Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup  soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup  fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup  fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons  crunchy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons  curry powder
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon  dried red chili peppers, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into long strips about 1/3 inch wide
  • 24 bamboo skewers
  • 3/4 cup  coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup  crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup  fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons  soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon  brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon  grated fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon  crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 cup  heavy cream
  • Cilantro and lemon wedges, for garnish

Directions

1. For the marinade, combine 1/2 cup soy sauce, orange juice, lime juice, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, curry powder, 2 cloves of garlic, chile peppers, and cumin in a shallow dish. Thread chicken on skewers and place in marinade; refrigerate one hour (or overnight for an intense flavor).

2. For peanut sauce, in a medium saucepan combine coconut milk, 1/2 cup peanut butter, lemon juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, 2 cloves garlic, ginger and crushed red pepper. Cook and stir constantly over medium heat until the sauce is as thick as heavy cream, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a food processor and puree briefly. Add the heavy cream and blend until smooth.

3. Prepare a covered grill for direct grilling. Arrange chicken on the grill, turning several times and basting with marinade until crispy on the outside and cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and lemon and serve with sauce. Makes 24 skewers.

Make Ahead Tip

  • Prepare peanut sauce as directed above. Cover and chill up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
