    Did this with chicken thighs at a BBQ for our friends. All disappeared very quickly which says it all!  -  12 Sep 2013


    Mega delicious, it reminds me very much of original satays from Bangkok-sweet and sour. I used chicken skinless legs instead of breast as it is more moist and still delicious.  -  02 Jul 2017
