Description

Easy, Thai inspired Whole30 Cashew Chicken Satay Skewers with Chili Cashew Dipping Sauce is the perfect, non-boring recipe you need to make for dinner.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup cashew butter
  • 2 Tbsp. red chili paste
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 Tbsp. full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. coconut aminos (or soy sauce if not Whole30)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 lb. chicken tenderloins
  • about 8 wooden skewers, soaked
  • cilantro and extra lime for serving

Instructions

  1. Combine the cashew butter, red chili paste, pineapple juice, coconut milk, sesame oil, coconut aminos, lime juice, and salt in a bowl. Mix well.
  2. Pour half of the sauce into a large bowl or bag and add the chicken tenderloins. Coat them all evenly and allow this to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour to about 4 hours.
  3. Soak the skewers so they don’t burn.
  4. 30 minutes before grilling, allow the chicken to come to room temperature on the counter.
  5. Skewer the chicken and preheat the grill to medium heat.
  6. Grill for about 5-6 minutes per side before removing.
  7. Serve with cilantro and extra lime.

Notes

  • I use my homemade cashew butter which is pretty runny. If you’re using a thicker version, just add a bit more coconut milk, a tablespoon at a time.
  • if you’re not Whole30, peanut butter would be lovely here, too!
  • Fresh squeezed orange juice can be used in place of the pineapple juice.
