Summer Satay Slaw With Grilled Chicken Thigh Burgers

We switched out the mayo and made a super-healthy, flavoursome satay sauce to mix in with fresh coleslaw and it was an absolute winner. The satay slaw is ultra-easy to make in batches so it’s great for meal prep, and it also makes the perfect accompaniment at a barbecue.


For the chicken:

✓ 4 chicken thighs (skin on)

✓ 1 lemon

✓ 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)

✓ 1 red chilli (finely chopped)

✓ Pinch salt and pepper


For the satay sauce:

✓ 2 tsp. Myprotein Coconpure coconut oil

✓ ½ white onion (finely chopped)

✓ 2 tsp. garlic paste (or 2 cloves finely chopped)

✓ 1 tbsp. brown sugar

✓ 150ml coconut milk (tinned)

✓ 150ml water

✓ ½ tsp. chilli flakes

✓ 1 tsp. soy sauce

✓ 2 tbsp. Myprotein Peanut Butter


For the slaw:

✓ 2 carrots (chopped into thin slices)

✓ ¼ red cabbage (chopped into thin slices)

✓ ¼ white cabbage (chopped into thin slices)



✓ 4 wholemeal buns (go bunless to cut carbs)


For the chicken thighs:

#1 Preheat the oven to 220°C or 200°C and place the thighs into a roasting tray skin-side up

#2 Squeeze over a little lemon juice and sprinkle the chilli, salt and pepper over, then bake for 30 mins until the skin is nice and crispy

Tip: To cook these guys on the barbeque, get it nice and hot and whack the chicken thighs on skin-side down for 10-15 minutes and leave them well alone (the crispier the better here). Turn and cook for a further 5-10 minutes and you’re good to go.


For the satay slaw:

#1 Whilst waiting for the chicken to cook, heat the coconut oil into a pan on a medium heat, then add the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, and add the garlic paste and fry for a further 2 minutes

#2 Next, add the remaining satay ingredients, stir well and fry until thickened, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally

#3 Remove from the heat and allow to cool a little before stirring through your slaw ingredients


Serve the sumptuous satay slaw over crispy chicken thighs in a toasted wholemeal bun for a delicious meal you don’t have to feel guilty about this summer.
