This chicken satay bowl is the perfect weeknight meal: it’s quick, easy, and delicious. In Southeast Asian cuisine satay generally refers to any meat grilled on a skewer and served with a spicy, peanut-based sauce. We use Suvie’s powerful broiler to mimic the char from a grill without having to fire up the barbeque. We coat the chicken in a rich and creamy peanut sauce and serve it on top of fluffy white rice. Alongside, a simple cucumber salad provides a crisp, fresh contrast to the rich chicken.
Note: To speed up the recipe you can substitute 1 cup of your favorite store-bought peanut sauce instead of making it from scratch.

While the chicken cooks, cut the cucumber into 1-inch pieces. Set aside in the fridge until ready to plate.
Whisk peanut butter, soy sauce, maple syrup, sriracha, lime juice, and warm water together in a medium bowl.
Season peanut sauce with salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
After the chicken has finished cooking, remove from bags, pat dry, and cut into 1-inch pieces. Remove rice from Suvie and fluff with a fork. Place chicken in a clean, dry Suvie pan and drizzle with ¼ cup of peanut sauce.
Broil for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking until fragrant.
Drizzle remaining 1 tsp sesame oil over the peeled cucumbers and season to taste with salt and pepper. Divide rice between shallow bowls, top with chicken and cucumber salad. Drizzle peanut sauce over each serving and garnish with sesame seeds, if using.
