Malaysian Chicken

Malaysian Chicken Satay

Alison Barshak is the chef/owner of Alison at Blue Bell, a popular restaurant in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. She channeled Asian flavors for this chicken dish.

Start to finish: 1 hour
Makes: 6 Servings

1 teaspoon ground lemongrass powder or lemon zest
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
1 fresh red chili, minced, or 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce*
2 cups chopped shallots
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice in 1/4 cup water
1/2 cup water
1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
3-1/2 tablespoons coriander seeds, ground
*Available in the ethnic foods section of most major supermarkets.

1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce or red pepper flakes, to taste
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons rice-wine vinegar or white-wine vinegar
2 teaspoons ginger, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup water
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into strips and threaded onto metal skewers

Preheat the grill to high heat. Put the first four marinade ingredients in a food processor and grind. Heat a nonstick pan, pour in the oil, then add ground mixture. Cook until fragrant (about 5 minutes).

Combine the remaining marinade ingredients in a pot on the stove; add the cooked mixture. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes. Let cool, then pour over chicken and marinate for 45 minutes.

Mix all satay ingredients together, except the water and chicken. Slowly add the water until the sauce reaches desired consistency. Grill chicken strips for 2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Put the skewers on a plate and pour some sauce over them. Serve with a bowl of extra sauce.

Talking about Grill is nice and easy but there are important things that should be publicized often. On this blog you will find what I am talking about - They also have a project to launch in US that will be the commercial solution for all those issues. This should be shared! Keep promoting the good things!
