You need this ‘5-ingredients satay chicken stir-fry’ recipe in your weeknight repertoire! It is very flavourful and takes under 30 minutes from start to finish. Perfect for those nights when you contemplate getting a take-out.
As much as I enjoy cooking at home, meal preparation after work can be a real struggle! There were days when all I want to do after work is to lay on a couch in my pajamas watching Netflix and getting take-out.
Who else feels the same way?
Maybe this is not the type of confession I should make to you after all I am writing a food blog on fuss free cooking?
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have anything against getting take-out. I choose to see take-out as a treat instead of a necessity.
In this moment of “weakness”, ready made paste and sauces seemed like a rosy option from reaching for the takeaway menu.
As a continuation of my last post which was on how to make your own satay paste with only 3 ingredients, this post is to show you how I put the satay paste into good use. It has been quite a hit in my household for it makes my weeknight stir-fry looks like a million bucks (in my head anyway) and my beloved has finished every last drop of sauce on his plate!
