Healthier chicken satay

This healthier version of satay chicken is one of our most popular recipes, and we can see why. We’ve replaced a good portion of the peanut butter in the sauce with tangy natural yogurt. With plenty of lime and chilli, you still get the classic satay flavour but without so many calories. A 30 minute chicken miracle, you could say.
