Delicious chicken tenders, conveniently on skewers for some easy dipping action and then an amazing satay dip all perfectly paired with a beautiful wine - a recipe to put a little cluck in your day!

  • 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.

  • Serve the skewer immediately with the Satay dipping sauce and enjoy with a glass of Amourette Chardonnay.

Chef Tommy's Tips

Don't feel like grilling? No problem! This recipe can just as easily be baked.

  • Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cube the chicken and make the sauce just the same as the recipe calls for, except for the corn starch and water.
  • Combine the raw chicken with the sauce and place in a baking dish.
  • Cover with tin foil and bake for around 30 minutes.
  • Take the dish out of the oven and let it cool.
  • Remove the chicken with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  • Pour the remaining sauce into a large saute pan.
  • Heat over medium heat. When it begins to boil whisk in the cornstarch and water mixture.
  • Add the chicken to the pan with the sauce and toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately!

Amourette Chardonnay

Amourette Chardonnay

A Montrachet style wine with soft pear nose, wonderful mineral in the center palate and a touch of butterscotch on the finish.
