Satay Chicken

This is a really easy recipe for the marinade needed to make Satay chicken.  The easiest way to make this is using the boneless, skinless chicken tenders available at the store.  You can also hand cut breast or thigh cuts.  I didn’t have any turmeric powder, but it didn’t matter because the flavor was still really close to what you are looking for.  Serve this with peanut sauce, although one of the kids used the chili garlic sauce and liked it a lot.


  • 1 – 1.5 lbs Chicken Tenders or  Chicken Thigh /Breast cuts, skin and fat removed
  • 1/2 Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 teaspoon Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon Coriander Powder (or Goya Achiote and Coriander seasoning)
  • 1/2 tablespoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sweet Paprika Powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon Chili Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Curry Powder
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil


  1. Chop the onion in a food processor.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a plastic bag.
  3. Add chicken and shake well.
  4. Allow to marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour – overnight.
  5. Weave chicken on bamboo skewers and grill 5-10 minutes per side until done
