  1. Whisk together all of the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl.
  2. Cut the chicken thighs into strips and put them in a zip top freezer bag.

  4. Preheat your grill to medium high heat and brush the grates with oil.
  5. Thread the chicken strips onto metal or wooden skewers. If using wooden skewers be sure to soak them in water for at least 3-4 hours.
  6. Place the chicken skewers on the prepared grill and grill them for approximately 3-4 minutes, then flip and grill another 3-4 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
  7. In a small saucepan whisk together all of the ingredients for the almond butter sauce.
  8. Bring the sauce to a boil then lower the heat to medium low and simmer for 1-2 minutes or until the sauce thickens. If you prefer a runnier sauce add a little more water or coconut milk.
  9. Garnish the grilled chicken satay with chopped cilantro and almonds and serve with the almond butter sauce.
