  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • Bamboo skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
Peanut Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Water, as needed to thin out the sauce


  1. In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, fish sauce, honey, lime juice, minced garlic, ground coriander, ground cumin, and turmeric to make the marinade.
  2. Add the chicken strips to the marinade, making sure they are well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, prepare the peanut dipping sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, honey, lime juice, grated ginger, and minced garlic. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce is smooth and well combined. If the sauce is too thick, thin it out with a little water. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Thread the marinated chicken strips onto the soaked bamboo skewers.
  5. Grill the chicken skewers for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and slightly charred.
  6. Serve the grilled Thai Chicken Satay Skewers hot off the grill with the peanut dipping sauce on the side.
  7. Garnish with chopped peanuts and fresh cilantro, if desired. Enjoy the explosion of flavors with each bite!
