  • 200g boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced into thin strips

  • 2 cups broccoli florets

  • 1/2 carrot, sliced

  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced

  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk

  • 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (low sodium)

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1 clove garlic, minced


Step 1: Prepare the Satay Sauce

In a small bowl, whisk together the light coconut milk, natural peanut butter, low sodium soy sauce, lime juice, honey, and minced garlic until smooth. Set aside.

Step 2: Cook the Chicken

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced chicken breast and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until fully cooked and no longer pink. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

Step 3: Cook the Vegetables

In the same skillet, add the broccoli florets, carrots, and yellow bell pepper slices. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender-crisp.

Step 4: Combine Chicken and Vegetables

Return the cooked chicken to the skillet with the vegetables. Pour the prepared satay sauce over the chicken and vegetables. Stir well to coat everything evenly with the sauce. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavours to meld together and the sauce to thicken slightly.

Step 5: Serve

Divide the satay chicken and broccoli mixture into two portions. Serve immediately and enjoy your healthy, low-calorie dinner.
