Peanut Satay Chicken With Edamame SautéPosted by Katie on Jul 6, 2011 in Asian, Chicken, Main Dish | 5 comments
I don’t know about you, but I’m always looking for new recipes. One of the places that I get quite a few recipes from and at times am inspired from is my local super market. Each Wednesday in the local cooking section the supermarket circulars for the week can be found in the paper. Not only do I look forward to finding out what is on sale (and hopefully save a little money), but I love to read the recipe for the week in the Publix’s ad.
On this particular week it was an Asian style inspired dish based on a classic. Chicken Satay. I’ve made Chicken Satay before. What really intrigued me was the edamame sauté that accompanied this dish. The recipe called for a bag of frozen shelled edamame. What!?!? They sell edamame without the casing? After I learned this– I was determined to make this dish.
This dish is packed full of flavor. Although the meal is not entirely made from scratch it is tasty and easy to make on a busy work week evening. The horseradish sauce in the sauté takes on an almost wasabi like flavoring. It’s very unique and hard to explain. Therefore, you must try it!
