Everything is more fun on a stick, right? Well, that’s what I thought then I confirmed my suspicion as I sat and watched my family (yes, my husband included) practically fight over the last two of these chicken skewers the other night. Before my girls even knew what this dish was called they desperately needed more of “those things.” And the best part was that it took me no time at all to put this fancy-looking dinner together, which means it’s definitely “good enough” for company!

Ten skewers of Coconut Chicken Satay with chicken pieces covered in coconut breading on a plate.

  1. Hey there! Are these spicy at all? I’m wanting to feed them to my 1 and 2 year old, but I don’t want to spice it up too much! Thanks in advance, Claire :)

    I made this a few weeks back, and it was a huge hit. My three year old was asking to eat the leftovers as he got ready for bed that night… We made him wait until the next day. ;) I got a good price on chicken today, and this is on the menu for tonight. Thanks for a great recipe my family loves.

  3. I can’t find unsweetened coconut milk. Has anyone used sweetened coconut milk? If so what were your results?

  4. Yeahh…finally you made this Satay recipe, Even I come from Australia and ate Chicken Satay many times, I have’nt post any Satay recipe, because took a long time to make this with a lot of ingredients. You’re right, grounding peanuts is a hard work. Normally I used 100% peanut butter that I bought at Asia shop or organic shop. Amazing Satay pictures

    This was great. My kids both loved it. I made brown ride and steamed broccoli and red peppers. The sauce worked well with getting my little guy to eat his veggies!

  6. Good but not more. I used extra fresh pressed garlic as well, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, freshly squeezed lemon juice plus the rest of the ingredients. I also added red bell pepper & red onion to the skewers. I did ours under broil. I`d use another recipe ext time.

  7. I’ve been following your blog for a while and I love all your recipes…but I have to say, the sauce for this chicken is INSANELY GOOD!!!
