I need you all to know that I LOVE chicken satay. If its on a menu, I have to order it. There is a something so good about the juicy chicken thighs in that peanut sauce that makes me and my belly so happy. Unfortunately, peanuts are a legume and as it turns out, legumes aren’t great for my autoimmune disease. I came up with this almond butter chicken satay recipe so that I could enjoy all of the flavors of a peanut satay without any of the inflammation pain!!

To make this delicious almond butter chicken satay you will need some skewers. I like these little ones when I am cooking inside. About an hour or so before you are ready to cook you will want to soak your skewers in water and start marinating your meat. I soak my skewers in water before I start cooking because they are wood and might catch on fire on the stove, but that is less likely if they are soaked prior to use! Use boneless skinless chicken breasts and cube them into bite size pieces. Then marinate the chicken in almond butter, coconut aminos, sesame oil, sriracha, lime juice and fish sauce. If you are looking to make this whole30 compliant, be sure that your sriracha and almond butter don’t have any added sugars. The two that I linked are compliant.

Allow the chicken to marinate for at least an hour, but can be more if you want to prep ahead of time. Slide the marinated pieces on skewers and add to an oiled grill pan over medium heat. Save the excess marinade. Grill for about 12 minutes flipping every 2 minutes and basting with the extra marinade. Serve with sauteed veggies and cauliflower rice or with a dip at a party!
