Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Satay (Gai Satay)

2 lb. boneless chicken breast
1 tsp. whole coriander seeds
1 tsp. whole cumin seeds
1 tsp. ground turmeric
2 tbsp. shallots, peeled and sliced thin crosswise
3 tbsp. lemon grass, sliced thin crosswise
1 tbsp. galangal, 1/4 in piece
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. sugar

  5. Add chicken pieces to the marinade and mix well to cover meat. Allow to marinate for at least an hour or up to overnight.

  6. Before cooking, soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 10 minutes, so that they will not burn.
