Chicken Satay

Adapted from Cradle of Flavor. Although peanut sauce is a common accompaniment, I think this recipe is flavorful enough without a sauce.

Chicken Satay (4 servings):

  • 2 lb chicken boneless skinless thighs
  • 1 tbsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 2 stalks lemongrass
  • 5 shallots
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 inch galangal (optional)
  • 2 inches ginger
  • scant 1 tbsp ground tumeric
  • 4 tbsp palm sugar or dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tbsp salt

Crush the coriander and fennel. Blend all ingredients except chicken in a food processor. Put chicken in the marinade and let sit for 1-2 hours. Skewer and cook either on a grill or under the broiler.
