Satay Chicken in Baby Gem Lettuce Cups
Perfect for summer party canapés or on their own as a light lunch, these satay chicken cups are as healthy as they are delicious.
The rich, nutty flavour of the satay chicken is perfectly satisfying, while light gem lettuce cups mean it’s a great nutritious option, too.
