Supercharged Satay Chicken 5 0 5 49

Hands down my favourite recipe from book 5 - I even cooked this one live on the Today Show 🙂

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 2 hrs 30 mins
  • 20 mins

    2 hrs 30 mins

    2 hrs 50 mins

  • Yields: 4-5

Ingredients

1.25kg chicken thigh fillets, sliced into strips

1 medium brown onion, diced

1 heaped tsp minced garlic

1 x 270g can full fat coconut cream

1 cup crunchy peanut butter

2 tsp cornflour

1 small red chilli deseeded and fine diced

80ml kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)

2 tsp soy sauce

1Tbsp brown sugar

1tsp fish sauce

Directions

1Add chicken, onion and garlic to a searing slow cooker (or fry pan) and sear/seal for 5-10mins. No need to brown chicken, just seal it and soften onion.

2Combine all other listed ingredients in a jug and mix with a stick mixer or blender to thoroughly combine peanut butter through the coconut milk mix.

3Pour over chicken and onion and garlic and turn back to slow cooking setting. (If used fry pan move to slow cooker now)

4Cook on low with tea towel trick in place for 2.5hrs

5Serve on brown rice

Notes

1This produces a lovely thick strong satay sauce. You can reduce the peanut butter to ½ cup if you don’t like a strong peanut taste but we loved it exactly as it was in our family.

2You can also swap crunchy peanut butter for smooth if you prefer and add 1/3 crushed peanuts before serving if you rather.

3The 1 small chilli (without seeds) wasn’t spicy and our 5yr old happily ate this with no concerns

Absolutely a big yes. Thanks Paulene for another delicious recipe. I did 1 and a half times all ingredients apart from the chicken. I also used chilli oil instead of fresh chilli as I didn’t have any. 10 out of 10.

Loved it! Added fresh ginger for an extra kick

This is a go-to recipe. Our family love it and it is so easy to make. I used a can of lite Carnation Milk with some coconut oil instead of coconut cream as we didn’t have any the last time – this worked a treat and provided some extra yummy sauce.

We absolutely love this recipe!!!
Both of my young children love it! And my partner keeps asking me to make it.
We dont use chilli but instead use sweet chilli sauce it is perfect to cut through the peanut butter!
We’ve also put our left overs into pies which are amazing!!

The taste is amazing!

In future I’ll cut my thigh meat smaller just for personal preference. I needed longer than 2.5 hours but feel 2.5 hours will be adequate with smaller cuts.

I used 375g of peanut butter and 400g coconut cream as I’d read on other reviews that it made extra sauce. I’m so pleased I made extra sauce. Today’s lunch is rice, veggies and loads of satay sauce. YUMMMM.

Served it with basmatti rice, steamed green beans, steamed sweet potato and pataks pappadums!!!

The entire family loved this one!!!

Such a yummy dish that the whole family loved & asked me to pleeeasse make it again!

Kylie

June 3, 2020

Yum! By far, my favourite dish yet! I kept the thighs whole, and cooked for 5hrs as my SL does not get as hot as some and it came out falling apart. So good!

Absolutely love this recipe. It’s a weekly favourite in our house.
I usually do it with a pork fillet and the shred it at the end.
So it makes pulled pork satay instead but I still love it with chicken as well.

Alison

May 25, 2020

Just amazing. So easy and so very very delicious. It’s gone to top of the last of our favourite s.

Bec

May 21, 2020

Amazing! Accidentally added a whole 400ml can of coconut cream and found that this made for a perfect satay for my family. Thanks for a great recipe!

What is the tea towel trick?

Rowena

May 19, 2020

After all the amazing reviews, I decided to try it. WOW. So easy to cook. My brother loved it and said add this to the meal planner list.
I used smooth peanut butter as that’s what I had and didn’t use fish sauce or chilli as didn’t have any.
Can’t wait to make it again!!

Angela

We love this recipe, it’s a regular in our house. I use crunchy peanut butter and probably a bit extra than the recipe asks for. My husband loves it and has had many work colleagues jealous when he takes leftovers to work!

Rai Dietrich

May 7, 2020

First time making this WOW! I loved it. I keep going past the fridge and snacking on the leftovers. I’ll be making this again for sure.
I used a whole jar of crunchy peanut butter with a full can of coconut cream. So saucy.

This was really yum. My son said, “This chicken is really good!” I used 1kg of chicken thigh fillets, but next time I will use 500g and add some more vegetables to the satay. I was feeding four, 2 adults and 2 teenagers, and my kids ate it all but not hubby and me. It tasted fantastic, but was too much as a serve even with 1kg of chicken thighs. I also didn’t have kecap manis, so I added 2 Tblspns of curry powder and 1tsp of paprika as a substitute. Just to give it a kick of flavour and colour. I added 1/2 tsp of chilli powder instead of a whole chilli as that’s all I had. I also used a whole can of coconut milk 400 ml, but I added water twice as the mix thickened up considerably.

