Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

I've been having this huge craving for Chicken Satay for the last 2 weeks and finally i made it for myself today. Yippeeee!!!Thanks to my sudden cravings like these because of which, instead of heading to the restaurant, I end up trying to make it at home and therefore learn how to do it. It was quite nice for a first time home made satay. I will probably cut the chicken into strips and not cubes the next time. Hope you enjoy this satay too!

You will need:
Creamy Peanut Butter - 4 tbsp
Soya Sauce - 1/4 cup
Lemon Juice - 1/4 cup
Brown Sugar - 1 tbsp
Garam Masala - 1 tbsp
Garlic Cloves - 6 cloves
Boneless Chicken Breast - 6 cubed or cut into strips
Buttermilk - 1/4 cup

Make a smooth paste of all the ingredients and marinate the chicken in it for atleast 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Weave the chicken onto skewers and grill for 10 minutes on each side.
Serve with Peanut Sauce.

For The Peanut Sauce:
Roasted skinned Peanuts - 1 cup
Brown Sugar - 2 tbsp
Soya Sauce - 1 Tbsp
Fish Sauce - 2 Tbsp
Sesame Oil - 2 tsp
Water -1/3 cup
Garlic minced – 3
Lime Juice - 1 tbsp
Thai Chilli Sauce - 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Coconut Milk - 1/3 cup

Put all the above ingredients in a blender and make a smooth paste.
The sauce tends to thicken so add more coconut milk or water if you want a more runny dip.
