 Chicken Satay with Crunchy Cabbage Salad


400g skinless chicken breast fillet
1 1/2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2 teaspoons peanut oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Crunchy cabbage salad

1/4 Chinese cabbage, finely shredded
1 carrot, finely shredded
1 red capsicum, cut into fine strips
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted

Satay sauce

2 tablespoons peanut oil

1. Soak 12 bamboo skewers in cold water for 20 minutes.

2. Cut the chicken into thin strips then thread onto skewers.
