Angie, Big Bear's Wife, is having had a baby. And Terri of Love and Confections is throwing her a virtual baby shower. We were all set to post for a pre-baby event. Turns out that he had other ideas. Her new little Baby Bear arrived earlier this week!


Please take some time to check out all the amazing recipes we made for Angie's virtual baby shower!

In real life, Angie had a Dumbo-themed baby shower. So, my mind went: Dumbo, elephant, peanuts, peanut butter. Yep. I knew I wanted to make a savory dish with peanut butter sauce!

Chicken Satay Skewers 
with Peanut Butter Sauce

Ingredients
Marinade
  • juice and zest from 1 organic lemon (I used a Meyer lemon)
  • 2 T garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1/2 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 pounds chicken (I used boneless and skinless strips of chicken breast)
  • Also needed: skewers and grill or grill pan

Satay Sauce
  • juice and zest from 1 organic lemon
  • 2 T peanut butter
  • 2 T ground almonds
  • 1/2 C coconut milk
  • splash of soy sauce to taste
  • 1 T raw honey + more as needed


Procedure
Marinade
Whisk together the marinade ingredients. Place chicken in a lidded container. Pour marinade over the top. Let the meat marinate overnight in the fridge.

While the grill heats up, soak the skewers in cold water for, at least, 10 minutes. Thread strips of meat onto each skewer and place on the grill. Cook for a few minutes on each side until cooked golden. 

Satay Sauce
Combine all the satay sauce ingredients with just enough soy sauce to season. Add a little honey to sweeten, if necessary. Simmer gently for five minutes.


Serve with the hot satay sauce for dipping.
