Where items such as "pieces of chicken" appear, they are calculated based upon an average 4 oz. serving. All food calculations are derived from The Complete Book of Food Counts by Corinne T. Netzer (Dell Publishing, 2000). Some figures are approximate due to variations in such things as the size of vegetables, amount of oil released when spraying the Dutch oven, etc. Additionally, the figures presented are rounded to the nearest whole numbers to facilitate comprehension.

Featured Glorious One-Pot Recipe:

Chicken Satay

Chicken Satay

ingredients | instructions | notes | tips | food counts


My husband declares this dish “insanely good,” and he's right. While satay is traditionally broiled or grilled, this Glorious One-Pot Meal version retains all the flavor yet skips the hassle of threading skewers, basting, and hovering over a grill.



canola oil spray or sesame oil
1 scallion, white and green parts, sliced into thin rings
2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger, or 1/4 teaspoon dried
1 to 2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 cup broth (chicken or vegetable)
1 cup white rice or parboiled instant brown rice
1/2 to 3/4 pound chicken thighs or breasts
1/4 head purple cabbage, thinly sliced/shredded
about 2 cups fresh or frozen snow pea pods
1 to 3 large shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced



Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Coat the inside and lid of a cast iron Dutch oven with canola oil or sesame oil.

In a small bowl, whisk the scallion, peanut butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the broth. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved and peanut butter is emulsified.

Rinse the rice in a strainer under cold water until the water runs clear. Tip the rice into the pot. Add the remaining broth and 1/4 cup water and stir to make an even layer.

Add the chicken and drizzle with one-third of the peanut butter sauce.

Arrange the cabbage on top and pour half of the remaining sauce over it.

Add the snow peas and mushroom slices in another layer and pour the rest of the sauce over all.

Cover and bake for 45 minutes, or until 3 minutes after the aroma of a fully cooked meal escapes the oven. Serve immediately. If the rice is still crunchy, fluff with a fork and replace the lid for another 3 to 5 minutes before serving.

Tips: Make this recipe hot and spicy by adding a teaspoon Asian chili sauce or minced hot pepper. Or make it vegetarian by substituting tofu for the chicken. (Be sure to squeeze out excess liquid from the tofu first.)
