This is another quick and easy recipe coming out of my kitchen. Taste like satay but minus all the work. Since Carlos has yet to set up our backyard furniture and grill I have to do it in the oven. All I have to do is marinate it and bake/grill it in the oven. I love this dish and never get tired of it as it always reminds me of home. I will definitely make this dish again.
6 pieces chicken thigh – skin and fat removed
1 shallot – finely chopped
1” ginger – finely grated
1 tbsp finely chopped lemongrass
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp coriander powder
½ tsp cumin powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp creamy peanut butter
3 tbsp water
1. Clean, remove skin and fat from the chicken thigh. Pat is dry with paper towel. Loosen up the peanut butter with the water and mix well. Add in all the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour it over the chicken and let it marinate for at least an hour.
2. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degree F. Line a baking sheet with some aluminum foil. Drizzle on some olive oil and coat it evenly on the baking sheet.
3. Line the chicken pieces on the baking sheet and bake in the over for 25 minutes, turning them over, basting them (with the pan juice) between baking.
4. Turn the oven function to broil, broil the chicken pieces until golden brown. Serve with rice or salad.
