Celebrating is about sharing, telling stories, talking. It's about eating a piece of cake that a friend made for you, having a glass of wine or savoring a cup of coffee. It's that unknown sensation that doesn't let you get up from the table after eating. It's much more than just placing silverware and plates on a table, it's creating an ambience, a style, a sensation, an unforgettable memory.

Coconut and peanut butter sauce for the chicken satay

A chicken satay with coconut milk and peanut butter sauce, this one of my family's favorites. Everybody loves them at home. It's great for entertaining. The sauce it's completely delicious. Your friends will be satisfied. If they are vegetarian just serve the sauce with grilled veggies and rice.

The idea is to bring some far away sparkle into the home. Those tastes become friendly and we get totally used to making them on our own. 

For the chicken marinate: 
In a bowl combined all.
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup lemon juice
6 garlic cloves minced
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1 tablespoon brown sugar

For the chicken I usually make about 6 to 8 chicken breast, I cut it into strips with a kitchen scissors. Marinated, leave it for about an hour in the refrigerator.
You could do it the night before  for a more intense flavor and cooked the following day on the grill.

For the sauce:
In a saucepan add the following ingredients and cook over low to medium, stirring constantly until sauce its thick and creamy.

11/2 cup of coconut milk
1 cup of peanut butter
1/ 4 cup lemon juice freshly squeezed
2 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger root
6 garlic cloves minced

I serve them with jasmine rice, a topping of sliced  fresh coconut roasted and a salad with mango, cucumber, red pepper, scallions, cilantro and toasted peanuts. which I will post soon...

Soak the bamboo skewered for about 20 minutes in a  bowl of cold water to keep them from burning  while you are grilling.

I have tried something similar for the marinade and it does give chicken an awesome flavor. However, what really stands out is the unique sauce you have put together-very impressive. This recipe is a keeper!
