Chicken Satay

Last year at my birthday celebration, my buddy Moureen made these wonderful chicken and pork satay,  her husband graciously grilled them for everyone to munch on; of course I begged her for the recipe and today they came to use. Because I don’t have all the ingredients, so the dish you see is the improvised version, which won praises from the family as well. Next time I will cook according to the original recipe (which should taste so much more authentic), below is the modified version:

Marinating Sauce for chicken:

1 tbs. coriander powder
1/2 fresh lemon juice
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 small onion (sliced thinly)
2 tbs. Canola oil
3 tbs. teriyaki sauce
3 tbs. soy sauce
2 t. brown sugar

In a sauce pan, heat oil, add the coriander powder, sauté for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add the lemon juice, onion and garlic. Toss for another 3-4 minutes. Pour the sauce onto the cut up chicken. Add sugar and soy sauce. Marinate for up to a day before grilling. Grill for 5 minutes each side, or you can use the oven broiler, but be sure to soak the wooden sticks in water for 15 minutes to avoid burning.

    I noticed that this chicken is kind of like the Lemon vietnamese one! Looks very delicious, makes me super hungry

      Yes, very similar but tastes different, plus I didn’t cut the chicken tenders into small chunks, which saved time!
