Ginger Chicken Satay

Well foodies this might be my last post for about 1-2 weeks, as I am pretty much packed and ready to move out of the hot apartment. Once I get moved in to the new home and get the kitchen in working order I will be able to start cooking again. Hopefully I will be newly inspired by my surroundings.

Due to the move I have been trying to clean our my freezer. I found these nice chicken fillets, perfect for making chicken satay. In my fridge I found ginger and fresh cilantro from my dad's garden (it smells so wonderful and energizing). I was inspired to make an Asian style chicken satays. The flavors of the ginger and cilantro really came through well. If you like it hot, add more cayenne. It was served with cucumbers and peanut sauce for dipping.

1 T minced ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
juice of one lime
1 T brown sugar
1/8 cup oil
1/2 T sesame oil
1 T chopped cilantro
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 lbs of chicken fillets

In a large bowl, whisk together ginger, garlic, lime juice, brown sugar, oil, sesame oil, cilantro and cayenne. Place chicken in a baggie and pour the marinade over the chicken. Seal the baggie and mix the marinade into the chicken. Place in the refridgerator for 1 hour.

Thread the chicken onto the pre-soaked bamboo skewers.

Preheat grill to med-high heat. Grill 4 to 6 minutes until chicken is done.
