Satay Recipe With Veggies and Chicken (Peanut-Free)

Satay Veggies & Chicken (Peanut-Free)

If you love a rich, creamy satay but are avoiding peanuts, this simple satay recipe is just the solution. This peanut-free satay sauce stands up to the Indonesian classic and is every bit as delicious!

You can make this recipe as written, but the almond satay sauce stands on its own as well, to use as a dipping sauce or marinade. Thank you coconut aminos! This recipe is easily adaptable. Feel free to swap out the veggies listed for your favorites, or those you have on hand.

This satay recipe pairs very well with our Spiralized Zucchini.
