Forget separate dinners, forget family dinner time feuds.  Nessy’s chicken satay sauce packs a protein punch, that’s good enough for the whole family.

  • 1 large carrot sliced thinly
  • A handful of broccoli or cauliflower
  • 1 small bag of green beans

  • 1 green pepper
  • 1tbsp light or dark soy sauce
  • Serve with rice of your choosing

For the sauce

  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1/2 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves (I like to use lazy garlic)
  • 1 tsp ginger (again, I like to use lazy ginger)
  • 1 tsp of dried chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp of cumin
  • 1 tbsp of turmeric
  • 3 tbsp of light or dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp of fish sauce
  • 600 ml coconut milk
  • 3tbsp salt cornflower
  • 4 tbsp of Hi-PRO Peanut Powder.  (I found this to be quite a nutty amount and wasn’t sure my daughter would like it, but she did).


  1. Add a tbsp of olive oil into your pan and heat over a medium heat.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli to your pan.
  3. Fry your ingredients until the onion is soft.
  4. Add your dry spices, then add all of the remaining sauce ingredients apart from the corn flour.
  5. Simmer your ingredients in the pan for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Transfer to a blender and pulse into a smooth paste.
  7. Once your ingredients have formed a smooth paste, return them to the pan.
  8. Turn your pan up to a high heat whilst mixing together cornflour and a 1tsp of water, mix well. Add this mixture to the sauce.
  9. Allow the sauce to thicken.
  10. Once the sauce has thickened to your liking remove the sauce and clean the pan.
  11.  Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to your fresh, clean pan and pop it over a medium heat.
  12. Add the other half of your onion and chicken. Fry until the chicken has cooked through.
  13. Add your remaining vegetables and soy sauce, mix well.
  14. Add your satay sauce to the pan.
  15. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  16. Enjoy!
