    This is a great recipe, although it is a bit time consuming. Of course I find most Thai dishes to be time consuming. Cooking goes quickly but the prep time can be long! I’m looking forward to enjoying this for dinner tomorrow night!

    Love this recipe — we used to enjoy chicken satay at a little Thai restaurant in our neighborhood in New York City (it closed years ago) and this is the closest to it that I have ever found. Thank you!

  2. Hi Kim! I have found tahini at Albertsons and Smith’s (with the Asian foods) and at the health food store, but the last time I bought tahini I bought online and saved a little money.
