Satay Salad
  • 1kg whole free range chicken
  • 1 tbs. soy sauce oil
  • 200ml satay sauce
  • 1 bottle of Tiger beer
  • 1 stalk of lemongrass
  • 1 peeled thumb of ginger
  • 1 split red chilli
  • 1 lime


  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • Sesame seeds


  • 2 bunches spring onion
  • 1 lemon grass stalk
  • 1 small handful of roast peanuts
  • 1 red chilli
  • 15g fresh Coriander
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • Salt to taste

Special Equipment

  • Poultry Roaster


    In the kitchen:

  • 01 First make the rub for the chicken by mixing all the ingredients together.
  • 02 Next create some shallow cuts all over the chicken with a sharp knife. This will help flavours infuse into the meat and reduce cooking time.
  • 03 Lightly coat the exterior of the chicken with soy sauce then evenly coat with the rub.
  • 04 Finally smother the whole bird with the satay sauce.
  • 05 Half fill the GBS Poultry Roaster cup with the beer followed by the lemongrass, ginger and chilli.
  • 06 Firmly sit the chicken onto the GBS Poultry Roaster cup making sure the chicken is stable and upright.
  • 07 Cut a wedge of the remailing lime and plug the neck cavity of the bird. This will help keep all the scented steam in the carcass and stop it from escaping.
  • 08 Thinly slice the spring onions, lemongrass, chop the peanuts, thinly slice red chilli, and tear coriander. Add all these ingredients to a mixing bowl.
  • 09 Add the lime juice and sesame oil plus a pinch of salt.
  • At the barbecue:

  • 01 Prepare the barbecue for indirect heat, approx. 180°C. If using a charcoal barbecue, you need ½ chimney starter of lit briquettes.
  • 02 Roast the chicken over an indirect medium heat for approximately 1 hour 10mins or until the meat has reached 75°c. It is recommended you probe the meat with an instant read or I Grill Thermometer.
  • 03 Allow the chicken to rest for 10 minutes before carving.
  • 04 Slice the Satay beer chicken coat a little of the satay sauce and serve with the spicy Thai salad
