10 Reviews for Thai Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce


I was looking for an easy dinner with some Asian flare and hoped I'd found it in this recipe. Nope! This may be the worst thing I've ever eaten. The fish sauce was really overpowering on the chicken and the peanut sauce just tasted like thin peanut butter, no spice at all and zero other flavors came through. My husband bravely ate most of his bowl but only after adding a ton of extra soy sauce and Sirracha sauce to mix it up. Also, prepare for your whole house to smell like fish sauce. Bottom line, ew!

Quick, easy

Super Easy and Tasty

Delicious recipe. I did have fish sauce on hand and I think it added a nice fullness to the dish's flavor. Not too spicy either. Family loved it.

Easy to prepare using ingredients I had on hand.

This is by far the best chicken satay and peanut sauce. We always triple the peanut sauce. A family favorite!!

easy and tasty

Helpful tip for this

I dwindled this down to about 200 calories per serving. Several ingredients in the peanut sauce are not necessary. I usually make a peanut sauce from It's her grandma's recipe, it's easy and for this, you can scale it way down, just enough for the chicken. Also, it tastes amazing!
