  1. Take the mini chicken fillets and slice any large ones into fingersize lengths. Mix with the soy and sweet chilli sauces. Thread onto skewers, then place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment, cover with cling film and freeze.

  2. To serve, defrost in the fridge overnight and cook at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 10-12 mins or until cooked through. For the dip, combine the peanut butter and coconut milk. Scatter the skewers with coriander leaves and chopped peanuts, if you like. Serve with the dip.

Yum .. everyone loved it! Doubled up on the quantity of chicken and marinade, but only made the suggested amount of satay sauce - and that was more than plenty!

I could not find chicken fillets and so I flattened a chicken breast and then cut it into strips. This made the chicken very tender and was easy to feed onto a wooden skewer. I did not freeze the chicken which could only have helped and it was excellent. However the "satay sauce" was sickly sweet and nothing like the real thing. Given how expensive a tin of coconut milk can be, if you don't have plans to use it up, you are better off buying a jar of decent satay sauce. This one was horrid.

Delicious and so easy! Be careful on the measurements on the sauce, i found we had far too much - although it was delicious!

My husband took one bite and said "when can we have this again?". I am usually quite critical about my own cooking but even I couldn't stop raving about this one! Easy, oh so tasty and didn't take long. I did it as a main course as my hubby loves satay and I am so glad I did as we couldn't get enough. Wish I could give it more than 5 stars!

This was excellent! Everyone at the party loved it, and it was so easy to make. It also looked very nice on the skewers. I used chunky peanut butter in the satay dip.
