Malaysian Satay Inspired Chicken Thighs



These Malaysian Satay Inspired Chicken Thighs were devoured directly off the baking pan (with the exception of one, that I quickly grabbed for a picture!).  They were so delicious, my kids refused to even wait for plating and my eight year old declared it, "The BEST chicken on the earth!!!"  So, total win.

The thing I love about working with brands is that it pushes me to create recipes I would never have considered on my own.  I love love love Asian food.  Seriously, just last week I declared on instagram that I would happily eat only Asian food for years not consider it a suffering in the slightest.  Because, mmmmmmm.  But amazingly, despite my love and dedication to all things Asian, I'd never tried Malaysian cuisine!  

So when I was asked by Malaysia Kitchen for the World to create a Malaysian inspired recipe, I was totally stoked.  I combed through dozens of amazing looking Malaysian recipes and decided to do an interpretation of the wildly popular Chicken Satay.

Traditionally Chicken Satay is served on a skewer, but this busy mama, has no time for all that jazz, so we went with boneless skinless chicken thighs that I chopped into strips after cooking.  I ate mine over some shaved cucumber salad with Asian Peanut Sauce.  Holy YUM.  The flavor is mild but complex with salty, sweet, savory, and umami all in one bite.  And it's a breeze to make.  


----------------------------------------


Malaysian Satay Inspired Chicken Thighs, Ingredients:


  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 teaspoon dried lemon grass
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • optional for serving: Asian Style Peanut Sauce

Malaysian Satay Inspired Chicken Thighs, Directions:


  1. Add all ingredients, except chicken, to a small food processor and pulse until ingredients are well combined.  You may need to scrape the sides with a spatula once or twice.
  2. Pour marinade into a bowl and dredge chicken in it.  Place chicken on a parchment or foil lined baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes.
  3. If you wish, you can place the chicken under the broiler for 2 - 3 minutes at the end to brown the top.
  4. Serve with Shaved Cucumber Salad and Asian Peanut Sauce.
  5. Enjoy!
