Bariatric Chicken Satay Recipe
I just found this great Chicken Satay recipe after a friend mentioned a wonderful meal they had when they visited San Francisco, last weekend. I already altered this to become a much loved bariatric recipe to share with everybody without all the no-no chemicals and sugary crap. GREAT and treasured dish to compliment your Bariatric Post-Ops Diet (just note that this recipe is more for those a few months out from their bariatric surgery.)
Now our Bariatric Chicken Satay recipe is also perfect for multiple servings, guests, family and kids will love it too!! You will enjoy the rich spicy peanut buttery flavored sauce and it is fun for little ones to just dip the chicken strips.
It is simple to make and it is time to enjoy the new you So get out the grill!! No grill? Try using George Forman’s or a iron skillet. This is especially fun when you want to bring some summer flavor anytime of the year. Serve it with a side of cut up cucumbers and onions and a colorful salad*.
HINT: *I strongly recommend “Feast from the East Sesame Dressing” from Costco. It has a great oriental flavor which will be a FANTASTIC compliment to the Bariatric Chicken Satay!!! It is low calorie, no chemicals and no sugar perfect any day of the week
- 1-2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast – slice into bit size strips
- 5 heaping tablespoons organic sugar free peanut butter – the crunchier the better for presentation.
- 1/3 cup of canned LITE coconut milk – sugar free and no fat
- 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
- 4 tablespoons Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s (Whole Foods, Ralph’s, Von’s or Publix’s will have it) Bragg’s Liquid Amino Acids is the best!! Liquid Amino’s Acid’s is 100% soy sauce but better. It has zero calories, zero sugar and 100% BETTER tasting then all the artificial soy sauces!! You will love it!! Super condiment for anyone after Bariatric Surgery
- 2 teaspoons Red Curry or Chili – this adds the spicy hotness to the recipe so use as little or as much as you wish.
- 1 scallion for a garnishment
Preparation: 15 minutes
First put about 8 skewers in water and soak!! (or save the skewers for after grilling and use like tooth picks)
Cut the chicken into bite size pieces.
Warm (preferably in a sauce pan) the crunchy peanut butter, add garlic, Liquid Amino, chili flakes and add enough coconut milk only to thin the peanut butter to be more creamy).
Put the chicken on skewers by threading through the pieces. (**Many Chicken Satay Recipes will suggest to soak the chicken in some of the peanut sauce. I would suggest to save on wasted calories and maybe soak in some Liquid Aminos to darken the chicken and save the sauce for dipping)
Place the chicken on a grill. Cooking both sides. This should only take about 5 minutes in a George Foreman and 15 minutes on the grill. Make sure to cook thoroughly!
Finish by drizzling some sauce over chicken and save the remainder for dipping sauce. Slice one scallion and garnish your dish.
Makes 8 servings.
