Easy Peanut Satay Chicken Kebabs Recipe! Great Freezer Meal!
I love how simple and easy it is to make these peanut satay chicken kebabs! The unique combination of common ingredients gives the chicken a mellow, comforting flavor. Orange, soy, ginger, and peanut butter all meld together in this fantastic grilled chicken recipe.
I have served this grilled chicken to several people and they have all loved it! I will definitely be making it again soon and I am glad that I still have a bag of it in my freezer.
Not many ingredients are needed for this recipe and they are all pretty common and easy to find at your local grocery store. You probably already have many of the ingredients on hand: chicken thighs, chunky peanut butter, orange juice concentrate, soy sauce, fresh ginger, orange zest, hot sauce (don’t worry, they really aren’t spicy), and green onions. Find coupons.
Chicken thigh meat does not dry out easily while cooking, which makes it especially nice for grilling. However, they are not as neat and tidy for slicing like chicken breast meat. It took me quite a while to slice up all of that meat, of course, I did make 6 freezer meal bags, which is 12 pounds of chicken. Whew.
The sauce only takes few minutes to whip together though! Tip: To help keep your freezer meal bags upright, stand them up together in a large bowl. It makes it easier to portion the ingredients among the bags and keep food from spilling out.
Here are some of my peanut satay chicken freezer meals; all ready to be flattened out, sealed up, and thrown in the freezer. Hooray!
The threading onto skewers gets a little messy, but it is worth it. You will probably be able to fit 5-7 strips of chicken on each skewer. Try to keep the skewered meat around the same thickness throughout so it cooks more evenly.
For a nice presentation, serve the skewers over a bed of rice and sprinkle with chopped green onions. Yum!
