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.
