Peanut Chicken Satay

Looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner that’s bursting with flavour? Look no further than my homemade Peanut Chicken Stir-Fry! Tender chicken pieces are stir-fried and coated in a mouthwatering peanut sauce. Plus, it’s a healthy meal you can whip up in under 15 minutes, making it perfect for busy nights. I like to serve it with rice and fresh crunchy textures with cucumbers, coriander, fresh chilli, crushed peanuts and lime wedges.

  • Total Time: 20min
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale


  1. Sprinkle the chicken with curry powder and salt, toss to coat and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and 2-3 tbsp of water.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on high heat. Add the onion and cook for 1-2 minutes until softened.
  4. Add the chicken, and cook for 5-6 minutes until browned and cooked through.
  5. Turn the heat off, and stir through the peanut sauce. Add 2-3 more tbsp of water to loosen the sauce if required. Serve with rice, cucumbers, coriander, fresh chilli, crushed peanuts and lime wedges.


MAKE AHEAD – This dish is best made fresh, but you can prepare the chicken in advance to make this an extra speedy dinner. 

LEFTOVERS – Refrigerate up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave until piping hot. Add a 1-2 tbsp of water to loosen the sauce if needed. Not suitable for freezing.
