Ingredients

For the chicken

  • 1/4 Cup soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 3 Pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

For the coconut-peanut sauce

  • 13 Ounces coconut milk
  • 1/4 Cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 Cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon red curry paste
  • 3 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

Directions

For the chicken

Pound the chicken breasts to an even ½-inch thickness between two pieces of parchment paper. Cut the chicken into 1 ½-inch pieces, and set aside.

Make the marinade by combining the soy sauce, dark brown sugar, lime zest, vegetable oil, garlic, curry powder, ginger, cardamom, and salt in a large bowl. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl, and mix until chicken is evenly coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight.

Preheat the grill to high. Thread the chicken pieces on to skewers. Grease the grill. Place the skewers on the gill and cook for 10 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with the coconut-peanut sauce
 

For the coconut-peanut sauce

Whisk together the coconut milk, peanut butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, and red curry paste in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat, stir through the lime juice, and set aside. 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
