- 1 lb chicken breast, cut into strips
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 green onion, minced
- 2 tablespoons minced lemongrass (I grated mine)
- 2 tablespoons curry powder
- 1 tablespoon honey or 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1⁄2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fish sauce
- 1⁄2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (to prevent drying)
- Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
- Place the chicken strips on skewers and pour the rest of the marinade over. Cook on a grill over low heat until the chicken is golden brown all over (I just put mine under the broiler. They really do need an open flame.).
- Serve with mango salsa on the side.
