Thai style chicken or beef kabobs. These are very flavorful when marinated overnight. The recipe listed is for a large group. Perfect for potlucks. (Prep time is marinade time).

Great recipe! Thanks for posting it. My grocery store was out of lemon grass, so I substituted about 2 T of prepared lemongrass paste. After I marinated the chicken I froze it and took it on a river trip. It thawed nicely in the cooler and I skewered it at the camp site then grilled it over coals. I served it with the peanut sauce which I had prepared ahead of time. Needless to say, my camp mates were thrilled, and they are still talking about it. Next time I will try beef and make sure I find the fresh lemon grass.
