12 months ago Miss S had a VERY limited range of foods she’d willingly eat so I came up with some ideas based on those foods. Slowly more nutritious ingredients have been added and her palate is improving, slowly, but improving!

Our first experiment was “satay” chicken sticks. Miss S had tried one at a school fete and liked the peanut flavour.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15-20 minutes
Makes: 4-5 servings


The Miss S Satay Chicken Stick – LEVEL 1

2 big Tablespoons peanut butter
Generous squeeze of tomato sauce
Warm water to make it a thick, creamy marinade
Chicken – cubed or strips (we find strips less fiddly)
Bamboo skewers
Spray oil

The Miss S Satay Chicken Stick – LEVEL 2
We are now making our marinade with tinned tomato instead of tomato sauce, and adding a few herbs and spices, just a pinch:
• Garlic
• Chives
• Pepper

Put the peanut butter, tomato sauce (or tinned tomato herbs and spices) and ½ cup of the water in a large bowl and mix it together. Slowly add more water, if required, until you have the right consistency.

Mixing with your hands is the best!

Add the chicken to the bowl and make sure it is all well coated with the marinade, then leave it for as long as possible. 30 minutes minimum but overnight back in the fridge is ideal.

As your grill is warming (or the pan fry if you prefer) skewer the chicken pieces. If using the strips try to fold them so the skewer holds the chicken in 3 or 4 places. Spray the pan with oil to stop the chicken sticking.

Cook on a medium heat for about 5-6 minutes each side. We always choose a sacrificial skewer that will be cut and checked it’s cooked right through - usually the thickest piece of chicken.

Serve with rice and lettuce (or whatever veges your fussy eaters enjoy).
