Chicken Satay with Thai Cucumber Relish

ThaiCucumberRelish

Chicken Satay is thin strips of chicken dry rubbed or wet marinated, skewered on sticks, and grilled. I marinated these with Guy Fieri’s Teriyaki sauce. I also made a Thai cucumber relish that you see paired with Chicken Satay in a lot of Thai restaurants. I served this with basic fried rice for a nice asian inspired meal.