Low as recipe states 🙂

Wat setting on the slow cooker did everyone use I’m trying it for the first time

This was amazing. Absolutely loved it. I only used 3/4 cup crunchy peanut butter and this was enough for my liking. Will definitely make this one again.

Kerri

Pretty much the all time fav of the family. It is perfect as is – don’t change a thing!

Danyelle

One of my standbys as I always have these ingredients on hand (and even had them during isolation)

Nicole

March 27, 2020

This was lovely. We did vary it with normal normal thickened cream as we didn’t have coconut on hand, with some cornflour to thicken and avoid splitting it was quite rich so would try withcocnut cream next but family with 6 kids did enjoy. Thanks again for awesome recipes at this time.

We love the satay recipe, it’s my go to for satay . Never buy the jar stuff again … love it. Think it might be on menu again very soon

Eliza

March 20, 2020

Love this recipe thank you! I use it on full chicken breasts, then fork shred them when cooked and stir in frozen stirfry veg and hoikkien noodles. Easiest dinner ever!

Abigail

March 15, 2020

I cooked this up with the thighs still whole and it tasted delisious. I used a 400ml can of coconut cream,added a few carrots with 30 min left, but did find it looked a bit oily at the end product.
My slow cooker didn’t allow me to put it on for 2.5 hrs on low so I manually turned it off at the given time. If I was to double the recipe I would then cook it for 3-4hrs..
Family enjoyed the flavour and like that it is quick and easy. Thanks ☺️

Mel

A favourite in our family. I use extra coconut cream and leave out the cornflour as as like it saucy!

Shannon Anderson

March 15, 2020

10/10 my family love this. Most satay recipes we find a bit bland but this one is awesome. I add an extra heaped spoonful of peanut butter, an extra chilli 🌶 and double the Kecap manis ( did this by accident the first time but loved it so continue to do it)

Charly L

March 10, 2020

Oh! I also had to cook this for 3.5 hours with my slow cooker and just used M Barker diced chicken thighs.

Charly L

I made this the other day. Incredible! I didn’t add cornflour, chili or sugar and used smooth (have a 7 month old). I added 1tbsp lemongrass, and a tsp each of ground coriander and tumeric. Incredible everyone! It was super sweet from the kecap and coconut cream so for our tastes I didn’t need to add extra sugar. I added extra fish sauce to my individual plate and served with hot Jasmine rice, steamed vegetables and Asian greens. Will be making this again! Thanks for the share 🥰.

Supercharged satay chicken has become a regular meal in my home. It’s yummy

No the peanut is a vital part of a satay 🙂
Best to choose another recipe xx

Tanja

Would it stil taste good without peanut butter due to allergies?

Brigette white

January 6, 2020

Delicious, new family favourite.
I use a 400ml can of coconut cream and I think it doesn’t need thickening with cornflour at all. 🙂

This is awesome! My whole family enjoyed it & that rarely happens. Ever. 👍🏻👍🏻

Help! I’ve accidentally used a 400ml can of coconut cream. How can I fix this?!!

Sharon Hamilton

Best satay recipe ever, I also added mushrooms and beans Only because they needed to be used up. Very tasty

Jo Bate

October 28, 2019

We absolutely loved this, best satay chicken I’ve made. I didn’t have a chilli so I used a tablespoon of sweet chilli sauce. It’ll be a regular in our house.

It’s really ideal for fillets over drumsticks. The drums would add extra liquid to the sauce and take longer to cook are both things to consider if you try it 🙂

Melissa

October 23, 2019

Could this be done with chicken drumsticks?

Kukae

October 11, 2019

Made this this week. Really delicious! Didn‘t have fish sauce, so I didn‘t use it. And only had 800 g chicken breast. The smell… hmmmmm… not the mention the taste! It‘s a keeper for sure!

Made this tonight. Lovely. Made some changes though.
1. Didn’t dice onion but rather cut into 8ths.
2. Sliced up a large red capsicum into 1cm x 2cm pieces and seared it up with the onion and chicken
3. Added 1 heaped tsp of grated ginger to the sauce
4. Doubled the fish sauce (we like it)
5. Reduced the amount of brown sugar down to 3/4 tbs
6. I used Bega Simply Nuts crunchy peanut butter. 100% nuts so no added vegetable oil . Does have salt added though
6. Served with chopped coriander.
7. When making again (and I will) I will double up on the chilli – we felt that was the only thing lacking.

BTW the 2.5 hour cooking time was perfect. Chicken was so tender.

i liked it even better the next night
i didnt measure as i was going on night shift but turned out great
threw some capsicum and cauilflour in as well to
bulk it out
we dont eat much
rice in this house
even my
housemate didnt complain about eating it two days running

Absolutely beautiful!!! So easy and convenient – Fed the hordes. I made double the recipe and it tasted divine. Looked just like the piccie! This ones going on the favourites list!!!

