This delicious chicken satay can be made, from start to finish, in just 20 minutes, and is chockfull of flavor in spite of a short ingredient list. Simply thread strips of chicken that's been tossed with teriyaki sauce onto wooden skewers, then roast in the oven alongside asparagus spears that have been brushed with soy sauce and canola oil. It's a one-pan wonder that hits all the right savory profiles. You can opt to serve the satay over a bed of hot brown basmati rice or wild rice, or a combination of rices, to make this feel like a more complete meal.
