Chicken satay salad: RECIPE

Chicken satay salad

Marinate chicken breasts, then drizzle with a punchy peanut satay sauce for a no-fuss, midweek meal that’s high in protein and big on flavour.

1 tbsp tamari

1 tsp medium curry powder
¼ tsp ground cumin
1 garlic clove, finely grated
1 tsp clear honey
2 skinless chicken breast fillets (or use turkey breast)
1 tbsp crunchy peanut butter

(choose a sugar-free version with no palm oil, if possible)
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp lime juice
a little sunflower oil

, for wiping the pan
2 Little Gem lettuces hearts, cut into wedges
¼ cucumber, halved and sliced
1 banana shallot, halved and thinly sliced
generous handful coriander, chopped
seeds from ½ pomegranate

Chicken satay salad

Pour the tamari into a large dish and stir in the curry powder, cumin, garlic and honey. Mix well. Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally to make 4 fillets in total, then add to the marinade and mix well to coat. Set aside in the fridge for at least 1 hr, or overnight, to allow the flavours to penetrate the chicken.

Meanwhile, mix the peanut butter with the chilli sauce, lime juice, and 1 tbsp water to make a spoonable sauce. When ready to cook the chicken, wipe a large non-stick frying pan with a little oil. Add the chicken and cook, covered with a lid, for 5-6 mins on a medium heat, turning the fillets over for the last min, until cooked but still moist. Set aside, covered, to rest for a few mins.

While the chicken rests, toss the lettuce wedges with the cucumber, shallot, coriander and pomegranate, and pile onto plates. Spoon over a little sauce. Slice the chicken, pile on top of the salad and spoon over the remaining sauce. Eat while the chicken is still warm.
