Recipe: Paleo satay chicken skewers

Satay, or sate, is a dish of grilled diced meat, on skewers, that originated in Indonesia. These satay chicken skewers are very popular and can be found in most South East Asian cuisines. You will need to prepare my Paleo satay sauce to go with the chicken. This will add about an hour to the recipe but of course you can make the sauce ahead of time. Find the recipe here.

I only made enough for 3 people but you can double the ingredients if preparing these delicious morsels for a party. The satay sauce recipe makes about 3 cups so there will be enough for a large bunch of people.

Ingredients

  • 10 chicken tenderloin pieces, cut in three pieces each (you can use thigh or breast fillet too)
  • 1 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cumin seeds
  • 1 tbsp Paleo satay sauce
  • 1 tbsp Tamari wheat free soy sauce
  • 1 tsp fish sauce
  • Small bamboo skewers, soaked in water for a few minutes

Instructions

  1. Combine spices, Paleo satay sauce, Tamari and fish sauce. Rub all over chicken pieces. Prepare chicken skewers by piercing four pieces of chicken on each skewer.
  2. Heat a large frying pan with some coconut oil or  use a hot BBQ grill. Fry chicken skewers on medium to high heat for 4-5 minutes on each side. Turn the heat off and let the meat rest for a few minutes.
  3. Serve with a side of Paleo satay sauce, wedges of fresh lime and something like a cucumber and coriander salad.

Preparation time: 15 minutes + 50 mins to make the Paleo satay sauce

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Number of servings: 8 skewers

    I must say, these are absolutely delicious!! I made a beef version and had it with a tropical rice mix and some naan & papadums, fantastic dinner. Can’t wait to try some more of your recipes :)

    I’m actually trying to stick to a paleo diet because I have something on this coming week. I suspect that I’ll feel much better as I know that I have a slight intolerance to dairy and wheat. So discovering your blog came just in time-thanks! :D

  • I love using chorizo to flavour dishes. Pork goes very nicely with prawns and squid and I like the vegetables used in this dish.

  • Marie Rose dressing is a British condiment – mayo and ketchup mixed together To make it paleo friendly I suggest to make your own mayo using olive oil or find a commercial one using olive or worst case sunflower oil, basically avoid canola or soybean as much as possible. This recipe however, calls for yogurt instead. Just use normal full fat variety and instead of ketchup use some tomato paste.

  • This is a bit of a prawn ceviche dish but you could easily grill the prawns after marinating if you’re not sure about eating them raw. Great fibre source salad.

  • Everyone’s favourite meatballs with a difference – no meat! Fresh fish is used, which together with Sicilian herbs and spices creates a light and fresh dish.

  • Make it Paleo: This recipe contains dairy such as butter and cream, both of which are high fat content and low lactose so perhaps you can get away with it. Otherwise you can probably use ghee and no cream, which will make it a bit thinner in consistency but the flavour of the mushrooms will still be amazing. Beef fillet and standard mushrooms can be used instead and you can add some dried porcini mushrooms for that wild forest flavour.

  • You don’t really need to dust the meat with flour as you can thicken the sauce with a little tapioca flour or through evaporation method (aka cook with no lid on for the last hour). Peeled white potatoes are fine in small amounts but feel free to replace with sweet potato, swedes, parsnips or throw in zucchini and cauliflower in the last hour.

  • Use ghee instead of butter if avoiding all dairy (although butter is pretty much fat with hardly any lactose left). Higher-welfare just means free range.

  • Replace 2 spoons of plain flour with 1 tablespoon tapioca flour and add 1 teaspoon of butter or ghee at the end. Cook for a little longer with no lid on to thicken the sauce further.
