Chicken Satay

20160607_201027-1

Looking for something tasty to make mid week or maybe a ‘fakeaway’ for the weekend, well why not try this chicken satay.  Thanks to Jeeny over @mynutritionireland, check out their Instagram here,  for the recipe inspiration, it definitely gets the thumbs up from me.  No nasty additives and you can adjust the sauce to suit your own dietary needs.  Instead of using the peanut butter you could always use a powdered peanut butter like PB2 that you can get here to reduce the fat content and I also used the Alpro Coconut Cuisine instead of the tin of full fat coconut milk. I bought this in Tesco but I’m sure most supermarkets stock it.

Ingredients

350g Chicken Fillet, chopped into bite size pieces (or any protein source you choose, prawns, tofu etc).

1 Red Chilli, chopped finely (I like it hot!)

3 Cloves of Garlic, chopped finely

Freshly grated Ginger, roughly around 2 inches in size, depending on personal taste

1 Onion, chopped

1 Red & 1 Green Pepper, chopped

1-2 tsp Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Honey

1 Tbsp Curry Powder

1 Tbsp Liquid Aminos (or low sodium soy sauce)

1 Tbsp Nam Pla (Fish Sauce)

2 Tbsp Peanut Butter, I used the Meridian Brand

250ml Alpro Coconut Cuisine

1 Lime, I used the juice and the zest

For the noodles I used a courgette (zoodles), green beans, juice from 1/2 the lime and chilli flakes as it was a low carb day for me but  you could serve it with rice or wholegrain noodles or some basmati rice.

Method

Heat up the oil in a wok on a medium heat. Add the chicken, chilli, garlic, ginger, onions and peppers, stir fry for 5 -6 mins until the chicken is cooked.

Add the honey, curry powder, liquid aminos, fish sauce, peanut butter, alpro coconut cuisine and simmer for 15 – 20 mins.  Add some water if the sauce is too thick.

Just before serving add in the juice of 1/2 the lime and the lime zest.
