Ingredients

Frylight Cooking Spray

6 boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes

6 wooden skewers (soaked in water)

For the marinade:

2 tbsp soy sauce

3 tbsp dark brown sugar

2 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp curry powder

2 garlic cloves, crushed

1 tsp fresh ginger, minced

1/2 tsp ground cardamom

Peanut Coconut Sauce:

400ml tin coconut milk

2 tbsp peanut butter

2 tbsp dark brown sugar

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 1/2 tsp red curry paste

Method

  1. Whisk all the marinade ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the chicken into the bowl and rub the marinade into the meat with your hands for 1 minute until fully coated.  Cover the bowl with cling film and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or as long as overnight.
  2. Thread 6 to 8 chicken cubes onto each skewer then spray with Frylight.
  3. Combine the coconut milk, peanut butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, and red curry paste in a saucepan and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  4. You can cook the chicken on a BBQ or under the grill. Spray the rack with Frylight before placing the chicken on.  Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning the skewers over halfway through.  Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes before serving.
  5. Serve the skewers with the Peanut Coconut Sauce alongside.
