Chicken satay wraps are a quick and easy favourite of mine. These are a truly tasty way of getting your carbs, protein, healthy fats and your 5-a-day in minutes.

They are nice and light on the stomach, too. Whip up the marinade, grill the chicken, chop the salad veg and save time by making your family or guests assemble their own wrap.

Ingredients

For the satay sauce

  • 3 tbsp crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp hot chilli sauce
  • 150ml coconut milk
  • 1 lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp soft brown sugar

For the wraps

  • 4 skinless chicken breasts sliced
  • 8 tortilla wraps
  • 150g beansprouts
  • 2 gem lettuces
  • 4 spring onions finely chopped
  • handful green beans
  • 2 carrots grated or thin strips
  • 25g fresh coriander roughly chopped
  • 2-3 fresh green chillis finely chopped

Optional extras

  • chopped peanuts, lime juice, sweet chilli sauce

Method

  • STEP 1

    Combine all the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and stir to coat with the sauce. (If time, leave to marinade for 30mins or so.) Lay the chicken out on a grill pan.

  • STEP 2

    Grill the chicken for 3-4mins each side, or until it’s golden brown. Transfer to a serving dish.

  • STEP 3

    Prepare the salad vegetables, coriander and chillies and arrange in piles on a large plate. Heat the wraps according to the pack instructions. Place the chicken, vegetables, wraps and any extras in the table’s centre for each person to assemble themselves.

Prefer vegetarian? Follow all the steps, swapping the chicken for tofu or prawns. Easy!
