  • Cook's Note:
  • I also recommend adding 1/2 cup chopped green onion before cooking.
  • You can substitute lime juice for the lemon juice.
  • You can pound the chicken breast halves flat instead of cutting them into chunks. Weave the flat breasts onto skewers.
  • To broil the chicken, set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken on the prepared baking sheet and cook, turning once, until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, about 10 minutes.
  • To bake the chicken, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place chicken on the prepared baking sheet and cook until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear, about 15 minutes.

Wow, this was so very delicious! I made this using the oven method described in the notes since I didn't feel like starting up my grill. Served it with Thai roti bread (very easy to make). We used the leftovers to make the Satay Chicken Pizza recipe from this site. (I used roti bread instead of pita for the crust which probably tasted even better, IMO. Can't wait to make this recipe again. Thanks, CaptainCook!

This is so very excellent! My kids liked it and my husband raved about it! Since I didn't have any lemons, I substituted the juice of 2 limes and added 1/4 c. seasoned rice wine vinegar to make up the rest. I marinaded the chicken breasts for only 1 hour and it still came out very flavorful. My husband prefers to have his chicken well-done, so he grilled for 6 min. per side, which made the chicken a bit dry....I'd stick with the 5 min. per side. Quick, easy and super flavorful recipe!
