Chicken Satay Sandwich with Peanut Sauce and Cucumber-Onion-Pepper Relish

chicken satay recipe
This is just a simple sandwich in which all components of a typical satay meal served in Thailand, i.e. bread, grilled marinated meat, peanut sauce, and cucumber-onion relish, are represented. (Added October 3rd, 2012: Perhaps this is where I should invite you to read my post on how to eat satay before proceeding.)

Although the kind of bread served as part of a satay set in Thailand is always soft, white, and grilled, in this case we need the kind of bread that’s strong enough to hold all the fillings and the sauce. Ciabatta rolls work quite well. They can be toasted or not, depending on what you like.

Chicken breasts are marinated in the same way as the shrimp in my shrimp satay recipe post. The peanut sauce is courtesy of Mom; you can find the recipe in my post on easy Thai peanut sauce.

All you have to do is to marinate the chicken, grill it, slice it, and set it aside. Arrange the ajat or cucumber-onion relish on a split roll. Place the chicken slices on the ajat. Drizzle some peanut sauce on top. Close the sandwich. Enjoy.

    unfortuante that link to peanut sauce does not work, nor does attempting to go directly to peanut sauce recipe page. Frustrated – really wanted to do this tonight!

    My husband and I were just discussing how good a satay sandwich would be over the weekend! I’m pretty excited that I found your blog yesterday. I made the chicken satay and peanut sauce last night, and our budget and bellies are equally happy with the homemade version 😉
