Servings 4 pp


  • 12 units chicken wings
  • 1 stick lemongrass
  • 4 cm fresh ginger root (1.5 inch)
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 unit lime
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 150 mL coconut cream (10 tablespoons)
  • 0.5 tsp cumin grounded
  • 0.5 tsp curcuma grounded
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro / coriander
  • salt & pepper


Prepare the marinade

  • Trim and separate the chicken wings.
  • Take off the first hard skin of the lemongrass stick. Smash a little bit the stick and then cut into small pieces.
  • Peel and grate the ginger and the garlic.
  • Zest the lime using a fine grater and squeeze the juice.
  • In a food processor bowl, add the lemongrass, ginger, garlic, lime juice and zest.
  • Add the peanut butter, the coconut cream, the spices and salt and pepper.
  • Mix well until you get a smooth paste.
  • Pour the marinade on the chicken wings and leave to rest in the fridge for about 12 hours.

Cooking the wings

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius (about 400 farenheit)
  • On a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, put the wings on a single layer. At this stage the satay sauce should be quite thick and coating the wings.
  • Cook the wings for about 20-25 minutes until cooked turning the wings after 10 minutes.
  • As always cooking time can differ depending on your oven so make sure to control the process. Your wings are ready when they are slightly golden brown.
  • Cut the coriander into small pieces and sprinkle over the satay chicken wings. It's ready !


Coconut cream is more concentrated than coconut milk so make sure to get the cream in your favorite Asian store and not the milk!
Tip: you can put the chicken wings and the satay marinade in a freezing bag and then place the bag in the fridge. Doing it this way the marinade will coat perfectly all the wings.
