Chicken Satay Salad is a Tasty Way to Stay Healthy

Chicken satay salad is a very simple solution for when you’re craving something healthy and delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 finely chopped cloves garlic
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 large skinless chicken breasts (cut into thin slices)
  • 5 finely sliced scallions
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • thumb-size piece fresh ginger, chopped into tiny pieces
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • handful chopped salted peanuts
  • 1 teaspoon canola or vegetable oil

For the satay sauce:

  • 1 finely chopped garlic clove
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon sunflower oil
  • 3/4 cup light coconut milk
  • thumb-size piece fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 chopped small red chili pepper

Instructions:

Get a bowl and add the coriander, ginger, turmeric, sugar, garlic, and cumin. Put the chicken in the spices and let it stay for at least half an hour. A great idea is to leave it overnight as well.

Set the stove to medium-high and add the oil to a pan. Start cooking the chicken for 6 to 8 minutes until it’s done.

For the peanut sauce, you need to combine the garlic, chili, ginger with a little oil in a pan. Mix everything constantly on the stove for 30 to 40 seconds. Pour the lime juice, soy sauce, coconut milk, and peanut butter. Let the sauce simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Cut the carrots, zucchini, and cucumber into strands. Add the vegetables in a bowl, include the scallions and finish off with the sauce. Top everything off with the chicken and chopped peanuts.
