There’s something about meat on a stick that makes dinner more fun for the kids. My son wants to eat the meat right off the stick and my girls prefer I slide the meat off and cut into pieces. Either way, this Peanut Butter Chicken Satay recipe (aka Chicken on a Stick) is a hit!
I also love that I can do all the prep-work before heading out the door for the day and when we get home I can just pop them in the oven, make some rice and steam some veggies.
Simply mix your sauce.
Slice chicken into strips.
Put on skewers.
Coat the chicken then refrigerate or bake right away.
Place on baking sheet.
... and enjoy!
2 large chicken breasts, sliced into strips
½ cup peanut butter, we use smooth but crunchy would work too
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp sesame oil
Note: This recipe can easily be doubled for entertaining or freezing.
Add peanut butter, honey and sesame oil into a bowl and stir until combined.
Put chicken strips onto skewers and coat with peanut butter sauce. I use my hands because it’s the fastest way to do it, but it’s definitely a bit messy.
If desired, put the coated chicken into a dish, cover and refrigerate up to 12 hours. This is not a requirement, but I like to do the prep work before school/work and then all I have to do before dinner is bake!
Place chicken onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in pre-heated 350F oven for 20 to 25 minutes until chicken is cooked through and flipping at the half-way mark.
Serve with rice and veggies and enjoy!
