Today is National Peanut Butter Day! I had so many recipes in my head because I love peanut butter and I use it a lot in cooking. I decided to share one of my families favorite peanut butter recipes and guess what, it is also low-calorie! My Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce is most definitely a family favorite!
This will be on the Super Bowl menu! I use peanut butter in both the marinade and the dipping sauce. Yes, we continue staying on track for a Healthy January. You can have delicious food and keep it healthy.
This chicken satay is super easy to make and always a hit. The chicken can sit in the marinade for 30 minutes and up to 24 hours. I usually place the chicken in the marinade at night to use the next day. The Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce is a favorite. It has the perfect amount of spice and the food processor does all the work!
Everyday Tip: When chicken is on sale, I buy a lot and make freezer meals. I make the marinade for this chicken and cut up the chicken and place them in freezer bags together. When I am ready to make it, the marinade and chicken defrost together, easy peasy!
Easy appetizers like this Chicken Satay are :
Tips to make Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce:
- The longer the chicken marinades, the better! At least 30 minutes, overnight is best.
- Grill the chicken on the gas or charcoal is my favorite. If the weather is bad, use either a grill pan or broil the chicken.
- I like to use longer pieces of chicken and thread on skewers. Cubed chicken also works well.
- If using wooden skewers, soak them at least 30 minutes in water so the wood does not burn when grilled.
- The Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to eat.
- Adjust the spices to your families liking, as always, that’s the beauty of cooking. Feel free to get creative.
