QUICK TIP

Satay is an Indonesian style of grilling meat, fish, or poultry. The item is cut into thin strips, marinated, and then threaded onto a skewer before grilling.

After handling raw poultry, always wash hands and contact surfaces thoroughly. Completely cook chicken through until internal temperature reaches a minimum of 165°F.
