Chicken Satay w/Spicy Coconut Peanut Sauce

Kim Biegacki


We just love this dish even more now that I use the Ninja to make it. The chicken is incredibly moist because it's steam cooked instead of baked in oven. Adding the delicious creamy peanut dipping sauce made it heavenly good!

It's very easy to make.

This recipe is from my Ninja cookbook.

wooden skewers
cooking spray
1 lb
chicken tenderloins, boneless - skinless, cut in half lengthwise
2 clove
garlic, minced
1/2 - 1 tsp
cayenne pepper (more if you like it spicy)
1/2 tsp
ground ginger
salt & ground black pepper
toasted coconut (if desired to sprinkle on skewers before cooking.)


2 Tbsp
14 oz
can of coconut milk
3 Tbsp
peanut butter, creamy
1 1/2 Tbsp
soy sauce, low sodium
3 Tbsp
light brown sugar, firmly packed
fresh cilantro leaves

Directions Step-By-Step

Spray skewers and cooking rack with cooking spray. Thread chicken onto the skewers. I just laid them on the cutting board and pressed the skewer through while laying flat. It seemed to work the best. Once you have them on the skewers mix up your seasonings in a bowl cayenne, ginger, salt & pepper and sprinkle over skewers on both sides.
Add oil to your Ninja pot and set to STOVETOP HIGH and add your minced garlic. Cook for a couple minutes till sizzlin' in pot. Stir garlic while cooking. Add in the coconut milk, peanut butter, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Stir till well combined. Season with salt & pepper.
Place the roasting rack down into the Ninja while sauce is still cooking. Set your chicken skewers all on the rack. Sprinkle with toasted coconut if desired. Now, set to OVEN to 325 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes till chicken is cooked through. When cooked, remove, cover to keep warm till served.

(Both times I made this, it has been 15 minutes for my skewers.)
If need be, cook the coconut peanut butter sauce mixture for an addt'l 5 minutes or until desired thickness. Make sure to stir often. Serve skewers with sauce for dipping. We like this as a main dish and serve with a seasoned rice but it would be great as appetizers before a meal as well.
If desired, sprinkle with cilantro.
