Bank Holiday BBQs Easy Chicken Satay


Serves 4-5

4 chicken breasts

Satay sauce
2 cloves of garlic
4 heaped tbsp peanut butter
3 tbsp mango chutney
2 tsp curry paste
2 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp lime juice
150ml chicken stock



Satay Sauce
In a food processor, blend all of the satay sauce ingredients apart from the chicken stock. Once well blended, splash in a little of the stock and blend again. Repeat until the sauce is a smooth consistency (you want to be able to marinate the chicken, but not have the sauce too runny).

Chicken Skewers
Dice the chicken breasts into cubes and place in a dish. Cover with the satay sauce. Stir and leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes. Once marinated, thread the chicken cubes onto wooden skewers. Grill or BBQ on a high heat for 15 minutes, turning the skewers at regular intervals. Put the remaining satay sauce into a small saucepan and heat through for 5 minutes. Serve as extra dipping sauce.

Serve the satay skewers with a crispy green salad (little gem lettuces are ideal) and rice or noodles.
