Coconut peanut pesto chicken satay:

I am still working my way through the freezer and had some Chicken Breast from Herb Fed to use. I had been looking through the Korean BBQ book for some thigh recipes when I spotted Coconut peanut pesto chicken satay. It ticked so many boxes that it had to go on the list!

This recipe is from Korean BBQ by Bill Kim and Chandra Ram:

Price: Check on Amazon

The Meat:

4 chicken breasts, around 1.3kg for £18 from Herb Fed. Great quality meat and the breasts were massive.

The Prep:

I removed the skin from the chicken and sliced it into inch thick slices then threaded them onto the skewers.

Blackening Rub: In a bowl I mixed Sweet Paprika, Garlic Powder, Chilli Powder (all 3 from Steenbergs) and salt.

Korean Pesto: Nuoc Cham Sauce, Lemongrass Chilli Sauce, Chipotle in adobo sauce, Kimchi, Dry roasted peanuts, basil leaves and rapeseed oil. All in a bowl then blitzed.

Nuoc Cham Sauce: Dark brown sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, garlic and Thai chillies. In a bowl and whisked.

Lemongrass Chilli Sauce: Garlic, ginger, lemongrass, sweet chilli sauce, sambal oelek and toasted sesame oil. In a bowl and whisked.

The chicken was sprinkled with the Blackening Rub:

The skewers are Russian Skewers from Manchester Vacs:

If you want to buy a set of four skewers they are available from Amazon:

The Cook:

A chimney of Oxford Charcoal Oak was placed all over the base of the Napoleon Pro 22 so the whole grill was for direct cooking. Once at temp the skewers were placed on top.

After a few minutes I rotated the skewers and repeated until the internal temperature of the meat was 75c.
