CHICKEN SATAY PEANUT SAUCE
The chicken satay sticks could taste like shoe leather. If they did, it would be fine. This peanut-lime dressing will enhance the taste of anything.
But don’t worry. You will not be disappointed. Promise.
It’s golden-brown, perfectly grilled chicken with the perfect amount of charred and smoky goodness. With the help of some pantry spices and a coconut milk marinade, the marinade elevates the chicken to a new level of flavor.
This creamy, zesty, peanut-lime sauce really is the best peanut butter sauce you’ve ever had. SO SO SO GOOD.

In a small bowl, combine peanut butter, soya sauce, lime, brown sugar, and chili garlic sauce. Add 2-3 tablespoons of water and whisk until desired consistency is achieved. Set aside.
Combine coconut milk, brown sugar, fish sauce, turmeric, soy sauce, and curry powder in a medium-sized bowl.
Combine chicken with coconut milk in a large Ziploc bag. Marinate for 2 hours or overnight. Turn the bag every so often.
Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the marinade.
