Indonesian Chicken Sate

Number served:

Ingredients:

  • chicken breast (half breasts, bones and skin removed) - 4 unit
  • soy sauce - 1/4 cup
  • lemon - 1 unit
  • molasses - 1 tablespoon
  • red pepper flakes - 1 teaspoon
  • fresh garlic (peeled and very finely chopped) - 1 tablespoon
  • fresh ginger - 1 tablespoon

Directions:

Cut breasts into long 1 inch strips. Put the chicken and all of the other ingredients into a large bowl and mix well making sure the chicken is well coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for two hours or longer. Stir up the bowl a few times while the chicken is marinating.

You can use either a (gas or charcoal) grill or the broiler in your oven to cook the Sate.

Optional: skewer the chicken strips on wet bamboo skewers - or you can cook the chicken loose if you don't have skewers.

Broil or grill about 4 minutes on each side, occasionally applying more marinade.

Optional: if you have any available, serve with Indonesian or Thai peanut sauce, or chutney.
