Start by soaking the wooden skewers in water up until you are ready to make the kebabs. Pre heat your grill on high.
In a medium saute pan combine the first 5 ingredients listed for the Satay sauce. Heat over medium heat and begin to whisk. Once the liquid begins to boil combine the cornstarch and water in a small bowl and whisk it into the sauce. It should begin to thicken immediately.
If the sauce is not thick enough feel free to add another tablespoon of corn starch mixture also known as a slurry. Season to taste with salt and take it off of the heat. Reserve.
When your grill is hot; using a pair of tongs and a paper towel, carefully wipe the surface of the grill with 1 tablespoon of Canola Oil. Use the other tablespoon of oil to coat the cubes of chicken.
Season the chicken liberally with salt and begin to skewer about 4 pieces on each skewer.
Lay them on the grill and cook for 3 minutes on each side flipping them halfway through. Turn the grill down and set the skewers away from direct heat. Continue to cook the chicken for at least an additional 8 minutes. Cook until the chicken is firm and the juices run clear.
