chicken chilli coconut dairy free ginger gluten free meals recipes satay turmeric Feb 07, 2018

Who doesn't love satay sauce? You can put it on any kind of Asian dish (or any dish in general!) and that meal will suddenly taste amazing. I think my satay sauce is the bees knees and what is awesome about this recipe is that it is so great for families - and the feedback I have received definitely confirms this. You can substitute any other kind of nut butter or even tahini for the peanut butter, but personally, I think the peanut butter is what makes it :P I usually use the Mayvers Peanut Butter.   

Serves 4


8 x chicken thighs, cut into 3cm chunks
8 x bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30minutes
1 shallot, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon ginger, grated
1 small red chilli, diced
1 teaspoon turmeric, grated
¼ cup peanut butter
½ cup carton coconut milk
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon tamari
1 tablespoon maple syrup

Salad: cos lettuce, sliced cucumber, shredded snowpeas, grated carrot, chopped spring onion, toasted coconut, coriander.

Dressing: Juice of 1 lime, 1 teaspoon fish sauce, 1 teaspoon maple syrup.


Combine the ingredients for the salad and prepare the dressing. Thread the chicken onto the skewers. Preheat a grill and grill the chicken 4-5minutes each side or until cooked through. Meanwhile, heat a small saucepan on low-medium heat with ½ teaspoon coconut oil and add the shallot for 2-3minutes. Then add the garlic, ginger, chilli and turmeric for 1 minute. Take off the heat and stir in the peanut butter. Add the coconut milk, rice wine vinegar, tamari and maple syrup and then place on low heat and stir until it thickens. 

Dress the salad and serve with the skewers and satay sauce.
