DIRECTIONS

  • Combine coconut milk, fish sauce, brown sugar, and curry powder in large mixing bowl and stir well. Cut chicken thighs into generous, bite-sized chunks, and cut breast meat lengthwise into 1/2-inch strips. Add meat to the marinade and mix well. Cover and refrigerate anywhere from 30 minutes to overnight.
  • To make peanut sauce, bring coconut milk to a gentle boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add curry paste and roasted chili paste (optional) and cook 4-5 min., mashing and stirring occasionally to dissolve them. Add chicken broth, fish sauce, palm sugar, peanut butter, and lime juice and cook 1 more minute, stirring well to make a smooth sauce. Remove from heat, transfer to small serving bowl, and set aside to cool. The sauce can be served warm or at room temperature. Alternatively, cover and refrigerate the sauce and reheat it gently just before serving it.
  • Thread meat onto tips of bamboo skewers, and cook on a lightly oiled, hot grill or under a broiler, turning often, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minute Serve at once with peanut sauce.
