There is peanut chicken satay and then there is the BEST Thai Pineapple Peanut Chicken Satay! One sauce, tons of flavor, can be grilled or oven broiled, so you can love this explosion of flavor all year round.
You might have noticed I have a thing for peanut sauce – from my Thai Peanut Chicken Tacos to my Thai Sticky Orange Peanut Chicken Skillet to my Thai Peanut Beef and Broccoli. Okay, not just a thing. Thai peanut sauce and all its variations is one of my favorite foods IN-THE-WORLD. I actually have to pace myself from sharing some Thai Peanut recipe variation too often because I could eat it every day. I think its been long enough. Its time for Thai Pineapple Peanut Chicken Satay made with pineapple juice!
I’ve never wanted to be done with pictures quicker in my life just so I could inhale these smothered marinated morsels.
The chicken is marinated in pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar and splashes of lime juice, fish sauce, sriracha, basil, garlic and ginger – mmmmm….can you taste it now?! You reserve most of this marinade to become your sauce/dip that you simmer and stir in peanut butter and then slather all over your chicken and pineapple. You can even thin the sauce and pour it over the chicken, pineapple and rice. So not only is this chicken ridiculously delicious, its ridiculously easy! One sauce, tons of flavor!
Now lets not forget the pineapple. The pineapple caramelizes as it grills, enhancing its natural sweetness, perfectly complimenting the nutty multidimensional peanut sauce.
So if you love peanut sauce just a fraction of what I do, you are gong to fall in love with these Thai Pineapple Peanut Chicken Satay. And its good to be in love.
