Ingredients

  • FOR THE STRAWBERRY SATAY SAUCE:
  • 1 pint Strawberries hulled and halved or quartered (reserve a few for garnish)
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice approximately 1 large lime
  • 1 cup peanut butter your favorite brand
  • ¾ cup coconut milk light can be used
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or grated
  • ½ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce low sodium may be used
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • FOR THE CHICKEN:
  • 2 - 3 pounds chicken tenders
  • wooden skewers soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
  • tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • tablespoons soy sauce I used low sodium
  • salt and pepper
  • FOR THE GARNISH:
  • diced strawberries
  • chopped peanuts
  • chopped scallions

Instructions

  • FOR THE STRAWBERRY SATAY SAUCE:
  • Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and stir well.
  • Bring the sauce to a simmer and cook on low for 10 - 15 minutes.
  • Mash the cooked strawberries into the sauce using a potato masher leaving as much texture as you like.
  • This sauce can be made in advance and refrigerated up to 3 days if needed.
  • TO MAKE THE CHICKEN:
  • Thread 2 chicken tenders on each wooden skewer which has been soaked in water.
  • Brush each chicken skewer liberally with oil, and soy sauce.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the chicken skewers on a grill pan (or an outdoor grill) over medium/high heat until grill marks appear (approximately 3 minutes per side).
  • Spoon approximately ½ cup of the strawberry satay sauce into a small bowl and use it for brushing on the chicken.
  • Brush each chicken skewer liberally with the strawberry satay sauce and continue to grill for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  • Cover the grill pan with foil or a lid (or lower the lid on the grill), and cook until the chicken is no longer pink in the center or when it reaches an internal temperature of 165-degrees on an instant-read meat thermometer.
  • *Note - if using an indoor grill pan, you'll most likely need to cook the chicken in batches. Keep the chicken skewers warm in the oven while grilling the remaining skewers.
  • Place the chicken on a serving platter along with the remaining strawberry satay sauce for dipping and garnish the chopped strawberries, peanuts, and scallions.

Notes

The strawberry satay sauce can be made up to 3 days in advance and kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
