This is probably one of the easiest and most flavoursome dishes I cook. There is times I won't cook it for ages and then I do, I think, why don't I make it more often!!!! It ticks all the right boxes - low in fat & calories (yep not kidding), colourful, full of veggies and of course yummy!!!!! So here it is, my Satay Chicken for 2.
1 chicken breast fillet (about 250g) diced
1/2 zucchini cut into strips
1 carrot sliced
1/2 red capsicum cut into chunks
1/2 onion diced
1 clove of garlic crushed
1/4 cup crunchy peanut butter
1 tbs soy sauce
1 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp chilli powder (add more if you like heat)
1 can coconut flavoured evaporated milk (or light coconut milk)
1. In a hot wok (or frypan) add a dash of oil and chicken. Brown. Once cooked through remove from wok.
2. Reoil wok and saute onion and garlic until soften. Add vegetables and cook for 3mins.
Return chicken to wok and all other ingredients, adjusting amount of
coconut milk to the consistency desired (I usually use about 1/2 -3/4 of
a can). Turn heat down. Cook until all combined and heated through
(About 2mins). Serve with rice.
NOTE: DO NOT LET
COCONUT FLAVOURED EVAPORATED MILK BOIL IT WILL SEPARATE AND LOOK
CURDLED! Also don't use reduced fat/salt/sugar peanut butter. Did that
once and it tasted like glue!!!
To cook for 4 people
use two chicken breast fillets and double the vegetables and add a bit
more peanut butter and most of the can of coconut milk. You shouldn't
need to change the other ingredients. The flavour goes a long way :)
For those who are having a case of deja vu, this recipe was indeed previously posted on my old blog!
