It is officially PARTY SEASON! This next month is all about food, drinks, friends, family, and PARTIES. Bring it on!
Every party needs a delicious appetizer, and I've got just the thing for you. These skewers are everyone's favorite chicken satay. They're easy to make and delicious and will make you the star of every party you bring them to.
You're going to start by marinating some chicken thighs (the tastiest and juiciest part of the chicken) in a simple Thai marinade. Then, you're going to skewer a little Christmas-colored red pepper and a piece of chicken and pop them into your oven.
While they're baking, you'll whip up a quick satay sauce.
Make sure you make lots, they won't last long!
