Chicken Satay

There is nothing quite like a creamy peanut sauce with a hint of lime and spice. I love dunking perfectly cooked chicken skewers into this rich sauce and you can bang it out in 10 minutes!


5 ounces Chicken Breast, cubed

1 tsp chicken stock powder

pinch of salt

Peanut Sauce

3 Tbsp Ginger

4 Tbsp Onion

2 Tbsp Garlic

1 Tbsp chilli sauce or sambal oelek sauce

3 Tbsp Sweet Soya Sauce

2 Tbsp Dark Soya Sauce

1/2 cup of Coconut milk

3 Tbsp Natural Peanut butter

1 Tbsp lime juice


  1. Place the cubed chicken on skewers (note skewers should fit into the pan you will use to cook the chicken) 
  2. Season with chicken stock powder and a sprinkle of salt
  3. Add olive oil to a pan and place chicken down to cook over medium heat.
  4. When chicken is cooked on one side, remove the excess oil, flip the skewers, add a splash of water and cover to let steam and finish cooking with the stove top off.
  5. Prepare the peanut sauce
  6. Peel the ginger (I like to use a spoon) and chop the ginger into a small dice.
  7. Dice the onion and garlic.
  8. Add oil to a small pan or pot and sautée the garlic, ginger and onion until soft.
  9. Add sweet and dark soya sauce, chilli sauce, coconut milk and peanut butter and stir to combine.  Lower the heat.
  10. Add lime juice.
  11. Once chicken is cooked, plate with sauce, a squeeze of fresh lime, cilantro and top with peanuts.
