Another recipe "stolen" from the Cambodian grandmother of a former student of mine. These are very similar to a dish served at a local Cambodian restaurant. At the restaurant you can also get it as an entree with rice. Prep time doesn't include marinating.

  2. Refrigerate overnight (or at least 4 hours.).
  3. When ready to cook, skewer chicken meat with soaked wooden skewers and cook on grill with low heat till both sides are golden brown. (About ten minutes--too long and the chicken will be sawdust dry.).
