Preheat your grill to hot, place the skewers of chicken on a wire rack over a flat baking sheet, brush liberally with the marinade and grill turning frequently for about 10-12 minutes or until cooked through.

Step 6

In a small non-stick pan on a low heat very gently warm through the satay sauce. [IMPORTANT] If you have the pan too hot this sauce will burn!

Step 7

Serve on a small platter, pour over a little of the sauce and place the remaining sauce in a warm bowl for dipping.
