A simplified version of satay chicken without the extra hassle and work of skewering the meat and grilling them. Plus I would say this is a healthier recipe too because the skin and fats from the chicken have been trimmed and removed. Also, it’s not heavy-handed with sodium or seasonings as the different spices used are the heroes of the dish that really bring out the essence of the satay flavour.
If you like, you can also make a separate satay peanut sauce (click the link for recipe) for dipping, otherwise the sides of cucumber, pineapple and red onions would be too bland to be eaten on their own.
