Thai Pineapple Peanut Satay Chicken
This is a moist dish that does not require a lot of time to prepare. You do need to set aside marinade time though 3-4 hours.
Pour all the ingredient for the marinade in a large freezer bag, mix well. Add the chopped bite size pieces of chicken. Let marinade for 3-4 hours in refrigerator.
Add the coconut milk and cornstarch to small sauce pan. Using wisk blend well. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Doesn't take long before thick and warm enough to serve. 3-4 minutes.
For the pineapple grill or broil the slices and serve with the chicken. Takes about 5 minutes.
You can either grill this or broil. I broiled. Assemble skewers by adding the chicken about 6-8 pieces to each. (If using wooden skewers soak for 30 minutes prior)
Grill on one side and then turn slightly.
For broil, preheat oven. Line a baking sheet with cooking spray. Cook for 5 minutes and then turn, takes 10-15 minutes.
Three Doors Down is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland. This place has had a lot of food firsts for me. The first time I tried a scallop was several years ago with a peach sauce, it was buttery and one of the most delicious dishes I have tried.
Everything I have tried has been delicious. We got the burrata, tomato, basil bruschetta which was like a bite of heaven. They have a wide variety of options for main dishes including pasta options. I tend to gravitate towards their cocoa-coffee pork dish because I like their potatoes.
Full menu, terrific hosts, and a must try if you are wanting to have an intimate dinner.
