Peanut Satay & Chilli Chicken with Green Beans

Cooking for two doesn’t have to be fancy. However, you shouldn’t compromise on the delicious factor and the fulfilling factor. I always need to be fully satisfied with my meals – whether it’s a light or moderate or heavy meal, it just needs to have that “YUM” factor. This dish is definitely one of them!
3-4 chicken thigh fillets, sliced into bite-sized pieces
1 tsp chilli paste
150g peanuts, roughly crushed
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp caster sugar
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tbsp crunchy / light peanut butter
1/4 cup full cream milk
Salt and pepper to taste
300g green beans, chopped 1-inch long
Cooked noodles to serve
Marinate chicken pieces in chilli, crushed peanuts, light soy sauce and caster sugar, preferably overnight. To cook, heat canola oil in a wok. Toss chicken in oil until just browning. Add green beans and stirfry for approx. 3 min. Add peanut butter and milk, season lightly with salt and pepper. Cook for another approx. 5 mins, or until green beans are just tender. Serve hot on a bed of cooked noodles.

  1. This looks absolutely fabulous!! Just the thing I have been looking for, I never seem happy with the peanut sauced dishes I have tried. This has been saved so I can give it a try!


  2. I just had chicken satay on a stick today but I must say, your version with the green beans and noodles look so much better! I love this, must try the recipe.


  3. Mmmmm, it's a while since I've been here and this was the photo greeting me! What could be better?! Satay is a firm favourite in our house – the spicier the better! 🙂


  4. I totally agree – cooking for two (and even more especially for one) should never be a compromise. In fact, I think that if you're only feeding two instead of a family of four or more you can usually afford to splurge out a little. This dish look delicious – a definite bookmark :-)Sue


  5. Satay's always good, isn't it? I've never met anyone who doesn't like satay esp with a good sauce. This is a great twist to the regular skewered stuff. Congrats on getting top 9!


  6. This looks great Kim! Definitely our kind of 2 person meal! And I agree with you, just because you're not cooking for a crowd, doesn't mean we have to skimp on flavor!
