Chicken Skewers serves with peanut butter satay sauce is probably one of my most favourite treats at Thai restaurants. I’m kind of drooling just thinking about it. So I thought, why not roast a whole chicken and serve it up with some homemade peanut butter sauce? Why not indeed.
Whole Chickens are usually pretty inexpensive compared to their butchered counterparts so this makes for a pretty thrifty family meal. You can feed your whole family of 4 for two nights in a row for the cost of a single plate at a thai restaurant. I’d say that is a win!
