A few weeks ago I was contacted to take part in a campaign run by Instantprint which sounded like a fun idea so I was delighted to get involved. The Cook Club Campaign selected 10 bloggers which I am thrilled to be selected and required everyone to submit a favourite recipe that we have previously created and Instantprint would then reproduce all of our 10 recipes on flyer sized cards and put them into a recipe box for us to keep. We would then choose a fellow blogger's recipe that took our fancy to cook and share on our own blogs.
After eyeing up all the yummy recipies I opted to cook the Gourmet Chicken Satay recipe originally created by Michelle over at Daisy Butter. I'm not a huge fan of satay sauce but my oh my this was delicious! This recipe is perfecting for wowing guests and can be served up to create a oriental feel to it.
400g Chicken breast
Salt & pepper to taste
Satay sauce or make from scratch
I couldn't actually find the recipe over on Michelle's blog so I wasn't sure how exactly she made it whether it was on one plate served on a bed of rice with the sauce mixed in or not so I decided to add a little touch of my own to it.
I enjoyed making this recipe and it was pretty straight forward to cook. Great for a quick meal or light lunch. I cooked the chicken (cut into strips) in the pan on a medium heat until browned then added in spring onion and cooked for a further couple of minutes. Next I sliced up half a cucumber and placed in a side dish for serving. To make my sauce I used coconut milk, peanut butter and soy sauce and heated this until creamy. Once the rice had cooked I served this all up into little ramekin dishes to complete the dish.
I decided to serve this meal in little dishes and thought it would be a nice oriental selection if you are hosting a party or having friends round, I may have to try this sometime.
I included my Prawn and Potato Stir Fry recipe to the box and here are some of the other recipies I was able to choose from. I will definitely be trying these all out in the new year! I love food and finding new blogs to bookmark for inspiration to create new dishes.
I'd like to thank Daisy Butter for the recipe which can be found here on her blog. You can also pick up your own bespoke printed cards over at InstantPrint here to add to your own recipe box.
