Notes

Makes 8 Use pork leg steak or beef mince instead of chicken. Serve chicken satay pies with rice. Only have 4 ovenproof dishes? Freeze half the satay chicken mixture in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw in fridge overnight and continue recipe from Step 3. Time: Allow extra cooking time for twice as many ingredients. It will take longer, but it's not always double. The pan: It's best to cook in a wider, not deeper saucepan.
