Make this delicious chicken satay marinated in a green curry marinade and grilled to perfection.
This recipe is great anytime of year, but especially during those warmer months where you just want to grill! It can also be made on the stovetop.
This was inspired by my Thai chicken thighs on this site, and pairs well with this easy peanut sauce.
