Using time-saving ingredients, this speedy satay recipe is ready in just 25 minutes. You can make the recipe using pork fillet if you fancy a change from chicken.


  • 4 skinless free-range chicken breasts
  • 200g satay peanut sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 pak choi, quartered lengthways
  • 300g pack cooked Thai fragrant rice
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • A squeeze of lime
  • Extra lime wedges for squeezing over

  2. Thread the chicken onto the wooden skewers. Heat a large griddle pan or frying pan, and cook for 8 minutes, until browned on all sides and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, steam the pak choi for 5 minutes and warm the rice in the microwave according to the pack instructions.
  4. In a dipping bowl, mix the remaining 50g satay peanut sauce with the coconut milk and a squeeze of lime.
  5. Serve the skewers with the extra sauce, for dipping, steamed pak choi, bowls of Thai fragrant rice, and extra lime wedges for squeezing over.
