Balinese Chicken Satays

Hello food lovers!!
Today I’m glad to share with you a simple recipe that I brought back from my trip to Bali: chicken satays with peanuts sauce, balinese style.

You will find those satays in several Asian countries: Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia… You can also have them with beef if you like it better.

To make this recipe, the best cooking way is to use your barbecue. I didn’t take that option (it’s my husband’s job to deal with the barbecue, he wasn’t there, and I feel much more at ease with my regular cooking hob!!) and it was still delicious.

You can easily understand that the key point of the recipe is the quality of the ingredients, and especially of the chicken itself. Make sure to buy good meat.

As far as spices are concerned, I took the ones from Albert Ménès.

Those satays are really good for a nice starter with the peanut sauce or for a nice lunch or dinner, served with basmati rice in that case.

The utensils:

My Santoku knife (you need it sharp for the chicken fillets)

My hand mixer by Kenwood (to blend the peanuts)

Are you ready to fly to Bali??

The recipe, Chef!

    Comment recommandez vous de faire au barbecue? Cela me semble plus compliqué pour badigeonner avec la sauce… Marinade ? Merci ?

      Bonjour Caroline,
      Le mieux serait de prendre une barquette en aluminium et de disposer les brochettes dedans avec un peu de sauce. 😉

    Top ! Merci! Je pose la barquette en alu sur le barbecue suite pour les cuire, ou c’est juste pour mariner ?

      Oui c’est pour cuire sur le barbecue. Pour la marinade, prenez un plat en verre ce sera mieux.
