Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce is one of our favorite appetizers. Better than anything we have ordered at a restaurant!
Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce
My husband made this Chicken Satay for me for Mother’s Day and it was so incredibly good! I loved the meal, partly because of all the delicious flavor, and partly because I didn’t have to cook 😉 We almost always order this as an appetizer when we got out for Thai food, but this recipe is much better than anything we have ordered and you get a lot more for your money!

The chicken has such great flavor, the peanut sauce adds a little spice, and the cool cucumber salad just balances all the flavor out and acts as a coolant. The three foods together make the most tasty appetizer! Even though it is considered an appetizer at most Thai restaurants, I could definitely have it as my own main dish.
