Chicken Satay


4 chicken legs and thighs (preferred) or 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
Bamboo skewers, soaked in cold water for 2 hours
1 cucumber, cut into small pieces
1 small onion, quartered
Oil, for basting


3 tablespoons oil
2 stalks lemongrass, white parts only
2 cloves garlic, peeled
6 shallots, peeled
2 teaspoons turmeric powder
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon salt, or to taste
2 tablespoons sugar


Cut the chicken meat into small cubes. Blend the Marinade ingredients in a food processor. Add in a little water if needed. Marinate the chicken pieces for 6 hours or best overnight. Thread a few pieces of the chicken meat onto the bamboo skewers and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until nicely charred. Baste and brush with some oil while grilling. Serve hot with the fresh cucumber pieces and onions.
