The first time I tried this, I didn't know what Satay was. When I tasted it I knew immediately - OH, this is Peanut Dipping Sauce !!
I like to grill or broil chicken tenders & use this for the is great, I usually serve a ranch dressing along side to have a variety of dips for the chicken.

I have eaten at many Thai restaurants and have tried some satays that weren't that great but I have to say that this one was really delish! I loved all the great flavors that shined through on this dish. I felt that it had the perfect amount of spice but you can adjust the heat to your liking.

This dipping sauce is great with grilled chicken or beef. I used chicken breast and rubbed them with olive oil and sprinkled on Essence of Emril seasoning. I then cooked them on an small indoor grill and it made for a quick and easy dinner! Cut them into strips, dip and enjoy!


Cook the olive oil, sesame oil, red onion, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes in a small heavy pot on medium heat until the onion is transparent - maybe 10 - 15 minutes.
Whisk in the vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, peanut butter, ketchup, sherry, and lime juice while cooking a minute more. Cool
Serve with cooked skewered chicken, or meat of your choice.
