This is a super quick mid week dinner (and I love the fact that I can order all of the ingredients through Delish Deliveries) and I’m not wasting time going to the supermarket (and finding half the shelves bear). Now, I’m not affiliated in any way – I’ve just been using their services for over a year now and I’ve been really impressed.
I also love the text to let me know when my window to order is closing, so I never forget and I’m always so much more organised for the week. Packing four lunch boxes this year has been so much easier knowing I have all the fresh fruit and veggies ready to go (and they even do a killer banana bread – for when I’m tight on time and can’t bake myself).
You can serve this meal ‘family style’ taking all of the individual components to the table and allowing your children to take as much or as little as they like. Someone likes more carrots then snow peas? That’s okay. Someone doesn’t want to have chicken tonight? That okay. It also means that as adults we can add in chilli and the kids won’t refuse to touch their plates.
Recipe: Satay chicken bowls
- 1 packet of rice noodles
- 1/2 kilo of carrots
- 1/2 kilo of cucumbers
- 500 grams of snowpeas
- 250 grams of snowpea sprouts
- 1 bunch of spring onions
- 1 kg of chicken breast
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp white pepper
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 can of coconut cream
- 1/4 cup of peanut butter
- 1 tbsp kecap manis
- fresh red chilli (optional)
Thinly slice the chicken breast and then season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Fry small batches of the chicken off in a wok with a drizzle of sesame oil. Making sure that the chicken is golden brown and crispy.
Julienne all of your veggies. And steam your rice noodles.
In a small saucepan, bring the coconut cream, peanut butter and kecap manis to a simmer, whisking constantly. Once the sauce has come together, remove from the heat and spoon over your chicken and noodles.
We added a little more spicy to our adult bowls with a little diced red chilli – this is optional.
