Satay Chicken Skewers

Or peanut butter chicken as Sammy calls it! This is a take on Jamie Oliver’s 20 minute meals version but to keeps things simple I use lime juice from a bottle, ginger paste and coriander paste instead of the fresh alternatives.

The satay sauce is really simple to make providing you have a mini blender. In here put 3 tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter, one tablespoon of soy sauce, 1/4 teaspoon of dried chilli flakes, one garlic bulb, one tablespoon of lime juice, a pea sized dollop of easy ginger, a thumb size dollop of coriander paste and seasoning. Whiz all this up in the processor and and then use half of the paste to marinate two diced chicken breasts. reserve the other half for dipping later. Skewer the chicken pieces and then place in the oven to cook for 20-25 minutes on fan 190. I like to balance the skewers on a roasting dish (see pic) so that the skewers cook all around and I also like to grill them for a further 5 minutes at the end so they crisp up.

Serve with some egg fried rice and stir fried garlic and chilli broccoli
