Fabulous BBQ / Summer Entertaining recipes from top chef Rozanne Steven's new book 'Delish'
Chilli Peanut Chicken Skewers Makes 12
This is my version of a traditional satay sauce. I use a pinch of chilli flakes for heat in the sauce. As it can be difficult to foretell the heat of dried chillies, I use Tabasco sauce to add a little extra heat at the end if I feel it's needed. Ideally, the sauce should be very gently simmered for an hour to give you a thick, creamy peanutty sauce with nuances of Thai seasonings. As the recipe makes quite a lot, I serve it with lightly steamed tenderstem broccoli-delish!
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
- 150ml soy sauce
- 1tbsp ginger, grated
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- 1tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 1tbsp sunflower oil
Chilli Peanut Sauce:
- 4-5tbsp peanut butter, unsweetened
- 400ml can coconut milk
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2tsp grated ginger
- 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
- 2-3tsp sugar
- 2tsp soy sauce
Steamed tenderstem broccoli to serve
- Soak the bamboo skewers in cold water to prevent charring.
- Cut the chicken into bite size cubes. Mix the marinade well and pour over the chicken. Leave to marinade for an hour.
- Thread the chicken onto the skewers.
- Ideally BBQ, or grill the chicken skewers under a medium grill for 4 minutes each side. Sprinkle over sesame seeds.
- To make the satay sauce, place the garlic, chilli ginger, sugar and soy in a pot. Gently heat for 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and mix well. Gradually add the coconut milk, mixing to a smooth paste. Check for seasoning.
- Serve the chicken skewers with boiled basmati rice, steamed broccoli and the satay sauce.
