"Creamy" Chicken Satay Salad

Postby Ally » Mon Mar 12, 2007 4:07 pm

"Creamy" Chicken Satay Salad - Serves 4

300g chicken, cooked and skinned and shredded
3 cups crunchy salad vegetables (I use more)
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Dressing:
2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter (no licking the spoon!)
2 tablespoons light sour cream
1 tablespoon low fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce
125ml low-fat natural yoghurt

*Combine the dressing ingredients together in a large bowl.

**Add the salad veges and shredded chicken. Serve in lettuce leaves

Can be served with a jacket potato.

This recipe is from the Weigh Less Naturally Program and the breakdown is as follows:

2 Protein servings - chicken and peanut butter
1/2 Dairy serve - yoghurt
15 optional indulgences - sour cream and mayonnaise

This is a lovely recipe that is quick and easy and tastes delish!! You won't know it is a low fat version!!!

Sounds nice, if I was to make it I'd substitute the Peanut butter and mayo for something more healthy though.

oh dear.....there is nothing wrong with peanut butter when eaten in proper quantities....2 teaspoons per person is quite within the "normal" allowable quantity and if you care to notice it is low fat mayo which also fits perfectly into any healthy eating plan (one teaspoon per person!!!). and if you use anything other than peanut butter it wouldn't be Satay would it?? :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

:D Yeah Kate you could use low fat peanut butter if you want to...I just don't like the taste of it personally and the sugar content is way high, but if I recall I think you really like the lite one?? Go for it mate...it is a really yummy salad (we had it for dinner last night)

You can always use 100% Peanuts Peanut Butter (Sanitarium one is found in the health food aisle and Ruiz brand is found in the fridge section near all your spreads!). Tastes sooo much better! Once you try 100% Peanuts there's no going back cos you can taste the additives in the others!! I have a tsp of peanut butter almost every night and have for the past year or so!

Hey girls....ooopps think I have started something here about peanut butter.....LOL :P

Have they changed the Light one?? Last time I tried it I just found it really gritty and sweet, but if they have changed it I am willing to give it another go.

Hey Em....When Franklins supermarket was around ( a lot of years ago now) they used to do the 100% peanut butter right in front of you!! They had the machine that made smooth or crunchy and they would just do it up for you....it was soooooo yummy......will have to look out for that one in the supermarket that you mentioned....

Yeah Kate you can adjust to your own taste, but just bearing in mind that you will change the calorie and fat content with adding more sour lite cream.....I am not sure what you could use instead of the chilli sauce though...any of you ladies got some suggestions??
