These Thai Chicken Satays are typically served as part of the very popular Cheesecake Factory Lettuce Wraps appetizer.
Don’t wait until you can create the entire appetizer as these are delicious on their own or with any of the following dipping sauces:
- Peanut sauce
- Sweet red chili sauce
- Tangy tamarind cashew sauce
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 2 cloves garlic - minced
- 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons water
- 4 green onions - cut into 1" pieces
- 8 Bamboo skewers (10-12 inches)
Cut chicken into 3/4" strips and place in a shallow glass dish.
Combine water, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes in a small bowl stir thoroughly. Pour over the chicken and toss until completely coated.
Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but preferably up to 2 hours, stirring periodically.
Soak bamboo skewers 20 minutes in cold water to keep them from burning.
Drain the chicken and reserve the marinade. Then weave the chicken strips onto each skewers, alternating with green onion pieces. You may need to use several pieces to cover each skewer. Brush chicken and onions with reserved marinade.
Grill the skewers on an uncovered grill over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes, turning halfway through the grilling.
