Peanut satay reminds me Thai/Indonesian food. With a rich taste and textured flavour, it goes well with BBQ’d chicken skewers or any chicken dish as a matter of fact! Remember to soak wooden skewers overnight so they don’t burn.
- 300g chicken strips, or breast cut into strips
- Himalayan salt and cracked pepper to season
- (optional) banana leaf to serve on
- Pierce a couple of strips of chicken onto the skewers and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Peanut Satay Sauce
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- ½ brown onion finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 small birds-eye chilli, finely chopped
- ¼ cup natural crunchy peanut butter
- ½ cup water
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- ½ tsp balsamic vinegar
- ½ tsp honey
- Turn grill onto medium-high heat. (or fire up the BBQ)
- Heat oil in saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft and golden (about 5 minutes).
- Add garlic and chilli and cook until aromas rise (about 1 minute). Remove from heat.
- Place chicken skewers under the grill to cook.
- Add peanut butter and stir to combine
- Place back onto a low heat then add the rest of the ingredients. Stir continuously until the sauce thickens. (about 3 minutes).
- Check on the skewers and turn to cook through and let the sauce cool down a bit.
- Serve on a banana leaf and enjoy either by pouring the sauce over the top or serving it in a bowl by the skewers.
Serves: about ¾ of a cup
