Fortunately for foodies like us, Austin is a very diverse town, so there’s just about no cuisine that can’t be found! We’ve had hosts of memorable meals in our home city, from Italian to Thai, South American to French. However, since welcoming our little one, it’s become clear that to indulge more often in our restaurant favorites… You guessed it. It’s time to roll up our sleeves and learn how to make them homemade!

One of my biggest home cooking fears is Asian cuisine. But, I don’t let it stop me! Instead, I stock up on a few basic, inexpensive essentials at my local grocery… paw through a favorite magazine or website for inspiration… and get to cooking!

This time, a gingery coconut milk chicken satay with a dreamily creamy, zesty Sriracha dipping sauce. So easy I can’t believe I hadn’t cooked it before!

Served with my (even easier) Simple Asian Soy-Peanut Noodles and a handful of lime wedges, this meal was a fresh and flavorful twist on our usual. The chicken was slightly tangy and tender, and dipped in the creamy, spicy almond butter Sriracha sauce, sent me straight to heaven. Paired with a chopstick pinch of slippery soy noodles? SO. GOOD.

Try this scrumptious homemade chicken satay, made simple with basic ingredients and easy-to-follow directions. You’ll love the bright, vibrant flavors of this dish. I guarantee it will inspire you to experiment more with Asian cooking at home again!

    I would say these would be killer with your Asian noodles. I love Asian influence food. I would make a fool over myself with little guys—-well unless it was a first date. Then I might be more modest. Second date, however, back off and me at them. Ha!

  8. I’ve never used curry powder before but know there are a few types right? Red, green…or does that just refer to the completed dish and not just the powder. Did you use a specific type of curry powder?

  9. I don’t use any kind of specialized curry powder, just the traditional blend found in most grocery spice aisles.
