Home made satay chicken.

5th January, 2019.
From being a Chinese food takeaway addict, to making fresh and delicious fried noodles, rice or other meat dishes in my own kitchen, (thanks to my new year revolution - save minimum of £1000 a month, and stop spending money on things you don't need, such as 'eating out') I have finally began to try out new Thai recipes at home. With satay chicken being my number one dish I could never refuse, why not give it a go. But first... Let's customise the recipe !! I wouldn't be myself otherwise.
  
You will need...
+ small ginger +
+ 2 garlic cloves +
+ 500g chicken breast +
+ 1 can of coconut milk +
+ 1 tbsp. clear honey +
+ 3 tbsp. smooth peanut butter +
+ 1 lime zest & juice +
+ 1 tbsp. soy sauce +
+ 1 tbsp. veg oil +

How to make it...
In a big bowl add veg oil, pressed/grated garlic, peeled and grated ginger, honey, peanut butter, juice whole lime and 1 tsp. of lime zest. Give all ingredients a good mix. Transfer 2/3rd of the mixture into a heating pot. Add chopped up chicken breast to the remaining marinate, mix ensuring all meat is covered, cover with film foil and set in the fridge to chill for an hour. Turn the gas on medium heat. Add coconut milk into the pot with the peanut mixture. Stirring occasionally. In a separate pan heat up small amount of oil and fry up the marinated chicken 5-6 mins on each side. You will notice it turn a lovely brown colour. Next, transfer the chicken into the pot with the sauce, turn the heat down and cover with lid. Stirring occasionally. You can do this for up to 30 minutes. Allowing the chicken to absorb the delicious flavour from the sauce and become more tender with each minute. Serve with noodles, rice or potato wedges and a salad or veggies of your choice...
