  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts 3/4 to 1 pound total
  • 10 wooden skewers soaked for about 30 minutes before using
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced


  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder

Peanut sauce:

  • 1/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice


Marinating the chicken

  • In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and stir until well-mixed.
  • Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch chunks and add them to the marinade, stirring to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

Cooking the chicken

  • Thread chicken chunks onto the skewers, leaving about half of each skewer empty for handling.
  • Place them in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake at 450ºF for 10 minutes, flip the skewers and then bake another 5 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Alternatively, you can grill the chicken skewers.

Making the sauce

  • While waiting for the chicken to cook, add all peanut sauce ingredients to a small saucepan. Whisk together over medium-low heat until smooth, a few minutes. Keep warm over low heat, stirring occasionally.


  • Transfer chicken skewers onto a serving plat
