I don't even remember when I made this. It was definitely some time ago. It was definitely while Jeff and I were still together. It was so easy to make though-- typically chicken satay is made by flattening chicken and threading it onto skewers and then grilling them. However, I had no skewers, so I cut the chicken into strips and just grilled them flat. That also made me need to pour some of the tangy peanut sauce ontop. But it was good!!
The recipe I found and used was on bloomalicious. I don't even remember how I had stumbled upon it, but it definitely had been sitting in my 'food' favourites folder for a long time before I actually got around to making it. I have always enjoyed chicken satay at restaurants so it seemed like worth a try.
I feel that the peanut sauce was a little vinegary-- which it's probably supposed to be. I liked it. Also, don't be fooled, that's black rice that it's sitting on. Which I loooove.
