Malaysian Chicken Satay #SundaySupper

This Malaysian Chicken Satay, is delicious, simple and the perfect finger food for watching the big game, or sitting out watching the kids swim whilst you cook out. Or just serve them up in the middle of winter and dream of summer nights.

I liked to serve these with a cucumber salad and Nasi Lemak (This awesome rice recipe is coming soon!)

The marinade is super simple and if you follow my top tips for mixing up the marinade and freezing the prepared satay sticks, you can grab the tupperware box from the freezer in the morning and it will defrost and marinade ready to cook for dinner.

I haven’t taken part in the Sunday Supper posts for a while as I have just been so busy that I couldn’t commit to definitely getting a post live on a Sunday evening (well Sunday morning for most of my fellow #SundaySupper bloggers)

But this week I knew I had the perfect recipe for the theme Labor Day Menu Ideas.

Here in Australia this dish would be perfect for Australia day, especially served down on the beach whilst the kids hit the surf. Or currently I am serving it to remind me of summer (Only 4 days left of winter!!!!)

Labor Day has been a national holiday in the states since 1894 celebrating all the contributions and accomplishments of the workers who have built the United States.  It’s also the last day of summer, so what better way to celebrate than getting the grill going! 

This Malaysian Chicken Satay is easy to eat without a plate, so moorish that you reach for another and equally delicious hot from the grill and as they cool sat on a food table.

Get your friends together, get the a back yard game of footie going and enjoy some fabulous food with friends.

I am super excited to try so many of them but especially the Greek Burgers with Feta and Tzatziki Sauce and the Foil Pack Grilled Potatoes. YUM!!!

This Malaysian Chicken Satay is addictive, a wonderful mix of spices, salt and sugar are all mixed together, giving the chicken a wonderful colour and flavour. Then the chicken is grilled until tender and slightly charred.

That charring adds a delicious smoky sweet savoury hit to the chicken, so don’t worry if the edges get a little black.

This does mean you need to soak the wooden sticks to help prevent them burning. But if you are using my marinade, freeze, defrost and then cook method you will find the skewers don’t burn too badly. Or buy some metal skewers if you are always having skewer malfunctions 😉 ….actually scrap that!!! That involves more washing up and no one wants to do that on a public holiday!

    This looks awesome and delicious. However, I do believe is Nasi Lemak instead of Nagi Lemak.
