"If people take the trouble to cook, you should take the trouble to eat."
-Robert Morley, Playwright
This is, quite simply, as easy as it gets for a great meal. Mix marinade - 1 minute. Marinate chicken - gotta wait a bit. Mix peanut sauce - 1 minute. Cook rice - gotta wait a bit. Cook chicken - serve.
If you're feeling really adventurous, have the Thai Cucumber Salad with this. That'll take a whole five minutes to prep.
In the time that it takes to drive to the local Thai restaurant you can make dinner that's just as good and a whole lot better for you.

Serve with Coconut Rice
Serve with Thai Cucumber Salad
|1 Tbsp||curry powder|
|1/2 cup||light coconut milk|
|fresh ground black pepper (to taste)|
|1 lb||boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into 4 4-ounce strips)|
If using wooden skewers, place them in a large dish with water to soak so that they don't burn while cooking.
Place the sugar, salt, curry powder, coconut milk and pepper in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
Thread the chicken slices onto the skewers. Put the chicken in the bottom of a large enough dish to allow them to all lay flat (I used a rectangular Pyrex dish). Top with the satay marinade. Marinate for at least 30 minutes (overnight is best but a half hour or so will do). Place a non-stick griddle on the range over medium high heat. Spray lightly with oil and place the skewered chicken on the griddle.
Cook on each side about 8 - 10 minutes, until cooked through. After each turn of the chicken baste with a little of the remaining marinade.
Serve the chicken over Coconut Rice and top with Thai Peanut Sauce.
