Curry Chicken Skewers

This is another winner from Suzanne Somers and comes from her Slim and Sexy Forever cookbook.  We're getting more grilling weather lately, and the next time you fire up your "barbie" you have to give this one a try.  Matt and I recently went to Ravish (the restaurant that catered our wedding) and had some chicken skewers, and he said these were better!  I can definitely say they were easier to remove from the skewers than Ravish's :)  I cooked up three chicken breasts because that's how many were in my package, so I doubled the marinade.  It gave us plenty of dipping sauce and just a couple leftover skewers.  So, keep this in mind if cooking for more than two people, or you want more leftovers.  I'm also going to try this as a freezer meal for when Baby Lucy is here!

What You Need:
  • 3 tablespoons red curry paste (sold in small jars in the ethnic aisle of the grocery store)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (from the can, not the kind you would use in your cereal)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into lengthwise into 4 pieces
What You Do:
  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the curry paste, coconut milk, lime juice, and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. 
  2. Add the chicken and coat well.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Heat the grill.  Remove chicken from marinade and skewer with either presoaked wooden skewers or metal skewers. 
  4. On a hot grill, cook until done, about 3 minutes on each side.
  5. Meanwhile, to make a dipping sauce, bring some leftover marinade to a boil on the stove, then cool slightly and blend in a couple of tablespoons of crunchy peanut butter (I used creamy). 
Happy Grilling!

  1. Not only do the Skewers look and sound amazing... I am drooling over how good that salad looks too, lol. I am convinced that you could add avocado to anything and it instantly becomes the best meal ever. ;)


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
