I’ve always loved satay sauce, and in my 20’s I’d make this up for my flatmates using half a jar of peanut butter! I saw powdered peanut butter advertised on another website and wasn’t convinced, but my local health food shop ordered it in for me and I’m so impressed! You just add water to make it into peanut butter consistency, and it’s half the syns of real peanut butter! It is expensive (£7.99 a jar on Amazon for PPB the British made one Hale Naturals PPB® 180g Original Powdered Peanut Butter, or £5.69 for the American Bell Plantation, PB2, Powdered Peanut Butter (184 g), but I think it will last well, and after eating my satay I definitely think it’s worth the investment! If you’re looking to make the recipe a little quicker (although it really isn’t a lot of work to do it all) and don’t have time to marinade the chicken, it would still be lovely with just plain chicken served with the peanut sambal. I served mine with rice, griddle courgette, fresh runner beans, lime and coriander.
