Welcome to the forum, Olive.  My sauce often ends up quite green as well, don't worry about it, everything tastes just as delicious regardless of the colour.

Thanks! :D Yes, my sauce is often green too - I don't know why the one in the photo turned out so white - must have not had as much coriander as usual!!  :D

Thanks CC! I'm making it Saturday for a big bunch of people on a Local Organic Food Tour, using our local veges, & macadamias for the satay sauce instead of cashews - yum! :)

Hey just a tip I learnt from my brother's ex g/f who's Chinese, when you're stir frying chicken if you coat the chicken (just enough to coat, not drown) in slightly beaten egg white, it helps retain the moisture in the chicken whilst cooking.  Here's a link to info about it, though they add other stuff as well.  I would think it would work for this dish too. I'm not saying it was dry, but it's even nicer after coating with egg white first.
