AirBBQ Chicken Satay

By 19:54:00 , , , , , , , , , ,

Satay is one of the most popular street food in Malaysia and it is one my favorite street food (a.k.a. pasar malam must-haves). If you have never had the pleasure of tasting satay, you don't know what you are missing!

Satay is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat that you can practically find in every corner you pass - roadside satay stalls, hawker centers, kopitiam, pasar malam and even high-end restaurant!

I love eating satay but my hubby is not a big fan of satay because he often complained the meat is too sweet (even without dipping the sweet peanut sauce)! I'm really glad that now I can prepare my own homemade satay and AirBBQ to perfection (without having to set up the BBQ pit).
AirBBQ Chicken Satay

500gm Chicken Fillet (or any chicken part - boneless & skinless)
1 stalk Lemongrass (use white part only)
3 Shallots (peeled)
3 cloves Garlic (peeled)
1/2 tsp Salt
3 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Ground Coriander
1 tsp Ground Turmeric
1/2 tsp Ground Cumin
2 tsp Olive Oil (or cooking oil)

For Basting:
1 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Vegetable Oil


  • Cut the chicken into small cubes or long strips.
  • Pound or blend together the lemongrass, shallots and garlic.
  • Add salt, sugar, oil and spices into the pounded/blended paste and mix it well.
  • Marinate the chicken pieces with the spice paste and let it sit for at least 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.
  • Preheat the Airfryer at 190°C for 5 minutes.
  • Thread the chicken pieces on the skewers (Philips Airfryer accessories) and brush satay with honey and oil mixture.
  • Place the skewers on the skewer rack (Philips Airfryer accessories) and AirBBQ for 10-12 minutes.
