Chicken Satay is a recipe I love. The soft delicate chicken breast or thighs skewered after being marinated in a satay sauce. I have also used as a dip, a sauce or as a marinade/sauce, this works every time. I have used molasses in this recipe but you can use peanut butter if you wish. They both provide a thickness to the marinade/sauce. The thickness is needed for the marinade/sauce to stick to the skewered chicken breasts or thighs.  This is such a popular dish, I always cook at least twice as much as planned, it always goes.
