For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

Traditional Chicken Satay is a bit of a problem if you’re following a diet plan like calorie counting or Weight Watchers.

It usually contains a load of peanuts and/or peanut butter, coconut milk and oil. All of which contribute to a massive amount of carbs and fat.

These Chicken Satay Skewers do not!

There are two parts to these Chicken Satay Skewers;

  1. Marinade the Chicken – you could use Beef instead
  2. Make the sauce

We replace the coconut milk that’s usually used in Satay, with Alpro Coconut Drink.

Then we replaced the high calorie peanut butter with something called PB2.

What is PB2?

PB2 is a powdered peanut butter, that is made with peanuts that are slow-roasted and pressed to remove the fat.

PB2 is all natural, has no artificial sweeteners or preservatives & even has the same consistency and flavour of full-fat peanut butter!

You just mix it with double the amount of water, pretty simple eh?

You can find it on Amazon, and they even make a Chocolate Peanut Butter, but obviously, it’s not suitable for this recipe!

Spice Mix
  1. Combine all spice mix ingredients into a bowl and set aside. We're going to use 1 tbsp to marinade the chicken & the rest in the sauce.
Chicken Skewers
  1. Place the Chicken into a non reactive bowl along with 1 tbsp of the spice mix, and mix well. Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge for 30 minutes
  2. Preheat your oven to 200°C & soak the cocktail sticks in warm water for 10 minutes.
  3. Thread 2 chicken pieces onto each one, and place on a baking tray and into the oven for 12 minutes
Satay Sauce
  1. Fry the onion, garlic, ginger and chilli until the onion is soft
  2. Add the freshly ground spices and stir for one minute then add all the other sauce ingredients apart from the cornflour
  3. Simmer over a medium heat for 10 minutes then blitz with a slick blender/in a blender/food processor until smooth then return to the pan
  4. Turn the heat up to high. Mix the cornflour with a little water, then stir it into the simmering sauce, until it thickens

    1. Hi Becky,

      It might do, though you only need a tiny weeny amount, and it make change the consistency to how it would be with cornflour 😊

  1. Really enjoyed this only thing I would do though is put less sweetener in. I would definitely make it again though. I love making pinch of nom recipes keep it up guys

  2. Hiya,
    on the recipe it says 4tbsp P2B made up with 8tbsp water which is double, on the jar it says make up to a paste with half the amount of water – so 4tbsp with 2tbsp water.
    would 8tbsp not make it really watery?
    many thanks

  3. Hi
    I’ve clicked on the spice mix and it doesn’t say what this is, is it just the average mixed spice which you buy at most super markets please?

    1. Hi Melanie,

      We’ve not tried it with Xanthan gum – you’d need to try it with just a tiny amount at a time and whisk it in thoroughly. Let us know how you get on!

    1. Hi Bryony,

      If you pop the sauce ingredients into a calorie calculator, and then divide between the number of portions, you should get the correct amount 😊
