Were it not for my wife, I’d probably spend the rest of my life eating hamburgers, steak, and giant baked potatoes (which, at the time, was fine by me). I might occasionally get adventurous and sit down with a bean burrito, but certainly nothing that would count as ethnic or non-traditional.
- 2 normal to large sized chicken boobs
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 tablespoon curry powder
- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 12 wooden skewers
what to do
Soak the skewers in water while prepping your chicken and sauce. This will help keep the skewers from burning when you place them on the grille (oh yes, there will be grilling).
Cut the chicken into 1″ cubes and then cut each of those cubes in half. The intent is to have chicken that is just thick enough to skewer.
Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl, add cubed chicken, and massage. The chicken does not need to marinate in the sauce for very long, in fact only a few minutes. Place the chicken on skewers and drop them on the grill at medium heat. You’re not trying to sear the meat, this isn’t a steak. Flip the skewer just before you start to see grill marks on the chicken. This makes for the perfect “doneness” without drying it out.
Thai Peanut Sauce Ingredients:1 tablespoon red chili sauce3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter (I like skippy natural)2 tablespoons sugar1 teaspoon white vinegar1 teaspoon fish sauce (if you hate anchovies, don’t read the ingredients on the bottle)Directions:Heat the coconut milk in a sauce pan on medium heat.Add red chili sauce and let it simmer. When you see the oils from the chili sauce rise to the top, add the rest of the ingredients.Stir and let it simmer. The longer you let it simmer, the thicker it will get so take it off the heat when it reaches a consistency to your liking.
Cucumber Salad Ingredients:1/4 cup shallots, thinly sliced1/4 sugar1/4 cup vinegar1/4 cup water1 serrano pepper, thinly slicedDirections:Add everything but the cucumber, shallots, and peppers into a bowl and stir until the sugar has dissolved.Mix in the cucumber, shallots, and peppers and refrigerate till eatin’ time.
