Keep these nutty chicken satay strips in the fridge for a healthy choice when you're peckish. The chicken is served with cucumber and sweet chilli sauce. They work great as the protein portion of your main meal, or as a snack.
2 tbsp chunky peanut butter (without palm oil or sugar)
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 tsp Madras curry powder
few shakes soy sauce
2 tsp lime juice
2 skinless, chicken breast fillets (about 300g) cut into thick strips
about 10cm cucumber, cut into fingers
sweet chilli sauce to serve
Heat oven to 200C, 180C fan, gas 4 and line a baking tray with non-stick paper.
Mix the peanut butter with the garlic, curry powder, soy sauce and lime in a bowl. Some nut butters are thicker than others, so if necessary, add a dash of boiling water to get a coating consistency. Add the chicken strips, mix well then arrange on the baking sheet, spaced apart, and bake in the oven for 8-10 mins until cooked, but still juicy.
Eat warm with the cucumber sticks and chilli sauce, or leave to cool then keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.
