chicken thighs, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
ground white pepper
sunflower seed oil
kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
This is one of the better tasting peanut sauce here! Love it! Adjust the salt and sugar to taste. I doubled the sauce and used just over 1 tbsp of brown sugar. Will be making this again for sure!
The marinade consists of oil, salt & pepper, so it’s not adding any flavor to the chicken. I found the peanut sauce very diluted/watered down, so if I were to make again, I’d definitely reduce the amount of water. You’re pretty much relying on the peanut sauce for the flavor on this recipe. Made it exactly as written, tasted, and then started adding ingredients to make it work for us. I cut the chicken into 1” pieces, and did not sauce the skewers until the chicken was just about cooked. If you brush on the sauce too soon, you’ll end up with burned skewers waiting for the chicken to cook. I bought a bottle of kecap manis for this recipe (not a staple in my pantry), and for any others who aren’t familiar with it, just wanted to give you a heads up that plain soy sauce is not a good substitution. Consistency is very thick, and it tastes a bit like molasses IMO. The chicken was juicy, and with modifications, we enjoyed it, but as written, it would have been a disappointment.
Very good flavor. Sautéed chopped up chicken tenderloins in sesame oil with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Added peanut butter, lime juice, red pepper flakes, a little water, brown sugar, and regular soy sauce. Did it all in one pan...no skewers or anything. Did everything to taste as well. Was very good and simple.
Made this for my boyfriend because it was his favorite meal. I wasn't too sure about it since I have never had it. I thought it was good and he loved it!! He grew up in Indonesia so I guess I did good! This is going to be my go to recipe from now on!!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!
My picky family was crazy about this!
It's delicious...yummy....enak. I tried and everyone in the family loved it so much. Though I am a vegetarian and so does my daughter, I still tasted it to know how yummy it was and yes it was good. delicious. Two thumbs for you.
My husband and my boy loved so ...so much.
Thanks for the recipe.
