Yum...yum....When I was living in Indonesia, there were plenty of chicken satay, and I think, you'll find this style of chicken satay in asia only. But for the taste, you'll find it in Indonesia only, because Singapore and Malaysia, they have this type of chicken satay, but the taste is really different.

In Indonesia, some sellers were not selling chicken satay only, but they also sell mutton satay which was tasted sooooo good :).

From the beginning of my posting, I kept saying "this type/style of chicken satay", what kind of type?? I am talking about chicken satay with peanut sauce, which you can find the taste more in the peanut sauce than the satay itself. The chicken was barely tasty. You can find it tangy tho. That's why you should eat it with the sauce.

Since it is hard to find this kind of indo chicken satay here, so I made it by myself, and I am satisfied enough with the taste :). My hubby is also like it, and he proved it by ate 3/4 portion, and left me 1/4 portion only :).

Sate Ayam Bumbu Kacang (Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce)

Salt and pepper to taste

Marinate chicken with marinade sauce for 2 hour or more. Weave the chicken onto skewers. Grill it for about 10 minutes or more until both sides are cooked through.
