Sate Ponorogo – Chicken Satay Ponorogo

Chicken Satay Ponorogo
Sate Ponorogo is a variant of satay originating in Ponorogo, a town in East Java. It is made from sliced marinated chicken, served with a sauce made of peanuts and chilli sauce and garnished with shredded shallots, sambal, and lime juice. This variant is unique for the fact that each skewer contains one large piece of chicken, rather than several small cubes. The meat is marinated in spices and sweet soy sauce, in a process called “bacem” and is served with rice or lontong (rice cake).
