”This easy midweek dinner has all the flavours of satay, minus the hassle of using skewers and chargrilling. The longer you marinate the chicken, the more flavourful your dish will be.” – the late food writer Valli Little

Recipe from My Kind of Food by Valli Little (ABC Books), published in Australia.

  1. I have never been tempted to comment on a recipe until now. Of all the recipes I have cooked from the Delicious website, this has to be the best. I marinated this morning and have just had it for dinner, beautifully tender, flavourful and somehow wonderfully authentic. Highly recommended.

  2. Wonderfully tasty and so easy, definitely a recipe to become part of my regular repertoire. Thank you Valli Little for all your super recipes.
