What’s great with Satay Chicken
If you need to
feed a crowd, then you’ll need a few sides to accompany this dish
I love having satay food with some freshly cooked rice. For best results, you will need to cook the rice in a rice cooker or on the stove. Alternatives to rice include having it with some noodles in place.
If you have the energy, then you can try making some naan bread to accompany the satay and rice. You can make naan bread gluten-free, so it’s perfect if you’re cooking for people with dietary restrictions.
For something a little different, you can serve this chicken satay with mashed potatoes or even mashed sweet potatoes. Both are great options and are a great way to feed a crowd.
You can serve the satay as part of a larger meal. For example, you can make omelette wraps where the filling is chicken satay. You can also add some side dishes to the wrap, such as lettuce or an Asian-style coleslaw.
There are many different side dishes that will go great with this dish, so be sure to let us know if you have any recommendations.
Chicken Satay Recipe
There are many ways you can change this chicken satay recipe to better suit your taste buds. Below are just a couple of examples.
You can add more peanut butter for a little more flavor and a thicker sauce. Be careful, as adding too much can result in the dominant flavor being peanut butter, which isn’t the worst thing in the world if you love peanut butter.
You can add even more vegetables to the satay mixture. Vegetables such as broccoli, green beans, sugar brooches or peppers are excellent additions. Be sure to add any green vegetables towards the end so they don’t overcook.
