Easy Satay Recipe
What I loved most about this dish, was that it was so easy to prepare and all the kids ate it happily. It is also one that you can vary easily as well. We used lamb, but I have a hunch that chicken would be even tastier. You could change the vegetables you added, depending on what you might have on hand.

I based this recipe from one in the very handy recipe book Slow Cooker: Easy and Delicious Recipes for All Seasons by Sally Wise. You don’t have to use a slow cooker for this recipe though. You could just follow the steps and simply place the ingredients into a casserole dish and cook in a moderate oven for a couple of hours.

    The timing of this post could not be better! It’s a rainy Sunday here in Brisbane (after a few days straight of rain :( … ) So I was looking for a quick but warm meal for dinner. I am going to try this with chicken (since that’s my favourite satay meat) & I have all those ingredients in the pantry so no need to pop out to pick up anything! This should work out well, after a hard day of watching the V8 Supercars..he he. Thanks.

      I liked that this recipe had basic ingredients that I also had on hand. I think chicken will be super tasty. Have a great day!

  • Brooke October 10, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    Owh, this looks soo yummy! And toddler friendly – at least for my toddler who loves to eat things for dinner that require little to no chewing!

    Good on your hubby for cooking those meals while you are away. When I’m away the most my hubby will do is open a can or reheat a frozen meal!

    • PlanningQueen October 10, 2010 at 3:44 pm

      It was a hit with my toddler, he finished his then sat on my lap and helped me eat mine!

  • The Klutzy Cook October 11, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    Can’t wait to try this – anything new for the slow cooker is fine by me. Plus, I can tell just looking at the ingredients that the kids will love this one. Thanks.

    This looked so delicious that I had to go and get some lamb this morning and give it a go. Its bubbling in the slow cooker as I write. I have made it friendly to our nut-free house using Eskal’s Free-Nut Butter, which is made from sunflower seeds. Can’t wait til dinner!

    • PlanningQueen October 12, 2010 at 9:08 pm

      Thanks for sharing the tip to make it nut free Liesl, I know many readers have kids who have nut allergies.

    Oh I am so trying this recipe… sounds easy to make and tasty for the kids. Yum.

  • Trish October 12, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    This sounds like a family winner ! Thanks !

    • PlanningQueen October 12, 2010 at 9:09 pm

      I can see this is going to be on regular rotation at our house.

    Hi again! Angela from the 1st comment here, back with an update. We made the Satay with the Chicken and YUMMO! It was super tasty as you say. We just did it on the stovetop all in one pan, it worked really well. To top it all off, Hubby made it! The kids took some convincing but the mention of Peanut Butter & Tomato Sauce in it, they thought their Dad had lost his mind..LOL! They did eat it with some coaxing but I think that’s more to do with the stage we are at with our precious 5yr & 3yr old boys than the recipe. Thanks again for sharing the recipe.

    • PlanningQueen October 15, 2010 at 9:03 pm

      I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know Angela! So glad that the chicken turned out tasty, can’t wait to try it mysel. My kids found the idea of tomato sauce and peanut butter hilarious too.
