    • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking Time: 15 minutes

    • 1. Slice chicken into long thin slices, approximately 1/4" thick and 2" in length. Pat dry with paper towels.
    • 2. Dry roast coriander seeds for a minute or two in a wok over medium heat to roast lightly, stirring often.
    • 3. Grind the coriander seeds in a mortar and pestle or electric.
    • 4. Combine all the spices with the shallot, lemon grass, galangal and garlic together in a bowl.
    • 5. Add chicken pieces to the marinade and mix well to cover meat. Allow to marinate for at least an hour or up to overnight.
    • 6. Before cooking, soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 10 minutes, so that they will not burn.
    • 7. Skewer 2 to 3 pieces of chicken onto each stick. The completed sticks are then grilled, broiled or barbequed on fairly high heat (they taste best done over charcoal, as they absorb the smoke). Turn them regularly and brush them liberally with the remaining marinade. Cooking should take between 5 and 10 minutes depending on the heat of your cooker.
    • 8. A peanut dressing accompanies these snacks. A quick and delicious substitute to the recipe below is our Satay Seasoning Powder.
    • 9. Cucumber dipping sauce (a jad), is also a common accompaniment to satay chicken. The recipe for this is below:
      • Quater of a cucumber, sliced into little pieces
      • 1 teaspoon of sugar
      • 4 tablespoons of rice vinegar
      • 2 Thai shallots, chopped finely
      • 3 Thai red chillies, finely sliced
      • Mix all the above ingredients together and leave for a few hours
