Thai Ginger and chicken Satay with Chilli Noodles

This is one of the recipes shown at the Cooking in a Camper “Masterclass” at the Volksworld Show in Esher a couple of years ago.I was very lucky to have the support of Just Kampers ( who provided the 2 ring burner, work station and table

Originally when I experimented with this recipe it was called "Penmaenmawr Thai chicken and ginger satay with Chilli noodles!!" but such a long name so we changed it to :-

Thai Ginger Chicken Satay with chilli Noodles

4 pieces of Chicken (ideally chicken breasts)

Medium piece of ginger, peeled and finely diced

3 garlic cloves peeled and diced

Spring onions (optional) – chopped

1 tablespoon of sugar

1 good glug of stir fry oil

6 tablespoons of soy sauce

½ cup of water

2 Teaspoons of Peanut butter (more if you fancy a more “peanutty taste!

Cooked noodles

Lazy chilli (available from most supermarkets – next to the lazy Garlic!)

I always use a decent sized wok to cook this meal in. A wok is a very versatile pan; buy the best you can, it really is essential to have decent pans and utensils, false economy to buy cheap and nasty!


Dissolve the sugar in a decent glug of oil on your burner

Add the diced ginger, garlic and optional spring onions

Cook gently for approx 2 minutes

Add the diced chicken and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Whilst the chicken is cooking, combine the water, peanut butter
and soy sauce in a bowl, keep checking the chicken!

Now, add the water, soy sauce and peanut butter to the chicken.

If you feel it is a bit too thick add more water or if you feel you fancy a bit more peanut taste add another spoonful.

Place lid on the wok and cook a further 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Place the cooked noodles in a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of the lazy Chilli mix together and then place in the wok with the chicken mixture.

Cook for approx 2 minutes until the noodles are warmed through.
Serve! And of course enjoy.
