Satay Ayum

This dish was the first part of a meal prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "Indonesian". Before this weeks theme I have never even thought of Indonesian food. I have been living under a rock! This was delicious. Plus how can you go wrong with peanut sauce. It seems like everything these days come with peanut sauce and I am completely ok with this. Plus with how easy this was, I would definitely make this again or at least try with a different meat.
