Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce

Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Dipping Sauce

I have been trying to make some room in my freezer lately and in doing so I have been coming across all sorts of interesting things that I had forgotten about. Most recently I found some panang curry paste which is essentially a red curry paste with peanuts in it. The first thing that I think of when I think of the panang curry paste is always the spicy peanut sauce which I think I may be addicted to. With the warm weather that we have been having the last few days I was thinking about summery food and I figured that the easiest way that I could get my spicy peanut sauce fix was to make a simple chicken satay and serve it with the dipping sauce. I am a huge fan of skewered grilled meat and this chicken satay is no exception! It is super simple to make, only needing a bit of marinating time and then you just throw it on the grill. The chicken came out nice and tender and light and fresh and it was packed full of flavour! Now I am looking forward to grilling season even more. Time to go see what else I can find in my freezer.

For me warm weather means I can use the grill pan in the kitchen without smoking up my apartment because I can open the windows. ;-)
