Quick and Easy Spicy Satay

C. Knight / krider

I’ve not posted a recipe for a while. Partly this is because we’ve eaten a fair few salads in the warmer weather, and because we’ve been repeating favourite dishes. It’d get a bit boring if I posted the same recipe endlessly 😉

However for a change the other day we came back to a stupidly simple chicken stir fry that is flexible enough to be served with roast vegetables, salad, rice, … The dish does have some vegetables already in them, but more won’t hurt. In our case we had it with rice as I needed the carbs post training 🙂

The dish is a spicy satay. A bit different to the usual satay as we both enjoy spicy food.

It makes use of a peanut butter that is already spiced; The Heat is On from The Peanut Butter & Co. I’ve purchased it from Amazon as I think it is a US product. Buying six jars at once works out very reasonably priced and it’s great on toast as well as an ingredient.

 

It’s a quick dish to both prepare and cook and contains a good amount of protein. The carbs come from the veggies already included, though you can choose to boost that if you so wish. I tend to make four portions in one go so we can either have the leftovers another night, or I get two lunches. I’ve had this with the protein noodles as a lunch as that worked quite well too. The noodles took on the flavour of the sauce.

Give it a try, and let me know what you think.
