Welcome to Cooking with Chef Jeff

Hi and welcome to my blog. Here you'll find meal ideas that are made from primarily whole natural foods. I try not to use any sugar or sweetener in any of the recipes. At the bottom of the page, you can see a list of the cookbooks that I use. I do vary some from the cookbooks, usually not a whole lot. Feel free to read along and even post some ideas/comments to help me to improve in the kitchen.

Stickless Satay Chicken with Not-Very-Authentic Peanut Sauce

Chicken Ingredients:
1 tbsp oil (I used a mix of Olive Oil and Coconut Oil)
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp curry powder
1 boneless chicken breast
*Note - Expand this as needed for however many people you have

1. In heavy skillet over medium heat, add oil, garlic, and curry and stir for a few seconds.
2. Add chicken breasts and saute until done.
3. Serve with the Peanut Sauce (warming the sauce if desired)

Peanut Sauce Ingredients:
1 piece ginger, about the size of a walnut, peeled and sliced cross grain
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (We love Smuckers Natural)
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp soy sauce or Bragg's Liquid Aminos
1/4 tsp Tabasco or other hot sauce
1 or 2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 tsp Splenda (if desired)

1. Put everything in a blender and blend.
2. Heat (if you desire) and serve over the chicken.

Overall, this was a very good dish for me. I warmed up the peanut sauce and if you don't watch it, it will begin to reduce quickly. Mine is a bit thicker than planned, but it was still very good. If you don't like peanuts with your chicken, you probably won't like it, but it was a very good combination.

  1. Looks good but I don't like peanuts except plain old PB sandwich.
