This is a non traditional recipe but it is quick and easy to prepare and gluten free!

The sauce goes really well with my satay chicken recipe on the blog and serve with white rice for a delicious dinner.

Barbecue prawns or tempeh are yummy with this sauce too.

Ingredients

1/2 brown onion, chopped very finely

1 tablespoon sesame oil

200g peanut butter, I use smooth

2 tablespoons gluten free soy sauce

270mls coconut milk

6 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce

Method

Heat the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat.

Once hot add the onion and lower the heat, cook slowly until softened.

Add the peanut butter, soy sauce, coconut milk and sweet chilli sauce.

Warm through and serve.

Easy Chicken Satay

image

Having lived in Indonesia for 6 years we all developed a taste for chicken satay.  Since then, I now have to make it gluten free so I use Tamari sauce or gluten free soy sauce.

As with any food served on sticks, the boys love it and could probably eat their body weight in satay if given the chance!

I serve this with a satay sauce, recipe to follow on the blog, again, not traditional but, quick, easy and very tasty. Other than that, some boiled rice and you have dinner.

Serves 4-6 depending on appetites.

Ingredients

1kg chicken breast, cut into 2cm cubes

2 tablespoons honey

125mls Tamari, gluten free or regular soy sauce

90 mls sesame oil

2 tablespoons ground coriander

1/2-1 teaspoon chilli powder

2 teaspoons ground turmeric

2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

35-40g fresh ginger, peeled and grated

Method

In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients, except chicken. Mix well.

Add chicken, mix well and set aside to marinade for 1-2hours.

Take 16 wooden skewers and soak in water for at least 30mins.

Heat a frying pan or BBQ to hot.

Take a skewer and slide on a handful of chicken, repeat with the remaining skewers.

Place in the frying pan or on the BBQ and cook, turning regularly until cooked through, around 10mins.

Serve hot or warm with satay sauce and rice.
