My Mom bought Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook "Double Delicious". After looking through it and seeing many recipes I'd like to try, I decided to start off with Chicken Satay. This recipe called for sweet potato puree to be added to the sauce. I decided to do a whole batch of sweet potato puree to freeze for future recipes since I was going to all the trouble. This recipe is Thai inspired-a peanutty dipping sauce to serve with the chicken skewers. We all loved it, except youngest DS who didn't care for the dipping sauce, only the chicken, which he dipped in ranch dressing-of course We give this recipe an A, for both taste and easy to prepare. I served this chicken dish with Sauted' Cabbage (a Barefoot Contessa recipe). Yummy! CHICKEN SATAY INGREDIENTS
