"Not only is New York City the nation's melting pot, it is also the casserole, the chafing dish and the charcoal grill." -John Lindsay, Mayor

The refrigerator light goes on...

Classic satays are generally super spicy often made with white pepper, cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes. The finely minced ginger in this version offers a super aromatic flavor without the burn and may be much better tolerated by those with acid reflux.

This peanut sauce is a classic Thai flavor. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of variations, but this spin on satay with the cilantro is really delicious. It gives it a fresh, light flavor. The peanut sauce with the addition of cilantro is rich but soft and light enough for those with acid reflux.

Place the chicken strips onto skewers.  Each serving should be one 4 ounce skewer.

Place the minced ginger, sesame oil and chicken together in a medium mixing bowl.

Fold together and cover the bowl.

Marinate for at least 4 hours (overnight is best).

While the chicken is marinating place the peanut butter, chicken stock, soy sauce and cilantro in a blender.

Puree until smooth.  Chill.

When ready to cook place a large grill pan or skillet over high heat.

When the pan is hot reduce the heat to medium high and spray with olive oil.

Place the marinated chicken on the grill pan and cook for about 5 minutes.

Turn and cook for another 7 to 12 minutes.

Serve with peanut sauce.
