    Sarah!'s Note:

    Tangy lime and coriander chicken pieces on lemongrass skewers. Perfect for a summer bbq, but can also be grilled indoors. (prep time includes marinade time, so may change depending on how long chicken is marinated for)

    Units: US | Metric

    Dressing

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut approx 3cm (1.2in) from the lemongrass (not the hard white part, the other end). Finely chop.
    2. 2
      Combine chopped lemongrass, peanut oil, lime rind and coriander in a shallow non-reactive dish.
    3. 3
      Cut each chicken breast into 4, and thread onto lemongrass skewers. The lemongrass skewers may bend, if this happens carefully use a knife to cut a slit into the chicken - it should thread on easily now.
    4. 4
      Place skewers in with marinade and turn to fully coat.
    5. 5
      Cover and marinade for 3 hours or overnight.
    6. 6
      Cook skewers on lightly oiled bbq until chicken is browned and cooked through.
    7. 7
      Combine dressing ingredients in a screw top jar and shake to combine.
    8. 8
      Serve chicken skewers over rice (optional) and top with dressing.

      I love lime, coriander and lemongrass - put them together and you have a winning combination! This chicken was so tender (I marinated them overnight) and the dressing very tasty. I've never come across macadamia nut oil so I used olive oil. Thanks for a lovely recipe and it looked great too.
