Tis the season for cocktail parties! We’re always looking for a simple, yet delicious appetizer recipe and this has become our Favorite Chicken Satay Recipe. What’s not to love about a savory and a bit spicy appetizer that you can eat on a stick? We teamed up with got milk? today to share not only our favorite chicken satay recipe, but also two fun ideas for milk mocktails that go perfectly with the flavors and spice of this chicken satay. Mango milk lassis and honey cardamom milk both are big hits with these skewers. The sweetness of the mango pairs so well with the deep flavors of the satay, and of course the color of the mango is just beautiful. There’s a reason we love it. Serve the lassis in some gorgeous drink ware and your guests are ready to eat and drink in style.
