I wanted to mix things up a little over the weekend, and make something that the kids will enjoy. Well, adults included too. The girls really enjoy eating my Thai Sate Chicken and my Baked Hand Cut Fries. So I thought, why not make a satay burger, complete with an easy spicy peanut sauce, and some homemade baked fries. Yum!
Come to think of it… Perhaps for my next satay burger, I will marinade whole boneless chicken thighs and grill it as it is. That way it saves me the trouble of making patties!
