Recipe Tips

  • You can use different cuts of chicken other than a chicken thigh. Depending on your budget other cuts can be much more affordable such as chicken drumsticks etc. (If using drumsticks you may want to cook it for longer)
  • Curry will reheat well so if you end up cooking too much feel free to wrap it and have it for lunch the next day.
  • If you need to bulk out this chicken satay curry, then try adding carrot or potato. These will add a more to the curry for a minimal extra cost.

    made this but did a double dose because i like to cook in bulk.

    its delicious.

    made some slight preferential changes. didn’t add the mushrooms.

    i used crunchy peanut butter so you get a nice crunch and added some sliced and grated carrot.

    also added sweet soy sauce and some lime zest and juice.

    I gave this dish a 5 / 5
