Satays are the ideal BBQ food. You can eat single-handed while holding a drink in the other! To make the best satays is simple. Marinade, marinade, marinade! To make these chicken satays memorable, marinate the meat in a Ziploc bag overnight and prepare the skewers the next day. Use the commercially available satay sauce you can buy in the local supermarkets. A lot easier!
