Welcome to my cooking blog. My name is Michelle Jenkins. Let me start by admitting that these are NOT gourmet meals, they are NOT fine dining, but they are mine. I have cooked all of these recipes and taken my own photos. They are fairly simple recipes, most of them are quick to prepare and cook and all of them are delicious. I only post my successes!

Satay Chicken Skewers

This recipe is pretty close to authentic Thai. The chicken is meant to be marinated overnight, however due to our busy lifestyles, I've made this a quick and easy recipe. It can be served as an entree or a main and is a winner with the kids. This serves 2 as a main with rice.


  • 8 bamboo skewers
  • 8 strips of chicken tenderloins
  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 125ml chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Steamed Jasmine rice for 2 people


  1. Soak the skewers in water for at least 30mins to prevent burning
  2. Marinate the chicken in soy sauce while the skewers are soaking
  3. Thread the chicken onto the skewers
  4. Spray a griddle pan with spray oil and cook the chicken for about 5mins each side on a medium to high heat
  5. While the chicken is cooking, in a small saucepan add the soy sauce, peanut butter, chicken stock, honey and lemon juice
  6. Whisk well and keep warm until chicken in cooked
  7. Serve the chicken skewers on a bed of steamed Jasmine rice and pour over the satay sauce.  D-E-L-icious  XD
The marinated chicken has just been skewered

Now it is cooking


  1. This one looks yummy.
    How might I be able to adjust the sauce though, I can't have soy, and am not that fond of peanut butter.

  2. Teriyaki is a mild, but tasty sauce if you just want to have marinated chicken sticks. So omit the peanut and soy sauce and use teriyaki and honey together. It won't be thick enough to use as a sauce to pour over the top, BUT it makes a great marinade to soak the chicken in before cooking.
