Serving suggestions


INSTRUCTIONS

  • Top tip: You can use this time to prepare the chicken marinade and peanut satay sauce simultaneously


For the chicken

  • Rinse and pat dry the chicken thigh or breast. (Chicken thigh is easier to cook and very tender)
  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until evenly combined and coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or ideally a couple hours (or overnight!).

For the keto peanut satay sauce

  • Combine all the ingredients in a medium bowl. Season to taste with coconut aminos and lemon juice. Make sure you mix well


To prepare the shirataki noodles

  • Drain noodles into sieve and wash well to remove smell of brine. Place in boiling water for two minutes, then dry the noodles in a non-oiled pan over medium heat. Set aside. 

To assemble

  • Heat up coconut oil in a grill pan or skillet over medium heat. Add chicken breasts with all the juices and cook until fully seared and browned on both sides, about 5 minutes. Do not let the juices burn, and it they begin to just add-in a bit of the chicken stock to deglaze the pan. 
  • Pour in all the chicken stock once the breasts are browned, cover and cook for 7-12 minutes until fully cooked through. The chicken stock will evaporate as it cooks, so just keep an eye that you don't lose all the liquid completely. 
  • Once the chicken is cooked through, add in prepared shirataki noodles and coat well in the remaining juices. 
  • Serve right away over a bed of cauliflower rice (optional), with cucumber slices, cilantro, peanuts and topped off with the peanut satay sauce.
