Without a doubt my favorite foods are finger foods, which explains why my “served with with fingers or forks” appetizer category has so many posts.  Let’s add skewers to the list of favorite food delivery vehicles.  Random thought….it has been at least 20 years since I’ve ordered a Pu Pu Platter from a Chinese restaurant, not even sure if they’re still popular and on the menu.  Some day soon I may have to try and recreate this fantastic appetizer (along with a flaming Scorpion Bowl).  For now we will focus on Chicken Satay.

Combine all marinade ingredients then coat chicken strips.  Refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight.

Soak bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes.  Weave chicken onto skewers and grill over medium heat, cooking each side for 2-3 minutes until done.  Remember the trusty digital meat fork…this will make your grillin’ life so much easier.

Sprinkle with scallions & cilantro leaves and serve with peanut sauce (still love House of Tsang Bangkok Padang Peanut Sauce in a pinch).

Fantastic appetizer, that can be made ahead and thrown on the grill just before guests arrive.
