  1. Up to a day ahead, cut the chicken breasts into 36 thin strips and put them into a bowl with the soy sauce, chilli sauce, garlic, oil and sugar. Mix together until the chicken is coated, then thread each strip on to a bamboo skewer. Get the skewers lined up on a baking tray and keep covered in the fridge until ready to cook.

  2. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5/fan 170C. Put the tray in the hottest part of the oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, warm the satay sauce in a pan, then spoon a little into each of 12 shot glasses or small tumblers.

  3. When the chicken is done, remove the tray from the oven and squeeze the lime juice over the chicken. Pop 3 skewers in each shot glass and a slice of lime on to each rim. Serve warm or cold – they’re nice either way.

I'm sure these would be nice but don't think you could ever class satay as Spanish!

I made these for a party and they were very popular! I may put them on my George Foreman grill next time as they dried out a bit in the oven. Does anyone have a satay sauce recipe I can make from scratch as I didn't really like the store bought jar I got? Thanks!

I get moaned at if i don't provide these when i have a bbq! My 7 year old niece loves them so I had to give my sister the recipe. I usually use a couple of fresh red chillies.

Recipe state Chilli sauce,but the ingredient listed Very lazy chillies, this could confuse a novice cook. Also there should be an approximation of cooking time for the chicken. However that said the satay was great.
