You can definitely find meat on a stick at most music festivals, especially if it’s deliciously charred and served with a taste-bomb sauce and a scattering of fresh herbs. These skewers string together our tender chicken pieces, slathered with salty, spicy, creamy satay sauce.

  • 2 Tbsp peanut oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ½ cup crunchy peanut butter (make sure no sugar added)
  • ⅓ cup roasted, salted peanuts, chopped (so that there’s a mixture of bigger pieces and powdery pieces)
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 Tbsp tamari soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 juicy lime
  • 1 fresh red chili, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 12 Skewers

How to make:

  1. Fire up your barbecue or place a griddle pan over a high heat on your stove
  2. Rub your chicken cubes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
  3. Thread your chicken onto your skewers, leaving a gap at the end so you can easily carry the skewer
  4. Place the chicken skewers onto the hot barbeque or griddle and cook on all sides until cooked in the middle and slightly charred on the outside
  5. Make the satay sauce: drizzle the oil onto a saucepan and place over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and stir as they soften. Add the peanut butter, peanuts, coconut cream, tamari, lime juice, chili, salt and pepper and stir as everything melts harmoniously together. Set aside
  6. Once the chicken is cooked through, use a pastry brush to paint the satay sauce onto the skewers so that each piece of chicken is generously coated
  7. Serve on a paper plate with a scattering of fresh cilantro
