Chicken Sate

Sate is an Indonesian kabob. The word translates into English as little skewer. In Indonesia, meals consist of many small dish servings. The Dutch national food is Rijsttafel that comes from Indonesia (formally the Dutch East Indies). I ordered it in Curacao for a group and was asked how many in your group and do you want the 12 or 24 dish meal?

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Salt to taste

Prepare the marinade and Peanut Sauce (recipes follows). Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes and add to the marinade. Zip the bag almost slosed and expell as much air as possible. Zip thhe bag fully closed and kneed the bag so the chicken is thoroughly coated. Marinate refrigerated for 4 to 12 hours. Prepare the grill for hot direct cooking. Shake excess marinade off of the chicken, skewer, and lightly salt. Grill directly over the fire for 3 minutes on each of the 4 sides, lid closed.
