Equipment

  • 16 large bamboo skewers, soaked in cold water

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk light
  • 1 tbsp Asian fish sauce
  • 2 tsp red curry paste
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • pepper
  • 1 1/4 lb chicken cutlets thin sliced boneless, skinless
  • lime wedges for garnish
  • 1 tbsp cilantro chopped for garnish
  • 1 tbsp peanuts chopped for garnish (optional)

For the Peanut Sauce

  • 1/3 cup chicken broth low sodium
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce reduced sodium or Tamari for gluten-free
  • 2 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 tsp ginger freshly grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl, mix the marinade ingredients except the chicken. Slice the chicken into long, thin strips, about 3 inches long by 1 inch wide, and add to marinade. Turn chicken to coat, cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or longer.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the peanut sauce. Combine all the ingredients in a small saucepan and whisk well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until smooth, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
