Chicken Satay is one of those dishes that is SO close to being gluten-free... but isn’t.
The soy sauce included in both marinade and dipping sauce renders restaurant satay inedible to most with gluten issues. It's such a small thing, yet ends up meaning that most restaurant-made satay is off limits.
So, if you’ve got to make it at home, best start with an amazing recipe! This is one of the recipes from Beyond Flour 2.
“The chicken stays nice, tender, and juicy from this marinade, and the dipping sauce is perfect for it - It compliments the chicken so well, and is amazing on its own - I feel like I could just take a spoon and eat it by itself. I could live on this.” - my husband’s view on it.
The sauce can be made ahead, or just as you're grilling the chicken. I like to serve the sauce hot, but it can also be served cool if you like - you’ll just want to thin it with a little extra chicken stock, as it thickens when cold.

|Interested in Gluten-free cooking and baking? You'll LOVE Beyond Flour: A Fresh Approach to Gluten-Free Cooking and Baking!
How many times have you come across a gluten-free recipe claiming to be “just as good as the normal version!”, only to wind up with weird textures, aftertastes, etc? Most gluten-free recipes are developed by taking a “normal” recipe, and swapping in a simulated “all purpose” gluten-free flour… whether store bought, or a homemade version. “Beyond Flour” takes a different approach: developing the recipe from scratch. Rather than swapping out the flour for an “all purpose” mix, I use various alternative flours as individual ingredients – skillfully blending flavours, textures, and other properties unique to each flour. Supporting ingredients and different techniques are also utilized to achieve the perfect end goal … not just a “reasonable facsimile”. Order your copy here.
