This was a great recipe! I had previously made some Satay chicken based on a pre-packaged mix that was given to me, but when I went to buy another mix at the store, I was horrified at the list of ingredients (sugar, peanuts, with the only exotic spice being lemongrass). This recipe appealed to me because of its lack of exotic ingredients: I don't typically stock fish paste, lemongrass, etc.
I followed the ingredient list pretty closely, although I never measure quantities and just estimated. I did use my whole 3-lb. bag of chicken tenders. That suited the sauce exactly, as other reviewers have mentioned that the recipe makes too much sauce. Also, I avoid sugar as much as possible, so I used honey instead (maybe a few tablespoons?), and added a pinch of chili pepper. We had plenty for our whole family (two adults, four smallish kids) with leftovers.
We don't grill, so I baked the chicken (not even cut up) in a glass pan in the oven at 400 for an hour or so. I hate waste, so I just dumped the marinade in the pan with the chicken, mixed up the sauce, and poured that over the chicken. The sauce was bubbling when I took it out, and we served it over rice noodles. Delicious, and so simple to make! I'm adding this one to my recipe box.
