Sizzling Asian Chicken Skewers with Spicy Peanut Sauce

Healthy Fact of the Day

Chicken skewers, also known as satay, are a popular street food in many Southeast Asian countries, particularly in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The combination of marinated, grilled meat and a flavorful dipping sauce has made this dish a beloved favorite around the world.



  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
  • Sliced green onions and sesame seeds for garnish

For the Spicy Peanut Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
  • Water to thin the sauce, if needed


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes to create a marinade.
  2. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and toss to coat evenly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 4 hours, to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.
  3. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  4. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers, distributing the pieces evenly.
  5. Grill the chicken skewers for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and lightly charred on the outside.
  6. While the skewers are grilling, prepare the spicy peanut sauce by whisking together the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, sesame oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes in a bowl. If the sauce is too thick, thin it out with a little water until it reaches your desired consistency.
  7. Remove the grilled chicken skewers from the heat and let them rest for a few minutes.
  8. Serve the sizzling Asian chicken skewers hot, garnished with sliced green onions and sesame seeds, alongside the spicy peanut sauce for dipping.
