Satay Chicken

Most of the time, I follow the recipes I find.  But sometimes, I find several recipes, and then use bits from all of them!  This is what I did tonight, and it turned out well.  Felt like satay chicken but didn't have a jar of the sauce I normally use, so decided to try to make it from scratch. 

500g chicken breast, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 pack vermicelli
1 can of coconut milk (or cream)
3 tbsp peanut butter
sweet chilli sauce (to taste)
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp white vinegar
2 or 3 tbsp of sugar
1/2 cup water
salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp crushed ginger


  • Set some salted water to boil, for the vermicelli.  Once it boils, add the vermicelli then turn off the heat.
  • Meanwhile, brown chicken and onion in oil, in a fry pan
  • Add ginger and garlic, cook for 2 min
  • Add coconut cream, peanut butter, chilli sauce, soy sauce, sugar, white vinegar, and salt
  • Stir and bring to a simmer
  • Reduce heat and simmer until thickens
  • Add peas and cook until tender
  • Serve on drained vermicelli noodles, or rice

So this was kind of an ad-libbed recipe, but it tasted good, and photographed terribly.  I think I'll make it again in future, but on rice.
