Easy Thai Chicken Satay Recipe- Somewhat Simple

Do you love Thai food? Many Thai dishes are actually very simple to make at home and they don’t need a lot of unusual ingredients. Today I’m sharing with you my all-time-favorite Thai dish- Thai Chicken Satay. It’s easy to make and super delicious!Thai Chicken Satay

I find that it is easiest to chop all my vegetables before starting to cook anything. That way, they are ready to go in the pan all at once, and everything cooks evenly. This recipe also calls for peanut butter, and it is your choice whether or not to use chunky or smooth. I love the chunky peanut butter, because it gives the dish an interesting crunchy texture. You can also make this dish spicy if you like by adding red pepper flakes to the sauce.
