Slimming world one syn chicken satay sauce
This absolute game changer makes satay sauce a possibility at last… even if you’re following a low fat diet or Slimming World.
I’ve been a diehard chicken satay fan all my life. Weird thing to say? Absolutely, but it’s true. I literally live for the satay stuff and I’m fairly sure it would make it onto my death-row last meal wish list (ya know, if I was actually on death-row). Moving on…
So how have I made this 1-syn magic delight happen? Well, the first thing you are going to need to do is get onto Amazon and order yourself some PB2, which is a powdered form of peanut butter. It’s much less calorific than the real stuff and has a lower fat content, too.
I’d read all about PB2 from other foodies but in all honesty I was reluctant to try it myself just for fear of disappointment. Could I make it taste like my beloved favourite recipe? I thought, no probably not, and gave it a miss. However, last week I bit the bullet and bought some. What did I find? That it's an absolute game-changer! I made up my own little mix which I think makes a damn good substitute for the satay sauce you find drizzled on chicken kebabs or prawns, or to use as a dip. Each tbsp is 1 syn, though be careful if you buy alternatives to PB2, some of the other options are many more!
If you make it, I’d love to know what you think either in the comments or via my Instagram page @slimmingworldrecipes.
1 syn per portion, this recipe will make enough for two but you can easily double it.
2 tbsp PB2 peanut butter powder (2 syns, 1 syn per tbsp)
1.5 tbsp dark soy sauce
A decent pinch of ground salt
A decent pinch of ground black pepper
4-6 drops of Tabasco
Half a tsp onion powder or onion granules
2-4 tbsp water (you may want more or less depending on the consistency you want)
1 tsp granulated sweetener (I used Sukrin Gold as it gives a nicer flavour than others on the market)
Simply mix it all together and serve over a meat or vegetable of your choice. It also makes for an amazing dipping sauce to serve up at parties if you have guests, with little chicken skewers or crudites. In my pictures here, I've done it with breaded prawns and also with chicken skewers.
I hope you enjoy it - please let me know what you think and if you're now as obsessed as I am?!
