Chicken satay can play so many roles on your table. It can be a perfect low carb solution served with boiled/steamed veggies (like broccoli) or a comfort weekend dinner together with warm yummy rice. In any case we are talking about chicken satay, doesn’t matter if chicken breasts or chicken skewers. So for me I really do not care what comes with it, as long as the sauce is creamy and rich from all those peanuts!
Should we talk about this creamy sauce? Of course you can always buy already pre-made satay sauce. But I have to tell you, it is so simple to prepare it at home.
As already known, we are here to try to make your life easier with busy week meals and this one is definitely one of those.
Chicken can be done in the oven as well, to make it easier. If you have some minutes extra, make an effort and grill it slowly to make it crispy outside and soft inside. Together with this homemade creamy peanut sauce – this makes a perfect combo.
