Chicken Satay Stir-Fry

Chicken Satay Stir-Fry
Chicken tends to please most palates, whether you're cooking for a pack of finicky kids or health-conscious adults. But it can get boring if you're churning out the same old meals night after night. Mix up your usual menus with these peanut and coconut flavored chicken dishes, which use Indian spices, delectable sauces, and an endless variety of ingredients that surprise in tantalizing new ways. This Satay Chicken Stir-Fry is easy to throw together and will soon get the taste buds tingling Popular throughout Southeast Asia and Indonesia, satay is strips of skewered, grilled meat eaten with a fragrant dipping sauce Actually, I'm sure most people know what satay is. Satay must be the first thing that comes to the minds of non-locals when you mention Southeast Asian cuisine. There are many countries with their own version of satay, but the Singapore satay that I grew up with trumps all the Thai, Filipino or Indonesian versions. It's also one of the many things I miss when I'm in India So I decided to treat myself one day to satay. Preparing a dish from scratch is always fun and the messy kitchen is a burden but the outcome was excellent; finger licking good!!!

Instead preparing the normal version of skewering  I just stir fry with the peanut version of chicken satay. I happened to prepare these while I was visiting my parents last Dec in my hometown. I wanted to try out this recipe for quite sometime but never really got the chance to prepare them  from scratch  What's satay ..for those scratching or cracking your brains-Satay, delicious skewers of spice-marinated meat, are really popular in Singapore, found in hawker centres, in pasar malams (night markets) which comes with a generous bowl of peanut sauce, pressed rice cakes, cucumber and onions. On the table in just minutes, this one-bowl Asian meal beats delivery: It's faster, tastier, and better for you.This chicken dish is done in minutes and guaranteed to satisfy your takeout cravings. All those chicken lovers out that- get back to your kitchen and give your taste bud a Asian treat..with my Chicken Satay Stir Fry.. delivered straight from my kitchen to yours. Each forkful of this stir fry  bursts with Southeast Asia flavor.
