Recipe: Black Treacle Chicken Satay

I’ve been trying to find a good chicken satay recipe for a while now, so was delighted when I stumbled across this recipe from Lyles. A little Lyle’s Black Treacle gives the satay a signature depth of flavour bringing out a special sweetness that works really well with the other flavours.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Lyle’s Black Treacle
  • 100g crunchy peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 500g skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks

Method

  1. To make the satay sauce put the Lyle’s Black Treacle into a large mixing bowl (not a metal one) with the peanut butter, chilli sauce, soy sauce and lemon juice. Spoon half this mixture into a small serving bowl, stir in 2 tbsp just-boiled water, then cover and set aside to serve with the meal.
  2. Add the chunks of chicken to the rest of the satay sauce in the bowl. Mix well, then cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours (or overnight, if preferred).
  3. When ready to cook, preheat the barbecue or grill. Thread the chicken onto soaked wooden kebab sticks or skewers. Barbecue or grill, turning often, for 8-10 minutes, or until the chicken is done. (Test with a sharp knife – there should be no trace of pink juices).
  4. Serve with warm pitta bread or salad
