About this Recipe

By: Caitlin Greene

Besides seafood, I love making chicken for dinner and save any leftovers for lunch the next day. I wanted something different and decided to make Chicken Satay, one I haven't made for a while. I made 2 dips for them because I was a little indecisive. Both taste so amazing together, I can have a second plate of them!

To make these chicken satay and dips, you will need the ingredients below:
-chicken breast or thigh
-coconut aminos
-lime
-curry powder
-full fat coconut milk
-garlic clove
-honey
-plain yogurt
-tahini
-cilantro
-sesame oil
-tamari soy sauce or liquid aminos
-ground ginger
-maple syrup
-almond butter
-sriracha

How do you make these Easy Chicken Satay with Creamy Honey Cilantro Lime and Almond Ginger Dips?
We will start with the chicken. Place the chicken in a cutting board and pound the chicken thinly. Cut the chicken into strips.

Next, in a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the marinade together, making sure everything is mixed together. Add in the chicken and let it marinate for 30 minutes.

Then, preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the chicken on skewers. This is optional, but if you want a crispy outside for the chicken, quickly sear the chicken for 1 minute per side on medium-high heat on a pan before baking. Add the chicken skewers to a baking pan and bake for 12-15 minutes. Once ready, remove the chicken from the oven and place onto a plate.

Now, into the 2 dips. To make the Cilantro Lime Dip, add all the ingredients for the dip into a bowl. Whisk until smooth. To make the Almond Ginger Drip, add all the ingredients for the dip into a bowl and whisk until smooth.
Now, serve the chicken together with the dips, have a seat and enjoy them!
