Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe of the day is Simple Chicken Satay! This is a lovely family recipe that your family would love. It’s simple to make, I baked the chicken in the oven, so the only thing that you need to do really is to marinade it the night before.
You can always marinade it for a few hours only but the flavour is much better and the chicken tastes divine when left overnight. It helps the marinade to work properly and the chicken bites to absorb it. 🙂
I used peanut butter, soy sauce and curry powder, oh, and a tiny bit of lemon juice. It got a bit thick so I added a bit of water too.
To be honest, I was a bit surprise that my kids actually liked the chicken. I mean, they enjoy chicken but plain, so I was a bit sceptical. But it seems recently they’ve been surprising me a lot in regards to food. I guess their taste buds are changing. 🙂
They specifically requested some chips to go with it but as I was on the move, I didn’t have any time so I offered them tasty bulgur salad with olives and cherry tomatoes and they agreed. 🙂 At least I know for sure they like olives and tomatoes so everything with them is fine (almost every time).
And of course, I had to make the chips later on, when I had time. That was the deal. Sometimes, it feels like they can live on chips. And they’re quite fussy about their chips too. 🙂 They should be skinny, plain and yellow in colour. 🙂 What requirements, huh! 🙂 Oh, and not burnt, even a tiny bit.
So let me tell you about the bulgur wheat salad… This salad was quite like tabbouleh but with not so much herbs. I find the bulgur so tasty, especially in salads. It’s been a while since I last cooked with it so I’m glad I found it in my kitchen cupboard. And apparently, it is really beneficial to your health. So let’s stock up on some bulgur. 🙂 I really need to now as I’m out of it. 🙂
You can serve the Chicken Satay with almost everything, well I said almost. 🙂 It’ll be delicious with some lime rice, quinoa, chips, couscous, roasted veggies, again, whatever you fancy. 🙂 Or why not make this bulgur wheat salad, it’s super quick and super tasty.
