Chicken Satay for Malaysia

As briefly seen on TV in the run-up to today’s race (6/10) Satay is a popular dish in Malaysia so formed part of today’s Formula 1 dinner.

Photos and ingredients below:

Satay Chicken
Sauce: Peanut butter, soy sauce, little bit of chilli powder, water.
Bring sauce to boil in pan, let it simmer for a bit. Coat cut chicken breasts with sauce. Grill. Simples.

Coconut Rice (Nasi Lemak)
Loosely based on this recipe.
Rice, coconut milk, cinnamon, ginger, lots of water to continually top it up.

Served with salad. Apparently cucumbers are big in Malaysia. has a good selection of information about cuisine in Malaysia.

Annoyingly the peanut butter coating had a tendency to fall off whilst the chicken was grilling.  I made something similar before and didn’t have this problem so I blame our electric grill.  Who wants an electric grill?  It doesn’t even have a flame…

Not all my formula 1 meals will consist of chicken and rice.  I promise.

Up next:  China.  Lots of choice here.
