Easy Chicken Satay (AIP/Paleo) is, well, easy! There is minimal chopping involved in this recipe, but plenty of bright, fresh flavor.Jump to Recipe
What is it?
If you have never had it before, you might be wondering, what in the world is satay? Satay is defined as “a Southeast Asian dish consisting of small pieces of meat grilled on a skewer and served with a spiced sauce that typically contains peanuts,” according to Oxford Dictionaries. To me, it’s the yummy stuff from our favorite (pre-AIP) Thai restaurant that the kids, especially, would gobble up. You can see from this definition, though, that many ingredients are not friendly to an AIP diet. I decided to create my own.
What’s with the tigernut flour?
I know some of you will ask what you can sub for the tigernut flour. And you may even wonder what it’s doing in there! Tigernuts are not nuts, but tiny tubers. They are kinda nutty in flavor. Rather than use peanuts (not AIP friendly), I am adding tigernut flour to the dip. It serves to thicken it a little, and provide some nuttiness. You can leave it out, but I do not recommend substituting another flour.
Satay adds variety to the typical summer grilling repertoire. If you are in the mood for something from a different part of the world, try Margarita Chicken. (It tastes like you dunked a nugget into your margarita. What’s not to love? 😀) Happy grilling, everyone!
As usual, and perhaps now more than ever, I wish you great love and deep healing!
