Recipe: Chicken Satay, Shooting From The Hip
I know I could have gotten on Food TV.com or Epicurious.com but where is the adventure in that?
I started some white rice while I made the Satay marinade/sauce, which I made to taste, so I have no quantities, but here is what I used...
I mixed it all together & when it tasted to my liking, I pulled a little bit out to use as dipping sauce & I used the rest to marinate the chicken, for about an hour & a half.
When the rice was done I let it sit with the lid on & I started the grill. While the coals were getting white hot, I rummaged through the crisper to find something else to grill, which happened to be a nice Zucchini. I sliced it & skewered it, along with the chicken & loaded it with sesame oil & five spice mix.
I grilled both until they were done & by this point La was home & making a killer salad with herbed goat cheese, greens & pickled peppercorns. We also chopped the Zuke & tossed it with the rice, creating a duo worthy of seconds.
I have never been to Thailand but I would like to think if you stopped at a Satay stall on the side of a moped & bike filled street this is how it would taste.
If not, at least this meal whisked us away to a place we have never been.
