Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce


I adore Thai food! Apparently this baby does to, because a lot of my pregnancy cravings have been Thai related so far. Thus this recipe. I wanted Chicken Satay, had the ingredients, and wanted to try out our new baby BBQ so... this version of yummy-ness was born! I loved how the coconut and curry flavors marinated right into the chicken! Because I didn't have red chili paste for the peanut sauce (and I was too lazy to go to the store), I threw a bunch of other stuff together that sounded like it would taste good and it worked! Delicious homemade Thai food! :)
