Simple Chicken Satay Recipe

The past few weeks I have been trying to stick to a high protein/low carbs diet. This means that I've been eating a lot of fish, chicken and turkey but these foods can get boring so I have been on the look out for recipes to spice things up a little shall we say. One of my all time favourite foods is peanut butter, so chicken satay is something I've always loved but never actually made myself but after a little experimenting I think I have managed to conjure up a recipe that is relatively low in calories but totally delicious even if I do say so myself.

How I've made it is more like a stir fry version but the chicken can be skewered and cooked on the barbecue if preferred, although I think our Summer in Britain has ended but those of you in hotter countries enjoy!!


* 1 small red onion diced
* 1 tsp crushed garlic (fresh or ready made will do)
* 2 tsp mild curry powder
* 1 1/2 tbsp peanut butter (I used crunchy but you can use smooth)
* 1 tsp honey
* 2 tbsp dark soy sauce
* 250g diced chicken


* In a heated pan, fry the onions and garlic for a few minutes.

* In a bowl mix together the curry powder, peanut butter, honey and soy sauce. Adding in the onion and garlic to the mixture.

* Spoon in your diced chicken, making sure to cover it completely in the marinade, pop in the fridge for 2-3 hours to let the flavours take hold.

* When ready to eat, fry in a large pan, cooking for around 20 minutes, make sure to check the chicken is no longer pink before taking off the hob.

I served mine with roasted vegetables but you can change this for stir fried veg, or perhaps a large salad or if your feeling like you need more, what about some sweet potato wedges sprinkled with smoked paprika.

What's your favourite way to eat chicken?



  1. How tasty, I love peanut butter too, what a great idea to have as a stir fry. Thanks for sharing Chantelle :-)

  2. This looks really gorgeous. I need to find a soya sauce replacement for the youngest and then I can give this a go. Food intolerances are so tricky!

  3. Ooh this looks like something I would LOVE! I love satay chicken and so does the hubby so may have to give this one a go :) #foodpornthursdays

  4. Oh this looks yummy! I love chicken and I love trying new recipes because yes, it can get boring :) I usually make Pakistani or Indian inspired recipes but love Asian ones too. Chicken is quite versatile isn't it? Not to mention easier to cook than red meat :P

  5. This looks fab & I love that there aren't too many ingredients to be added in. We also enjoy crunch peanut butter & I bet the added crunch would be gorgeous. Thanks so much for linking up with #foodpornthursdays x

  6. This is the first time I have ever commented on a dish, it was THAT GOOD! My boyfriend kept saying it exceeded his expectations and that it was better than anything we could get at a restaurant. Thank you so much, will definitely be coming back for more recipes. You made someone who doesn’t typically cook enjoy cooking

  7. Wow, delicious! Your dish looks really yummy and it has inspired me! Now I think I will go to the supermarket, buy ingredients then make this! Thanks for your great recipe.

  8. Wow, what's a creative dish. My mom will love it. Thank you.
