Satay Chicken and Green Beans

Hello hungry peoples,

Satay chicken is one of my hubby’s favourite dishes. Given he does lean towards the fussy side, sometimes causing me to tear my hair out in frustration, I was determined to come up with a good recipe. The only problem is most peanut sauce recipes have a million ingredients. I love this recipe because it produces an amazing sauce that is really simple and easy to make. If you are feeling exceptionally lazy you can even skip the marinating stage and just fry some chicken and pour the sauce on. Let’s get into it!

  • 500g chicken thighs
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2  garlic cloves

Satay sauce

  • 1/3 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp peanut oil for frying

Cooking Directions

  1. Chop the chicken into strips.
  2. Marinade the chicken in the 2 tbsp honey, 2 tbsp soy sauce, 1 tsp turmeric and the 2 garlic cloves crushed.
  3. If your going to serve with rice get it going.
  4. Now to make the Satay sauce. Combine the 1/2 cup coconut cream, 1/2 cup of water, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 2 tsp of fish sauce and 2 tbsp of sweet chilli sauce in a pot and cook on a medium heat so it can thicken and reduce. If you like a thicker sauce just use less of the liquid components.
  5. Put a fry pan on medium heat with some peanut oil and fry the chicken until brown and cooked through.
  6. When the chicken is close to cooked add the green beans and toss regularly until cooked.
  7. Serve with rice with the peanut sauce drizzled on top.
