When in Netherlands you eat this

My husband and I recently moved to the Netherlands. We decided that we should embrace the culture in our new country. Therefore I hereby present to you (drum role), the Chicken Satay. We’ve heard this is the big thing here in the Netherlands. And it’s easy to understand why, simple but enormouesly tasty. Although, however delish this dish may be (and as I said, it really is), I must admit that we are looking for other local food. What dutch food can you recommend?

Lowcarb, gluten free Chicken Satay

Low Carb Chicken Satay
  1. 3 chicken breast filets
  2. 400 g (0,9 pounds) of peanut butter
  3. 1 tbsp of butter
  4. 1 clove of garlic
  5. 1 tsp sambal oelek
  6. 1/2 tsp of ground coriander
  7. 1/2 tsp of ground cumin
  8. 2 dl (0,9 cup) of cream
  9. 1 broccoli
  10. 1 package of alfalfa sprouts
  1. Cut chicken filets in small pieces, salt and pepper and then skewer.
  2. Put chicken skewers in oven hot air 170 C (340F) for 20 minutes or put them on the barbecue.
  3. While chicken is in oven you do the broccoli and the peanut butter sauce. Boil a pan of water, take it of the stove and steam broccoli in a strainer above water until al dente.
  4. Put butter in a frying pan, squeeze garlic in there and fry with spices and lemon.
  5. Add peanut butter and lower the heat (peanut butter have a way of clashing if overheated), stir for a while and then add cream (little by little) while stirring. Do not heat to boil.
  6. All is ready, serve with broccoli, alfalfa sprouts and something pickled.
