Chicken Satay with Peanut Dipping Sauce

When the client asks for something you have never made and you say yes presuming it’s easy, you are in for a challenge.

I presumed Satay Chicken would be easy but when I experimented with flavours both of the chicken marinade and the peanut dipping sauce, I struggled till I finally got a version I liked. And when the client liked it too, I thought it deserved a spot on the blog.
