Peanutty satay sauce is typically loaded with fat. We substituted a few ingredients to lighten ours up without sacrificing any of its bold flavor. Authentic satay sauce calls for crushing peanuts into a paste by hand. To save time and to lighten the recipe, we used a low-fat peanut butter instead. You may already have most of the ingredients for the satay sauce in your pantry and refrigerator. This satay sauce also tastes delicious with grilled shrimp. Serve this dish with a side of snow peas. You could also serve it over pasta.


Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast

9 oz, sliced into 8 pieces, or 8 chicken tenderloins

Table salt

tsp, or to taste

Black pepper

tsp, or to taste

Fat free sour cream

¾ cup(s)

Smooth reduced fat peanut butter

2 Tbsp

Less sodium soy sauce

1 Tbsp

Dark sesame oil

2 tsp


  1. Preheat outdoor grill, stovetop grill pan or broiler.
  2. Thread chicken tenders onto 8 individual metal or wooden skewers (soak wooden skewers in water first to prevent charring); season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill or broil skewers until chicken is cooked through, turning skewers frequently, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together remaining ingredients to make satay sauce. Yields 2 skewers and about 1/4 cup of sauce per serving.
