Clean Satay Chicken w/ Courgette and Carrot Noodles
Everyone loves a cheeky Chinese every now and then right? But how often do we make our own Chinese food at home?
This is my adaptation of Satay Chicken - using all nourishing ingredients for your body and tasting 'Friday-night-feasting' mega good!
This is a great meal full of healthy natural fats and protein - and is simple and quick to prepare!
1 carrot (per person) Spirallized
1 small courgette (per person) Spirallized
Mixed in with the noodles you can use bamboo shoots, runner beans chopped or peas or whatever you fancy! The crunchier veggies taste better in the mix, try and avoid sweet veggies such as sweetcorn as you already get the sweetness running through with the carrot and the honey in the satay sauce.
3 heaped tablespoons of Good quality natural Peanut Butter
200ml of coconut milk
1 teaspoon Soy Sauce
3 x Spring onions (chopped)
1 clove of garlic
1 heaped tablespoon of honey (preferably mine ;-p)
1 x Red Chilli (diced finely)
Use which ever chicken you prefer...thighs, legs, breast...my favourite is thigh as it always seems to be much more juicy!
1.) Put your chicken in a baking tray with a little coconut oil or rapeseed oil and bake in the oven for instructed time (depending on the cut)
2. Whilst that is baking, lets get making the satay and noodles...
3.) Spiralize your carrot and courgette, sprinkle over a little salt and put to one side.
4.) dice your spring onion and put into a wok with a little coconut oil.
5.) Once the onion has softened a bit, put in the pan your honey, soy sauce, garlic and chilli and keep stirring until it is looking slightly caramelised.
6.) Add your peanut butter and keep stirring until the mixture is almost like a warm paste.
7.) Slowly pour in your coconut milk until the satay is your desired consistency and taste MEGA! Set aside.
8.) In a separate wok, heat your carrot and courgette noodles with your veggies of choice for approximately 4 minutes or until slightly softened and heated through. Sprinkle over some salt and pepper to season.
9.) SATAY ASSEMBLE!!!
10.) place your noodles and veggie in a wide bowl, then your chicken on top and pour over your magical satay sauce! Voila!
