Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp mild curry paste
  • 100g low-fat natural yogurt
  • 8 free-range skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 3cm chunks
  • 100g sugar snap peas, sliced lengthways
  • 150g red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 medium carrots, cut into ribbons with a vegetable peeler
  • ½ tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Juice ½ lime, plus wedges to serve
  • 2 tbsp roughly chopped coriander, plus extra to serve

Method

  1. Heat the grill to high. Put the peanut butter, curry paste and yogurt in a mixing bowl, then mix together until combined.
  2. Add the chicken, tossing to coat, then thread onto 8 kebab skewers (see tip) and put on a baking tray. Grill for 20 minutes, turning regularly, until the chicken is lightly charred and cooked through (cut into the largest piece to check it’s cooked).
  3. Meanwhile, to make the slaw, put the vegetables in a mixing bowl and toss with the sesame oil and lime juice. Season well with salt and pepper, then stir in the coriander. Serve 2 satay sticks per person on a bed of slaw with extra coriander and lime wedges to squeeze over.

  1. Made this at the weekend and was awesome. The sauce was slightly thick though so I slackened it off with some groundnut oil. I also added some peppers to the skewers and gave the whole thing a light spray of oil before sticking them under the grill. Will definitely make these again
