232 C). Thread 3-5 pieces of chicken onto each skewer, depending on the size of the chicken pieces. The chicken should cover only the top third of the skewers.
Grill the skewers for 2-3 minutes per side, then move the skewers to medium heat (350F [177 C]) and cook the skewers for a further 2-3 minutes per side until the chicken is opauq all the way through when cut open.
Serve the satay skewers with the peanut sauce, cucumber and red onion.
