Chicken Satay

Chicken satay is one of my favorite take out foods. The blend of spices and creamy dipping sauce makes for a tasty appetizer or main course. Because it’s served on sticks, it is also an easy finger food for any party or get together you throw. There are many different versions of this dish, but this is a Thai inspired one. It is marinated in a lemongrass ginger marinade and then grilled (you can also use a George Forman Grill if you like) and served with peanut sauce. It takes some time to put together, but overall it is quite simple and soooo delicious!
