Chicken satay, a popular Thai dish, is typically made with ingredients like brown sugar, peanut butter, and soy sauce. To make this skinny version, we made healthier tweaks like using coconut sugar, natural peanut butter, and reduced sodium soy sauce.
The chicken itself has great flavor thanks to ingredients like curry powder, ginger, and garlic. The Greek yogurt that’s used simply makes the chicken that much more tender and juicy.
The peanut satay sauce is where this dish really shines and gets its tantalizing appeal from. Most satay sauces are made with a combination of peanut butter, sugar, soy sauce, and a splash of lime. We also add some chili paste for heat, as well as some chopped peanuts for garnish.
This easy chicken satay recipe works as both an entrée and an appetizer. If you’re serving this chicken satay for dinner, try serving it over a bed of fluffy rice. As an appetizer, you can simply place the chicken satay skewers on your appetizer table next some of the peanut satay sauce for dipping.
