Daring Kitchen January 2010 Challenge: Satay
The January 2010 Daring Cooks’ Challenge was hosted by cuppy of cuppylicious. She chose satay.
Some of the challenges have been quite, well, challenging, so I was so happy that this recipe did not require lots of exotic ingredients or multiple steps.
I made the chicken satay variation, and I learned that the broiler works quite well to cook the skewers inside the house. I was a skeptic, but now I have to change my tune. The skewers were as crispy and moist as if they were cooked on the grill. Mmmm.
My tips for skewers;
1) Use boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. You'll have a noticeable improvement in your skewers, because the thighs stay juicy.
2) Put a strip of foil between the ends of the skewers and the grill, so the ends don't burn off. With the broiler, I folded the foil loosely over the ends of the skewers. It worked great.
