Ready for a quick, easy snack or appetizer that you can make in bulk and refrigerate for quick future noshes? Here it is, one of the recipes from The Dirty, Lazy Keto No Time to Cook Cookbook: 100 Easy Recipes to Save Money & Time by Stephanie Laska (Adams Media, 2021). Don’t be deterred by the ingredients list. It’s mostly spices you probably already have and some are repeated within the chicken marinade and the peanut sauce. Also, you can use a grill pan if you don’t have a grill or don’t want to cook outside. We say it’s a tasty, easy keto recipe. Here’s what author Stephanie Laska has to say about it: “My kids will eat just about anything when it’s served in an unusual way, like how I prepare Two-Step Satay with Peanut Sauce. I like to mix it up, and skewers are an easy way to go. This tip might seem trivial, but I’ve found that variety (or lack thereof) affects my motivation to cook.”

Cuisine Indonesian
Servings 4



  • 2 (4.8-ounce) chicken breasts, cut in strips no thicker than 1⁄2" (make strips as uniform as possible)
  • 6 oz unsweetened canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sesame seeds


  • 1/3 cup no-sugar-added creamy peanut butter
  • Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 Tbsp 100% lime juice
  • 1 tsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 medium clove garlic, peeled and minced
  • 4 (1-gram) packets 0g net carbs sweetener


  • Preheat outdoor grill over medium heat.
  • In a large Ziploc bag, place chicken and remaining Two-Step Satay ingredients except for sesame seeds. Squeeze out any air and seal the bag.
  • Knead bag to fully coat every chicken strip with seasonings. Put in the refrigerator to marinate while making Peanut Sauce.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all Peanut Sauce ingredients until mixed and sweetener is dissolved. If peanut butter is stiff, microwave covered sauce 10–20 seconds until softened and whisk again. Evenly divide sauce among four small bowls.
  • Divide chicken evenly into eight portions. Thread chicken pieces onto eight skewers.
  • Cook all skewers on the grill simultaneously 13 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally until golden.
  • Serve two skewers per plate. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and include a bowl of Peanut Sauce for dipping.


  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water just prior to use to prevent skewers from burning on the grill.
  • To reduce carb count, substitute powdered peanut butter for regular no-sugar-added peanut butter.
  • Peanut Butter Powder has 2 grams net carbs per 2-tablespoon serving compared to 6 grams net carbs per 2-tablespoon serving of Jif Creamy Peanut Butter. Simply add water (and/or oil) and stir!
