  • 125 g chicken thigh fillets diced into 3cm pieces
  • 2 skewers bamboo skewers soaked in water for 5 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon peanuts crushed
  • 1/2 bunch broccolini tough end trimmed
  • 1/2 bunch pak choy end trimmed
  • 1/4 lime
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 red chilli seeds removed and finely chopped

Ingredients for Satay Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon white miso paste
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 clove garlic peeled
  • 1 tablespoon coconut milk from carton
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 lime juiced


  • Begin by soaking the skewers in water for 5 minutes.
  • To make the satay sauce, place all ingredients into a blender. Blitz until you form a smooth, thick sauce, similar to a regular satay sauce. Add a dash of water if your sauce is too thick.
  • Combine Satay Sauce and chicken in large bowl. Season with freshly cracked black pepper and gently toss to coat. Cover the bowl with a tea towel and allow to marinate for 5 minutes.
  • Preheat the grill to high and thread the marinated chicken evenly across the skewers.
  • Place underneath the grill and cook for 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes until the chicken is browned all over.
  • In the meantime, steam the veggies. Start by placing 1 cup of water in a small saucepan that fits a steamer and bring to the boil. Place broccolini and pak choy in a steamer and sit it on top of the saucepan. Place lid on and steam for 3-4 minutes, until veggies are tender.
  • Place the skewers and veggies between on a plate and serve with peanuts, lime wedges and chilli.
