Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Chicken Satay might be just the main course you are searching for. For $2.44 per serving, this recipe covers 18% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. This recipe makes 4 servings with 719 calories, 29g of protein, and 62g of fat each. Not a lot of people made this recipe, and 1 would say it hit the spot. If you have chicken thigh meat, salt, ready made satay sauce, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the ground cumin you could follow this main course with the Moroccan Chocolate Mousse as a dessert. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes about 45 minutes. It is a good option if you're following a dairy free diet. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 46%. This score is pretty good.

Instructions

  1. Soak 20 bamboo skewers for at least 2 hours in a glass of water. This is to prevent the sticks from burning and breaking when placed under the grill or over the coals.
  2. Add the ground coriander, ground cumin, turmeric powder, chilli powder, salt, saugar, coconut cream and vegetable oil in a large bowl. Mix well.
  3. Cut the chicken into long thin strips.
  4. Marinate the chicken in the sauce. Ensure the chicken are well coated.
  5. Tightly seal the bowl with cling wrap and place in the fridge. Leave to marinade for at least 4 hours. The longer, the better.
  6. In the meantime, prepare the sauce.
  7. Look for a reputable brand of satay sauce. I always use Lee Kum Kee.
  8. Add about 6 tablespoons of the satay sauce into a bowl.
  9. The rest of these steps are to be done, subject to taste. I like to taste as I add the other condiments.
  10. Add the crunchy peanut butter, coconut cream and water. If the sauce is too thick, thin it down with a little more water.
  11. Add the dark soy sauce, sugar and ground peanuts
  12. Seal the bowl with cling wrap and set aside until ready to serve. Before serving, warm the satay sauce in the microwave oven, covered slightly, for approximately 1.5 to 2mins.
  13. When you are ready to grill the chicken, start forming satays by piercing the chicken through the bamboo skewers. I find it alot easier to pierce the meat into the sticks when they are long strips and I pierce through in an undulating manner. Set aside until ready to use.
  14. Preheat your oven to 200 deg Celsius at GRILL. Place your oven shelf higher and closer to the top too.
  15. Lay the satay sticks on a cooling mesh sitting over a flat baking sheet to collect drippings.
  16. Place the tray of satay under the grill. And grill for 10 to 20 mins. It really depends on how thick your chicken sticks are.
  17. Remove the tray from the oven when one side of the satay is a golden brown (not dark brown!). Turn over the satay to the other side. And continue to grill till it has a nice dark golden brown. I like it a little burnt.
  18. Serve warm with satay sauce and sliced cucumber.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • Be conscious of your choice of cooking oils. Some studies have shown that vegetable oils like safflower oil, sunflower oil, and canola oil might actually contribute to heart disease. Olive oil is a good alternative for low temperature cooking, while coconut oil is a recent favorite for high temperature cooking. Do your research!

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!
