‘Tis the Season for holiday parties and delicious appetizers. Here’s a great appetizer that looks and sounds fancy when really it’s pretty easy to make at home: Chicken Satay with a peanut dipping sauce. If you’re headed to a party this month, this would be a great app to bring and easily warm up when you arrive.
I’ve partnered with Marzetti® using their Simply Dressed line of refrigerated salad dressing for this recipe.
For the chicken satay, here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 chicken breasts - boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Marzetti Simply Dressed Ginger Sesame Dressing
- Pound flat two chicken breasts. I like to use an old (cleaned out) plastic bag from a cereal box. The plastic on those bags is indestructible.
- Once pounded flat, slice the chicken breasts into thin strips.
- Pour the entire bottle of dressing into a bowl for marinating.
- Weave the chicken strips onto wooden skewers and place into the dressing to marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes up to an hour.
- Place all the skewers onto a wire cooling rack over a lined baking sheet. Covering the wooden skewers with tin foil while they cook.
- Place this baking sheet under the broiler of your oven for 6 - 7 minutes flipping and rotating the skewers half way through, until the chicken is cooked and browned on all sides.
- Make peanut dipping sauce
Now for the peanut dipping sauce…this sauce can be made a day in advance and refrigerated. Serve it at room temperature.
Here’s the recipe:
- ½ cup creamy peanut butter
- ¼ cup hot water
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons juice from 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons Asian chili sauce
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 1 medium garlic clove, minced or pressed
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 green onions chopped fine (green and white parts)
- Whisk the peanut butter and the hot water together in a medium bowl.
- Stir in the remaining ingredients.
- Transfer to a smaller bowl.
That’s it. I’m excited for you to try it!
