I’m always looking for different recipes, unique dishes– something I’ve never tried before, especially ones that include using chicken. I’m always a fan of finding new, exciting ways to eat and prepare chicken. Introducing Satay Ayam!

This is a recipe for an Indonesian chicken, which I have never made or even eaten, so I had to give it a try. I’ve been told that Indonesian food is full of flavor, color, and spice, so I was excited to dig in! Actually, this dish is an Indonesian take on a Thai side dish that I quite enjoy called Chicken Satay. But it has some key differences, mainly in its ingredients. First of all, I don’t know about you, but I had no idea what kecap manis is, so I had to look it up. Turns out it’s an Indonesian sauce that is dark brown, thick, syrupy, really sweet soy sauce.  All the other ingredients are very basic and the directions are easy.  This recipe makes a really tasty dish.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Here’s what you need:

1 pound chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch ground white pepper
1 tablespoon sunflower seed oil
24 wooden skewers
Peanut Sauce:
1 cup water
5 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lime juice

This really is a new take on it. It’s made very similar, but tastes SO different. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it, you are just gonna have to either take my word for it or try it yourself.
