Yum .. everyone loved it! Doubled up on the quantity of chicken and marinade, but only made the suggested amount of satay sauce - and that was more than plenty!

I could not find chicken fillets and so I flattened a chicken breast and then cut it into strips. This made the chicken very tender and was easy to feed onto a wooden skewer. I did not freeze the chicken which could only have helped and it was excellent. However the "satay sauce" was sickly sweet and nothing like the real thing. Given how expensive a tin of coconut milk can be, if you don't have plans to use it up, you are better off buying a jar of decent satay sauce. This one was horrid.

Delicious and so easy! Be careful on the measurements on the sauce, i found we had far too much - although it was delicious!

My husband took one bite and said "when can we have this again?". I am usually quite critical about my own cooking but even I couldn't stop raving about this one!
Easy, oh so tasty and didn't take long. I did it as a main course as my hubby loves satay and I am so glad I did as we couldn't get enough.
Wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

This was excellent! Everyone at the party loved it, and it was so easy to make. It also looked very nice on the skewers.
I used chunky peanut butter in the satay dip.
