There are some things that I just can’t wait to make again as soon as I’ve eaten it. This peanut sauce was one of those things.

I am forever and always a huge fan of any meals involving peanuts. They go so perfectly with this kind of spicy, salty, meaty dinner.

The recipe for this sauce has a nice bit of heat from chilli paste and it tastes great not just with chicken but also would be fab with other grilled meats or vegetables.

We made the chicken using this cast iron grill which is one of our absolute favourite thing to cook with (however much of an effort it is to wash up!) but this would be a perfect meal for cooking up on the barbecue.

The chicken has a simple sticky glaze of soy sauce and honey with a fat clove of garlic mixed in to give the most fantastic flavour!

The other amazing thing about this recipe (ok let’s be real, it’s all amazing!) is the sesame cucumber. It perfectly cools everything down.

I took the inspiration for preparing this cucumber from traditional smacked cucumber. It seems pretty weird but you give the cucumber a few whacks with a rolling pin before slicing it and it helps to make the cucumber super juicy and tasty.

Combine it with some rice vinegar, sesame oil and garlic and you’ve got an amazing side which would work with so many different dishes!
