Creamy Chicken Peanut Butter Satay

Course : Lunch/Dinner | Cuisine: Thai | Servings : 2 persons | Cook Time : 35 minutes

Thai food is a corner of the market that’s very distinctive. It isn’t Chinese food, but differs from Indonesian and even Vietnamese.  Our creamy chicken peanut butter satay recipe utilises all of the ingredients found in abundance in this tropical wonderland.

On Peanut Butter Day (1 March), you can make this whole muscle chicken recipe using most of our chicken products such as Hot ‘n’ Spicy Chicken Chunks, Southern Fried Chicken Fillet or Breaded Chicken Goujons.

Chicken Satay is all about the creamy peanut sauce which is alive with layers of multi-dimensional flavour.  This Peanut Sauce Chicken is everything you love about peanut butter in all its nutty, luscious glory and Thai food infused with ginger, garlic, coconut and lime.

Chef’s tip: try and find some authentic Thai basil for that great finish. It does differ from British basil in taste, so will give a superior taste if you can source it fresh and locally.
