Thai style chicken satay fried rice

Super tasty and healthy all-in-one rice dish 

Recently I took part in the Tefal Slimmer’s Secret Supercook challenge– I was asked to create a healthy and delicious dish using the Tefal Actifry, and this is what I came up with!

I adore satay, and I really liked the idea of a healthy satay dish that you could eat on a day-to-day basis. I also love any dish where all the elements are combined so you don’t need to cook lots of sides- the Tefal Actifry is perfect for fried rice dishes as it constantly stirs for you!

For ease and convenience here I have used the pre-cooked rice pouches here- this means you have the full meal ready in just 20 minutes, with no extra pans, however you can pre-cook your own rice for it, you might just need to add some extra water while it is cooking in the Actifry.

You could win a luxury spa weekend for 2! If you pop over the the Tefal Slimmer’s Secret webpage (click here) and vote for your favourite dish (idally mine as I could win a luxury spa weekend too 😉 ) then you will be in with a chance of winning!

If you want to make this dish even lower in fat, you can replace the peanut butter with peanut butter powder!
