Easy Family Chicken Satay Recipe
September 5, 2014
Has this ever happened to you (or am I a completely on my own with this one?) You wake up in the morning and know what you want (read: have to eat) for dinner. This happened to me last week. I woke up and really, really, really wanted to have Satay Chicken for dinner. We very rarely eat take away food, and with two young children we do not tend to go out to dinner – that translates to me coming up with a family friendly Chicken Satay recipe.
Since then we have had it for dinner a number of times and loved it each time. Did it satisfy the craving? Yes indeed it did! The kids loved this creamy, nutty meal. Add fresh chilli for the adults if you wish to add some zing.
I have made this recipe using various cuts of chicken and also with two different types of peanut butter. We enjoyed it the most when I made it using diced chicken breast. It is still good with cheaper cuts such as drumsticks, but not as good. The peanut butter that you choose to use is another story – it will make or break the final result. This recipe, as with any recipe, tastes best with high quality ingredients. You can easily make your own peanut butter using unsalted peanuts and processing them until they form a rough paste in a food processor. Note: you will require a machine that is at least 850 Watts to make peanut butter. This is my easy family chicken satay recipe:
Use good quality, chunky peanut butter.
Tamari is a wheat-free soy sauce.It is naturally brewed in the traditional Japanese way from whole organic soy beans. You can find it in the health food section of your supermarket or good delis and grocers.
What food craving have you had that sent you into the kitchen to make it? What was it that you craved?
