Coconut Chicken Satay Wraps

I love chicken satay!!!!!!!!!  It's quick, easy and delicious and a great mid-week dinner or lazy weekend lunch.


Tin of coconut Milk
Sliced shallot
Red chilli (with seeds)
Stick of Lemon Grass
Fresh tumeric
Light Soy
Fish Sauce

Satay Sauce

The left over marinade ( strained)
Red chilli
Peanut Butter
Fish Sauce
Lime Juice

You will also need some sliced chicken and wraps also salad items like cucumber, lettuce, tomato and corriander.

I marinaded the chicken in a tin of coconut milk, a stick of lemon grass, chilli, shallots, fresh tumeric, galanghal, ginger, light soy sauce and fish sauce. I covered the chicken in the marinade and put it in the fridge for fours hours. and if you plan ahead put it in over night.

I sliced up some peppers and red onion and roasted them in the oven with a bit of ground nut oil for around half an hour, the reason for the ground nut oil is it's tasteless and you don't want a Thai peanut sauce and olive oil together, yuk.

To make the satay sauce I drained the chicken and discarded all the bits from the marinade and put the coconut milk marinade to one side. I started by gently frying garlic, chilli and shallot for a few mins and then added the marinade and bought it to the boil as it had raw chicken in it.
I then turned it right down and added the peanut butter, some brown sugar,a dash of fish sauce and the squeezed a lime into it.

I was going to take pictures of the wraps and their construction but was to excited about eating them and forgot!! x


  1. Perfect, our kids would demolish this. They would love this. I'm copying x

  2. My Mum used to make this for me and my brother at least once a week and it was most definatly top five of our favourite things my Mum made us!x

  3. Satay chicken in a wrap sounds like an excellent lunch to me especially with those roasted peppers and onions. I'm getting very hungry thinking about it.

  4. I made satay last night, absolutely love it! I'll be putting it up on my blog, but I love the idea of coconut too!
