Chicken Satay Skewers is a dish that I grill during the cooler months and BBQ in the warmer months. This Thai recipe is easy to prepare a day in advance and leave to marinade in the fridge. One less job for the cook! Serve as a Main Dish, Side Dish and as a starter so very flexible.

  • In a large glass bowl preferably, add the coconut milk, curry powder, turmeric, brown sugar, fish sauce, ginger, garlic and soy sauce and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the chicken and massage the marinade into the chicken. Ensure all of it is covered.
  • Cover the bowl with cling film and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours. I prepare mine the night before, so the marinade has a lot longer time to do its thing.
  • If cooking on the bbq don’t forget it takes time for the coals to heat up fully.
  • When ready to cook, remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade.
  • Turn the grill on to a medium high heat.
  • Using wooden skewers, soak in water first so they don’t burn in the heat.
  • Brush lightly with neutral flavoured oil such as groundnut or canola oil.
  • Give a light sprinkle of salt and pepper and place on the grill/bbq turning regularly for up to 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked. The juices should run clear.
  • Serve with dips but especially peanut sauce


I use a pale curry powder such as yellow or pale red as this does affect the final colour of the chicken satay.