Sylvia Scott

made this with Almond butter as we are Paleo It was absolutely delicious thank you

Kath

October 5, 2019

Totally loved this recipe. So easy to to prepare. Took my slow cooker to the beach and made a double batch for 10 people. Had no complaints at all. For myself when I make it again I will be adding a little extra chili for a bit of a bite.

Rhi

My husband and I recently made this! Used a whole tub of smooth peanut butter 375g and 400ml coconut cream, last 20 minutes added 1/2 cup peanuts. This has been the nicest meal we’ve ever made in a slow cooker, has been added to our favourite list, would highly recommend this meal

Irene

October 4, 2019

My whole family loved this Paulene-thank you.
My alterations were
I had a cheap log of scotch fillet beef that I diced up and did not brown first.
I used Salam ombeck (crushed chillies in a jar) instead of fresh chilli. I cooked for the same cooking time as directed. I made 1.5 times the sauce as I was lazy and wanted to use the whole 440gram can of coconut cream and whole 375gram container of peanut butter.
I did seperately fry the onion and garlic and added them at the end but that’s only because my daughter has IBS and can’t eat them..
I added green beans and carrots at the 2 hour mark then snow peas and red capsicim on top as i served into bowls on top of rice which we microwaved the next night. The satay sauce was thick and tasty , meat was tender and veges perfect.
There is no need to change paulenes revipe at all as it is perfect.
I’ve just mentioned my changes in case anyone wanted to use beef instead.
My favourite!

Anne

October 4, 2019

Absolute hit! I couldn’t get the kecap manis and substituted with oyster sauce, was still gorgeous, could have been hotter in my option but that’s just my taste. My husband wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Lyn

October 3, 2019

Made this dish tonight, delicious! Added 2 teaspoons of curry powder. Served with the Slowcooker fried rice from this site which was also delicious. Will definitely be making theses dishes again

Jennifer Edwards

I loved this recipe…will do it regularly…I just cut the peanut butter down a bit. I also didn’t bother too much about chicken”strips” ..I used chicken thighs and cut them up.

I like a non oily brand of peanut butter (eg kraft) I find that helps 🙂

Jenny Chiml

October 3, 2019

I made this kast night and it was delicious. The only thing was that it was very oily. Did I do something wrong ?

Gin

Made this at the weekend it was delicious. We all loved it and it will be made again.

Love this recipe. Will become part of our rotation. I live it as my daughters do lots of activities and this seems to keep them full

Karren Wylde

Loved it. Devoured in one sitting at my house. Even my fussy 11yr old ate it. Will definitely go on the “make again” list

Bron

Amazing – made it with no changes. Perfect!

Assuming it’s thin strips and you still do the first step I’d say pretty similar times actually 🙂

Stacey

September 30, 2019

If I were to use beef instead of chicken, how long would I cook it for?

Carlie

September 29, 2019

My husband and I really like this recipe. It is very rich so I make it with coconut milk instead of the cream which makes it a little less rich and always add vegetables.

Ricki

September 29, 2019

This was amazing! So delicious and the whole family loved it. Ithe leftovers were even better the next day. Will definately be a family favourite.

Ricki

This was amazing! It was just delicious and the whole family loved it. It will definately be a family favourite!

Pettienne

Delicious. I did it with rice and bok choy one night and capsicum and noodles the next night. Best satay recipe yet 😁

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 26, 2019

I think so? I’m not certain I just got one from the produce section of woolies that’s about the length of my little finger 🙂

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 26, 2019

Yes Nadine I just find breast fillets a little more dry than thigh fillets. You’ll need less time too of course for such a smaller amount 🙂

Nadine

September 26, 2019

Would this work with 500g chicken breast?

Monique Saunders

September 25, 2019

Hi Pauline, is it just a small birds eye chilli you use?

Kerri

September 25, 2019

This one is amazing! I followed the recipe exact. It is so delicious and no heat even with a large chilli. The whole family raved. It is rich but with fluffy rice and lots of steamed veg on the side I can tell this will be on regular rotation

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 24, 2019

It’s a sweet syrupy style of soy sauce … you’ll find it in regular supermarkets:) I use the ABC brand but there are other brands also. Do not use regular soy. It’s not the same 🙂 You’ll see it labelled kecap manis

Dianne

September 24, 2019

Hi what is Kecap manis and is availed at the supermarket. Thank you

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 23, 2019

Ideal if you can get them to keep the flavour balance true as it’s meant to be 🙂

Melissa

September 22, 2019

Is there something that can be used to replace the soy sauce and kecap manis?

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 22, 2019

You could always add the coconut cream on the day instead 🙂

Emmy

September 22, 2019

Would this work as a dump bag? Not sure how coconut cream would freeze?

katejw575

September 22, 2019

Absolutely delicious. My family of four loved it and there was enough left over for my lunch the next day. I used smooth peanut butter and added crushed peanuts as per the recipe suggestion. I will definitely be making this one again.
