A bit of work here but not expensive.

An impressive meal when you have more time than money.

- 4 full legs of chicken (thighs and drumsticks)

- 120g streaky rashers

- 1 leek - including the green part

- 25g. butter

- 2 egg whites

Sate Sauce:

- Small onion (finely chopped)

- 2 Cloves Garlic (Crushed)

- 25g. Root Ginger (grated)

- 1 tbs Sunflower Oil

- Pinch Chilli Powder

- 1 tsp.Turmeric

- 2 tsp. Soy Sauce

- 1 tsp. Brown Sugar

- Grated rind and Juice of a half Lime

- 4 oz. Water

- 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter.


For the sausage, chop the leek finely, rinse well under running water, and cook gently in a covered pot with the butter until soft. Take the chicken off the bone, discard the skin and bone and chop the flesh roughly. Chop the rashers. Put the chicken meat, rashers, leeks, egg whites and plenty of salt and pepper into a food processor and pulse until it is all well chopped and mixed but still chunky.

Lay out a large sheet of cling film and spoon a long sausage sized portion along one end. Roll this tightly up in the film and twist the ends firmly to seal the sausage. Repeat this until all the mixture is used up. Poach these sausages in simmering water for 15 to 20 mts. until cooked through, then leave to cool.

For the sauce, sweat the onion, garlic and ginger together in the oil until soft. Add the spices and cook together for a few minutes. Then add the soy, sugar, lime and the peanut butter and water. Let these come to a simmer and bubble gently together until the peanut thickens the sauce. Leave this to cool.

To serve slice the cold sausage in thick slices and fry these on both sides in sunflower oil or butter until browned. Serve the Sate sauce on the plate as a cold relish.

(this is delicious as a starter for 8 people served like this with a little salad or would work as a main course with the warmed sate sauce poured over the sausage and served with some rice or Couscous.)

  • A Wonderful Harvest

    Even though the weather Gods didn’t exactly play ball over the weekend it doesn’t take away from the fact that this years Waterford Harvest Festival was yet again another wonderful success. It was great to see the streets of the centre of the city so beautifully and thoughtfully decked out. The various food stalls offering tastes from all over were great to wander around. The information and background that each of the stall holders were able to give on the provenance of their food was really interesting an …
