5 Ingredient Chicken Satay Sauce Recipe


5 Ingredient Chicken Satay Sauce Recipe


Why bother with a healthy 5 Ingredient Chicken Satay Sauce Recipe, that's Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo and I suppose technically Keto friendly?


What makes this recipe truly exceptional is its commitment to using all-natural ingredients. Say goodbye to store-bought satay sauces filled with questionable additives and added sugars. Instead, we've crafted a delightful homemade satay sauce that perfectly complements the tender chicken and vibrant vegetables.


The majority of store bought satay sauce has sugar as the first or second ingredient. Don't believe me? Check out a packet next time you're in a supermarket. Check out this example of Whitlock & Son's Peanut Satay Sauce. Click to view.



5 Natural Sweet, Salty & Tangy Ingredients


Made with almond butter, coconut aminos, lime juice, ginger, and a touch of honey (if desired), this sauce strikes the perfect balance of flavours without compromising your health goals.


Almond Butter Versus Peanut Butter


Why almond butter? You can use either almond or peanut depending on your preferences, but what many people don't know is that peanuts are actually a legume, not a nut. They can trigger a lot of people due to the anti-nutrient properties. Scroll down for a reference. Due to the lectins, phytates and a whole host of other issues. A story for another day. But if you are OK with peanuts....go for gold!


Replacing Rice With Cauliflower Rice


But that's not all. By replacing traditional rice with cauliflower rice, you're avoiding the glucose load that often comes with consuming starchy grains. Cauliflower rice provides a low-carb alternative that's equally satisfying and adds a delightful texture to the dish. Plus, it's a fantastic way to incorporate more vegetables into your meal.


Not only does this paleo satay chicken curry with cauliflower rice tick all the right boxes when it comes to flavour and nutrition, but it also won't weigh you down with unnecessary calories. With less than half the calories of a typical takeaway version, you can enjoy a satisfying meal without sacrificing your health or fitness goals.



Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup almond butter (unsweetened)

  2. 2 tablespoons coconut aminos (a GF paleo-friendly alternative to soy sauce)

  3. 2 tablespoons lime juice

  4. 1 teaspoon/tablespoon honey (optional, for a touch of sweetness)

  5. 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

(I recommend adding additional chilli or similar if you like it hot!)


For the satay chicken curry:

  • Chicken breast or thigh meat, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • Your choice of vegetables (such as bell peppers, onions, and zucchini), sliced

  • Coconut oil, for cooking

  • Cauliflower rice, prepared as desired

Instructions:

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, coconut aminos, lime juice, honey (if using), and ground ginger. Mix well until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. If the sauce is too thick, you can add a little water to thin it out.

  2. Heat a skillet or pan over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of coconut oil. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken pieces and cook until they are browned and cooked through. Remove the cooked chicken from the pan and set aside.

  3. In the same pan, add another tablespoon of coconut oil and the sliced vegetables. Stir-fry the vegetables until they are tender-crisp.

  4. Once the vegetables are cooked, return the cooked chicken to the pan. Pour the prepared paleo satay sauce over the chicken and vegetables. Stir everything together until the sauce is evenly distributed and heated through.

  5. Serve the satay chicken curry over cauliflower rice, either steamed or pan-fried according to your preference.
