Serves 4 as an entree
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!

Sounds yummy! Broil on high or low?
My picky boyfriend gobbled these up! I’m going to try the sauce on stirfry next time. Thanks for sharing this with us!
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 :)
Hello Claire. You can always leave out the jalapeno.
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.
I can’t find unsweetened coconut milk. Has anyone used sweetened coconut milk? If so what were your results?
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!
What’s the calorie count? I prepped the skewers to stick in the oven when I get home, can’t wait.

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.
Hi. We had a brief technical problem. All is well. :)
What happened to the recipe? I was going to make this tonight and I can’t see it!
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!!!
would the recipe change a whole lot if i just used regular 1% milk? thanks!
Hi Meredith. The coconut milk adds a lot of flavor. ~Amy
