Healthy Satay recipe with a twist
This is great for dinner and even better if you have some left overs for lunch. It's my healthy version of Satay sauce with a little sweetener and it goes great with some green veg. Heres what you'll need.
1 Tsp of honey (the sweetener)
500g-600g Chicken thigh
1 Tsp of honey (the sweetner)
2 Tbs of Coconut amino or you can use Soy/Tamari Sauce
2 Tbs of Peanut butter
1 Sliced long red chilli (optional)
Juice of 1 lime
1 Bunch of chopped coriander
2 bunches of Broccoolini
1 bunch of Spring onions
Serve with rice or noodles
In a large blow add the honey, Coconut amino, nut butter, chilli, half the chopped Coriander leaves and lime and mix till ingredients are combined.
Add in the chicken thighs and mix till all the chicken is coated evenly. You could use beef for this too or even use it as a sauce to coat veggies and grill them for a vegan/vego option
Try to marinade this for 2 hours or overnight in the fridge. If you're pressed for time 30 minutes is fine.
Preheat your oven to 180° C (356°F) and line a baking tray with baking paper
While the chicken is preheating take the chicken out of the fridge to begin bringing up to room temperature.
In the meantime pre your veg. Im using broccolini and spring onion. You could add in Spinach, Snow Peas or even Bok Choy.
7. Put the Chicken in the oven for 25-30 minutes
8. While the Chicken is cooking feel free to make up some rice or noodles
9. On a med-hot griddle or fry pan add in the green veg with a splash of oil, salt and pepper. 10. Cook till tinder but make sure the veg still has a bit of crunch to it.
11. Take the chicken out of the oven and serve with sides and remaining coriander.
And there you have it. A delicious take on Satay Chicken and super healthy! I hope you enjoy this one.
