Chicken Satay Stir-Fry

I had cooked a batch of chicken breasts the other day and was looking for a quick meal to make before my boyfriend and I went and saw a movie.  Traditionally the Paleo Diet does not included peanuts so this is a cashew butter version satay, equally delicious!!


1tbs coconut oil
2 Chicken Breasts diced and cooked
2C snap Peas
1/4C diced Onion
2C Broccoli
1/2C diced Yellow Peppers
1/4C Cashew Butter
1 small chilli finely chopped (you can also use chili paste)
1tbs minced ginger
1tbs minced garlic
1tbs honey
S&P to taste


Cook the chicken in coconut oil until it is almost done.  Remove from pan and add the onion, ginger, garlic and chili, saute until the onion is transparent.  Put this mixture in a bowl with the cashew butter, honey and season with salt and pepper.  Add broccoli to pan and cook 3min, add remaining ingredients and cook until still crunchy but done.  Put the chicken and your wonderful satay mixture into the pan and stir well.  Cook until all ingredients are well combined and nice and hot.  You may like to add a little more sauce ingredients and a little more chili depending on your tastes.  ENJOY!

    As a new player in the Paleo cooking arena, this was the first recipe I cooked. WOW!
    A winner! As I did not have coconut oil – I used extra virgin olive oil & as I did not have cashew butter, I used almond spread 1 tbsp & 1 tbsp of Hummus! Again – WOW -it was filling, yummy & even the kids loved it. Easy to swap in extra veggies as well. This was an easy, nutricious meal that I will make again. Thanks. Will be watching your space regularly now.

This book has been instrumental in getting my energy levels back with training. Whilst this is not Paleo, many of the principals can be adapted and still follow a very clean Paleo diet. Read my post on Paleo and Carb Back-loading HERE

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
