Whenever I was in the Netherlands, I couldn't resist indulging in some Indonesian food. It was the typical "fast-food" at the time. This recipe is simple and great as a side, or an appetizer.

How to Make SatayAjam with spicy peanut butter sauce (Indonesian chicken kabobs)

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove chicken from bone and cut into one inch pieces.
  2. Marinate chicken in kecap manis (sweet Indonesian soy sauce), salt, and pepper for at least 2 hours, preferably overnite.
  3. Soak skewers if using bamboo for about an hour. Skewer chicken pieces, leaving a bit of space between each piece.

  5. Grill skewers until completely done but still moist.

  7. Note: If you like spice, try sambal (Indonesian pickled red pepper condiment)instead of the crushed red pepper flakes. Most good oriental grocery suppliers have an Indonesian offering.
