Simple Supper Monday, Vol 65: Chicken Satay

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday!

Posts have been a bit on the light side the past week or so. Bitty Bug, who is now 4 months old, is going through...something. I'd imagine it's the 4 month growth spurt, but she's ALL OVER THE PLACE. It's strange how 2 kids can be so different: Little Chica had a very different temperament (fussy and sensitive), but was not affected by growth spurts as a baby. Bitty bug is more easy going, but her sleep, eating and schedule gets completely thrown to the wayside during these times of growth.

So, as you can imagine, MY LIFE gets thrown to the wayside, as I try to figure out what Bitty Bug wants or needs (and failing miserably), while also trying to give love and attention to Little Chica (and failing miserably). There may have been a few tears shed last week (mine), but here's to hoping for a better week!

And a new Simple Supper Recipe!

In the midst of sleep-deprived insanity, I still managed to try a few new recipes last week. And I am happy to report TWO of them turned out fabulous! I'll share one today and one next week. Today's recipe is for those who 1) need some new inspiration for grilled chicken and 2) love Thai food.

Ok, even if you don't love Thai food as much as we do, you'll still most likely love this recipe.

When I go to a new Thai restaurant, I order the same 2 things. It's kind of like my litmus test against all previous Thai restaurants. I get the vegetable spring rolls and the Chicken Satay. Mmmm. They are always served with awesome dipping sauces, and taste SOOOOOO good!

I happened upon a really great Chicken Satay recipe, and wanted to pass it along. When Hubby fired up the grill and threw these baby's on the grate, he said it smelled like heaven. When we both took a bite at the dinner table, we agreed: authentic tasting and perfect. Now I just need to get a good dipping sauce recipe....

Simple Supper Monday


tablespoons creamy peanut butter
tablespoon brown sugar
tablespoons curry powder
cloves garlic, chopped
teaspoon hot pepper sauce, such as Sriracha
skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips


Step 1
In a mixing bowl, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, limejuice, brown sugar, curry powder, garlic and hot pepper sauce. Remove about a quarter of the sauce and put in aseparate bowl to use for basting.
Step 2
Preheat a grill to high heat.
Step 3
Weave the chicken onto skewers, then grill for 2-3 minutes per side, basting as they cook.
Step 4
Serve with peanut sauce on the side for dipping.

Seriously. SO GOOD. We ate them as a meal, but skewered up, they would also make a great appetizer (or midnight snack!). We convinced Little Chica to eat some by calling it "Peanut Butter Chicken." And she obliged. Who wouldn't?

If you have a good dipping sauce recipe to go along with this, send it (or any other SImple Supper recipes!) my way:

Here's to hoping for a better week! For all of us!
