Recipe for Skinny Chicken Satay ...

By Glenys

This recipe for Skinny Chicken Satay is fab and a bit of a cheat in the way it is prepared. Sometimes having convenient ingredients in the store cupboard is not a bad idea for a healthy eating plan. The difficulty often arises in knowing how to use them to their best advantage to produce low fat, tasty meals. This recipe uses a ready-made Asian peanut sauce – known as satay - added to lovely low fat, low-calorie chicken and vegetables to make a delicious stir fry. Eat with boiled rice or noodles but remember to add them to the calorie count. If you want a satay with a bit of zing, add some fresh chilli with the vegetables and before adding the sauce.
