  • If the satay sauce becomes too thick as you cook, add in a splash of water or chicken broth.
  • For extra flavour, try brushing some of the sauce onto the drumsticks and heating them briefly in your microwave oven.
  • If you want a more traditional-tasting Malaysian Satay chicken, try our Poulet Oven-Roasted Satay Breast Fillet.


  1. Prepare and measure the ingredients.
  2. In a bowl, mix the peanut butter, curry powder, soy sauce, honey and lime juice until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a saucepan over low heat, sauté the garlic and ginger in the sesame oil for half a minute or until aromatic.
  4. Pour the coconut milk into the saucepan. Add the peanut butter mixture as well.
  5. Heat the whole mixture gently for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly until the coconut milk is warmed up and the satay sauce comes together. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Open the packs of Pioneer Poultry Smoked Chicken Drumsticks. If the chicken is cold, warm them in your microwave or oven as you wish. (Do not overheat or overcook.)
  7. Serve the chicken with the satay dipping sauce on the side and some steamed rice. (Top with the cilantro, if desired.)
