Hi guys! Welcome back to my blog!

Chicken satay is a grilled chicken skewers marinated with spices and served with peanut sauce.
Today I'm sharing with you this Quick & Easy Chicken Satay Recipe!

It's easy to make and you can prepare,I mean marinate this one day before for even better results!
All over the internet you can find many variation of this chicken satay recipe, mine is a healthier version of it. For the recipe I used honey instead of sugar.

Along with it, I also decided bake some mix spiced veggies. I know this whole thing don't really make the right combination but because I already oned the oven thought why not roast some veggies to make it even a more filling meal.

I also made some peanut satay sauce which I think was ok. (my sister loved it... I can understand why she's a peanut butter lover!) If your not a big fun of peanut butter like myself I would suggest you to skip it and eat your chicken satay the way it is!
