Chicken Satay

Chicken Satay
This recipe for Chicken Satay should be a staple in your kitchen! Chunks of chicken are marinated in a flavorful, tenderizing marinade, creating delicious and juicy chicken. Stick the chicken chunks onto a skewer and then grill, or bake them. I love making extra so I have leftovers to top on salads or stuff into wraps. Looking for more flavorful chicken recipes?
