I didn’t come up with this Chicken Satay recipe, nor was it “inspired by” another and then modified by me. It’s straight from Chef Tyler Florence‘s Food Network show Food 911. And it’s pretty good so I figured I’d share it.

Your house might not erupt in flames, but you will have to contend with that smell of burnt wood.
Serve it over coconut jasmine rice. Which is made the same way as regular jasmine rice, but with coconut milk (the canned kind, not the one in the non-dairy milk aisle) instead of water. Add some veggies to make it a complete meal.
