Chicken Satay – 鸡肉沙爹

Happy Weekends fellow homecooks! Today, we will be sharing our version of Thai Chicken Satay. Satay is one of the most popular street foods in Thailand! More often than not, they are made with pork. But, it can also be done using chicken or beef.

Don’t you just miss the joy of eating satay in the Night Markets of Bangkok? Or even visiting ArtBox with your friends to have some delicious street food?

Now, you can invite some friends (within the Covid-19 limitation) and rediscover this experience in the kitchen from your home 🙂

We made a simple dipping sauce at the side with fresh cut chillies, soy sauce or fish sauce, cilantro as well as some salt and sugar to your own preference.
