Chicken is my go-to animal protein but it gets boring really quick, which is why I am excited that P.F. Chang’s® Home Menu Sauces is ready for marinading meat and vegetables. I used the P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Mongolian Style BBQ Sauce but other flavors like soy, teriyaki, kung pao, & sesame are available too. Satay is an Southeast Asian dish with of small pieces of meat grilled on a skewer and served typically with peanut sauce. Mongolian Chicken Satay is inspired by the same concept except that I took the BBQ routine and served satay with quick pickled vegetables.
Mongolian Chicken Satay can be served as an appetizer for a party or as a whole meal with your choice of sides, or even as a lettuce wrap! I love the fact that P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Sauces celebrates “Asian Cuisine made easy” so that you don’t have to have 17 ingredients to enjoy delicious, homemade meal.If you are interested in eating more at home or you are new to the world of cooking, pre-made marinades can be a life saver. For this recipe, because I literally just added cubed chicken in a bowl with P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Mongolian Style BBQ Sauce and the rest is history.
Mongolian Chicken Satay
Author: Dixya @Food, Pleasure, and Health Serves: 8 small skewers
3/4-1 cup P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Mongolian Style BBQ Sauce
2 large chicken breast, cubed
For pickled vegetables:
1 small carrot, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup sliced onion
2 Thai chili, chopped
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
pinch of salt
cooking spray or oil to grease the grill
In a large bowl, bowl combine P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Mongolian Style BBQ Sauce with cubed chicken and let it marinade for 30 minutes or so in the fridge.
Soak skewers in glass with water to prevent from burning.
In the meanwhile, make pickled vegetable or your choice of sides.
For pickled vegetable, pour water in a bowl and add sugar, salt and vinegar until it dissolves. Add the vegetables and let it sit in the fridge until ready. You can adjust the taste as needed but I like on the sweet-tangy side.
When ready, thread the chicken cubes (4-5 cubes per skewer) on a soaked wooden bamboo skewers. Use cooking spray or oil to lightly grease the baking sheet or rack then, place the satay on the baking sheet.
Turn the oven setting to broil and place the baking sheet in the oven 5 to 6 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and slightly golden. Rotate the chicken half way through on the other side for even cooking.
If grilling, place the skewers on the grill and cook until chicken is just cooked through, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes.
Serve with pickled vegetables or assemble it into a bowl.
Black beans and mango combined with fresh ingredients like tomatoes, onions, and cilantro makes a flavor pack salsa, high in protein and plant-forward. This is a versatile recipe that can be served with chips, enjoyed as a salad or as a side dish with grilled chicken or fish.
Earl Grey Truffles are decadent and has orange, bergamot notes from Earl Grey tea in every creamy bite. They will make a lovely gift for the holidays, for dinner parties, or simply enjoy it with a cup of tea. The recipe is vegan and dairy-free!
In Nepali language, sadeko roughly means marinated. Please don’t ask me why I am calling marinated chicken a salad..for lack of a better word maybe. While growing up in Nepal, I didn’t eat “fresh, green, leafy salad” like we do in the West, so I just associate “sadeko” or marinating anything with with spices and tempering… Continue reading Chicken Sadeko | Shredded Chicken Salad
