Ingredients Breakdown

For the marinade…

  • 2 garlic cloves
  • small piece of ginger
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 1 tbsp medium curry powder
  • 5 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 fresh red chilli

Next step… 

  • 4 chicken breast fillets
  • 165ml can coconut milk
  • ½ shallot
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

Method

Blitz all your marinade ingredients until almost smooth, loosening with a few splashes of water, if needed, then taste and season to perfection.

Cut each chicken breast into equal strips and toss with half the satay sauce. Marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight.

Thread your chicken onto skewers. Pop a pan on a medium-high heat with a tablespoon of oil. Cook your chicken through, turning regularly to get an even, golden crunch on the outside. Dependant upon how thick you’ve cut your chicken strips, it may take 10-15 minutes to cook through.

Chuck your finely chopped onion into a pan with the remaining satay sauce and the coconut milk. Simmer until thickened (5-6 minutes) and serve in a dipping bowl.

Enjoy! x
