Slow-cooker Thai peanut chicken

Please note: Any Amazon links in this post are affiliate links Chicken satay has always been one of my favourite treat dinners, but in the past I have always used the peanut butter as the main component of the satay sauce, very tasty but also high in fat. I decided to try this slow-cooker peanut chicken version with light coconut milk- of course this still contains fat but it has so much flavour and it makes a perfect creamy base for a very tasty peanut sauce. To fish sauce or not to fish ...

Thai style chicken satay fried rice

https://youtu.be/Ivh_wExylU8 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.

Pork satay hot pot

I adore satay sauce, but traditionally I would have used peanut butter and sugar to make a tasty one and unfortunately it's just not a healthy combination!

Thai chicken curry

Thai curry is such a classic- I used to make it at least once a week and always with full-fat coconut milk! If you find a good quality ready-made curry paste it really is the easiest meal to throw together. I have always used the May Ploy curry paste- green or red- it is so good that for me it's not worth all the effort of making my own (well I would if I had a load of time on my hands!). This is what it looks like, and you can get it in most major supermarkets- I've deifnitely seen in ...

Pad Thai

I have a very soft spot for Pad Thai, not from when I actually travelled in Thailand sadly (I was only 18 and had never heard of it then!), but from when I first moved to London with 2 of my best friends in 2003. We moved into a flat in Streatham and my brother introduced us to Pansa Thai (I don't know if its still there- I hope it is!)- after the first time we ordered Pad Thai, it was the only takeaway that we ever had in the 5 years that we lived there, it was just SO GOOD! Anyway, ...
