Day 19

Here's a meal with a little international flair.  I am happily surprised that it went over so well in my house (I am feeding some fairly picky eaters), there were no leftovers!  We did our chicken on the grill, but you could also cook it under the broiler or even stove top if you wanted (forget the skewers if you do stove top).  You could also use a store bought Peanut Sauce, but this sauce was so easy, why would you want to? I'm sure the leftovers would be tasty (IF you end up with some).  Serve with rice or noodles- your choice!

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
Chicken Satay...
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 teaspoons honey
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cloves minced garlic
1 pound chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes

Peanut Sauce...
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
2 cloves minced garlic

Combine all "Chicken Satay" ingredients to a resealable bag.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Immerse bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.
Thread cubed chicken onto wet skewers, leaving some room between pieces. 
Over medium heat, grill your chicken, turning occasionally until all pieces are cooked through about 10-12 minutes. 
To make sauce- combine all sauce ingredients in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sauce is smooth and warm.  Serve with chicken.
