Muscle Food Chicken Satay Rice Bowls Nutritional Information
Each chicken satay rice bowl gives 351 Kcal which is a pretty lean dinner or lunch but it packs a punch with its Macros. The protein content from each rice bowl is a huge 42g, 26g of carbs and 7.2g of fat and 7.8g of fibre. This actually makes this rice bowl not ok for keto unless you are keeping super low on your carb intake for the rest of the day. Not bag nutritionally at all and we like to serve ours with a side of vegetables to make up to our 5 a day.
History of chicken satay
Satay and Chicken Satay has a mixed history and the first documented history comes from Jakarta Indonesia. There is a believe that Satay is a early form of what is now known as fusion food. The influence comes from the Middle East and believed to have been brought over with the Indian traders operating in Jakarta. Like a lot of Indian food from traders the Indian sailors brought over spices such as Chilli Flakes and using local available ingredients such as peanuts used it to recreate the kebabs they would have seen in Lebanon and other parts of the middle east.
Early versions of Satay probably used whatever meat was available but the sauce is a mix of spices including the imported chilli mixed with Indonesian peanuts ground and used as a spicy, tasty and filling sauce to really add some bite to the grilled kebab skewers.
Satay is now mainly made with chicken on a stick, ground and grilled over a charcoal bbq then served with the spicy peanut satay sauce. Satay is the ideal street food and has become probably one of the best known Indonesian foods served round the world.
The cooking instructions are pretty simple for these rice pots. Open the lid and pop in loosely back on. Pop the bowl into the microwave and set to 800w or as close to this as you can get. Put the timer on for 3 minutes. When the 3 minutes is up, carefully stir trying to avoid the steam and then put back in for a further 3 minutes. Once finished leave to stand for 1 minute for the heat to lower a little with and serve.
Satay Chicken and Rice Pot from Musclefood Review
We recieved the chicken satay and rice pot from one of our Muscle Food Meat Hampers. We often buy these and love to fill the freezer for times when meal prep sadly is not high on our priorities.
These are super easy to heat up in the microwave and we serve them with a bag of microwave vegetables. This one of all the Muscle Food rice pots has to be our favourite and it is a pleasure to do this review.
The taste of the satay is creamy and the chicken is super moist when, the sauce covers just enough of the rice to make it easy to eat. This is a super low calorie dinner and adding in some vegetables does not add many calories and is a filling meal.
Considering how easy these are to store in the freezer, the macros, high protein and the fact they are delicious and cheap. There is no reason not to add some of these Chicken Satay Rice pots to the next MuscleFood order you do. You can choose white rice or brown rice for more fibre.
