Chicken Satay with Coconut Curry Sauce
Yield:   6-8 servings
Cook Time:   About 10 minutes
Tips:   May be cooked on an indoor grill or outdoor grill. When using an indoor grill, only use the bottom grill plate. For a thicker dip, serve dip at room temperature or chilled. If you can't find Lea & Perrins Marinade for Chicken at your local grocer, any similar chicken marinade substitute can be used. Coconut cream (or coconut milk creamer) can be found near refrigerated cream and coffee creamers in grocery stores). Yellow curry paste can be found in some traditional grocery stores, or in international grocery stores.
Suggestion:   Delicious served with a salad.
Place skewers in a long, shallow container and coat with oil. Allow to soak for at least 60-90 minutes (this helps to prevent skewers from drying out and burning during grilling).

Chicken Satay Marinade

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onions, turmeric, cayenne pepper, black pepper and salt. Reduce heat to low-medium and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly and being careful not to burn. Remove from heat and and stir in chicken marinade and lemon juice.

Thread chicken strips onto skewers, then place in an 8x12-inch glass casserole dish. Pour marinade evenly over chicken. Cover with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for an hour.

Coconut Curry Sauce

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a heavy saucepan. Add curry paste and cook, stirring, for about 30 seconds. Stir in coconut cream. Add fish sauce, ginger, coconut milk, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil, then stir in chiles and basil and remove from heat. Allow to cool.

Grilling the Chicken

If using an indoor grill, wipe the grill's grate with a lightly oiled paper towel. (If using an outdoor grill, brush grill with oil using a barbecue brush.) Preheat the indoor grill to medium-high, then place chicken skewers diagonally on the grill for 3 minutes. Flip the chicken skewers over and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. (Each side will have golden-brown grill marks.)

Arrange the chicken skewers on a platter or individual serving plates and serve with a bowl of the cooled Coconut Curry Sauce.
