The inspiration for this recipe comes from some of our past holiday destinations.  Whenever we travel I like to participate in cooking classes.  Being in a local kitchen is such a privilege.  I try and book small classes in family homes so I can get a real feel for the dishes, cooking techniques, and local culture.

Whilst this recipe is not from any particular class, it has been born of what I’ve learned from all the classes. The key to Asian cooking is learning how to balance the heat from the chili with sweet, salty, and sour ingredients.  The finished Chicken Kebab is fresh, clean, and best of all healthy!

Low Carb V’s Keto Chicken Kebab

The nutritional information given is for the Keto Chicken Kebabs. I have made a few alterations to the ingredients in this recipe to keep the carbohydrates low and therefore suitable to a low carb diet or keto.

If you’re on a very restrictive keto diet you may want to further reduce the carbohydrates in the overall dish by replacing half the salad leaves with Konjac Noodles (no carb Slender Noodles).

I like to dress the salad leaves with a little bit of lime juice and smother the chicken sate with my peanut sauce.  This gives the dish healthy fats, flavour, and substance to keep you feeling satisfied longer.

A link to my hot peanut sate sauce will be provided in an upcoming story. If you have a copy of my Asian Banquet Cookbook you will find a really delicious cold peanut sauce recipe in that book which would also be delicious with this dish. 

Step by Step Instructions Keto Sate Ayam

I use a Thermomix to blend the fresh garlic, ginger, lemongrass, and chili with the chicken thigh fillets. A high power food processor would also work but you may need to process for a bit longer.

Cooking your Chicken Kebabs

You have 2 choices when it comes to cooking the kebabs.  

  1. Place the kebabs on baking paper, spray with cooking oil and bake for 15 minutes, turning once. Bake 180 degrees celsius fan-forced.
  2. Place vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry the kebabs over a medium heat turning regularly.

The leanest method of cooking would be to bake the kebabs in the oven. The nutritional information provided assumes the kebabs are baked.
