  • Thread each chicken piece onto a skewer (fold the pieces slightly as you work so the skewers go in and out of the meat). Place skewered chicken in a shallow dish; season with salt and pepper. Drizzle oil and remaining tablespoon soy sauce over chicken; turn to coat.

  • Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter; garnish with cilantro, if desired. Serve with chutney sauce.

  • Note: You will need 12 metal or wooden skewers for this dish; soak wooden skewers thoroughly in water before using to prevent them from scorching on the grill.

Cook's Notes

The peanut-chutney sauce can be refrigerated in a covered container for up to a week. If you like, double the recipe, and serve the extra with grilled pork or as a dipping sauce for shrimp.

A simple great dinner. The water added to the peanut mixture makes it super smooth. I didn't cut the chicken up into strips and just grilled them whole, saves time and skewers.

Fast and easy dinner. Make sure not to use than 1/4 cup peanut butter or it will overpower the sauce. I couldn't find mango chutney but was able to find peach - the sauce was very good . The chicken satay done on the grill was terrific and a wild rice dish was a nice accompaniment.
