Grilled Chicken Satay

I remember being a kid and eating this stuff. To this day, Chicken Satay is very probably one of my favorite things to eat. Maybe it's the chicken, but MAYBE it's the peanut sauce! As a kid, our local restaurant always served it with peanut sauce and a sweet-spicy cucumber salad. The chicken skewers were always resting upon a slice of white toast, which had been cut into 9 squares, each square absorbing the bright yellow grease dripping from the satays. This was my favorite part. And the chicken.

Oh, and the peanut sauce was my favorite!
