4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 2cm (3/4 in) pieces
Chopped flat-leaf parsley and coarsely chopped peanuts, to garnish
90 ml (3 fl oz) dark soy sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp sunflower oil
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, crushed
3 spring onions, thinly sliced
250 g peanut butter
2 garlic cloves, crushed
175 ml (6 fl oz) water
30 g (1 oz) creamed coconut, coarsely chopped
1 tbsp dark soy sauce
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 cm (1/2 in) piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and grated
1 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and black pepper
Make the marinade: in a bowl, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, sugar, garlic and spring onions.
Toss the chicken in the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, soak skewers in warm water for 30 minutes.
Make the satay sauce: heat the peanut butter with half of the garlic for 2 minutes. Add the water, creamed coconut, soy sauce, sugar, and ginger, and cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes or until the sauce is smooth.
Add the lemon juice and remaining garlic and season with cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. Keep warm.
Thread the chicken pieces on to the skewers. Place under a hot grill, 10cm (4 in) from the heat, and grill for 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through.
Serve the chicken satay at once, garnishing the sauce with chopped parsley and peanuts.
