Using light coconut milk means this chicken satay stir-fry is still creamy but is way better for you with half the fat! We’ve also added pumpkin, carrots, capsicum and broccolini for extra veg. Broccoli ni is a great antioxidant and is high in vitamin C, potassium, dietary fibre and vitamin E. Gently cook broccoli by steaming or stir-frying to enjoy the great flavour and keep in the goodness of this vegetable.


  • 60ml (1/4 cup) light coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons kecap manis (sweet soy sauce)
  • 2 teaspoons light olive oil
