Easy Thai Chicken with a Dipping Sauce

Recipe Ingredients for Thai Chicken Skewers

13 1/2 fl oz lite coconut milk, about 1.75 cups
2 tbsp cilantro
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp red curry paste, Thai-variety
1 tsp ginger root, fresh, grated
1 tsp lime zest
3/4 tsp table salt
1 cooking spray
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, pounded thin, cut crosswise on the diagonal into 16 strips

Recipe Directions for Thai Chicken Skewers

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together coconut milk, cilantro, sugar, curry paste, ginger, lime zest and salt until blended; set 1 cup of coconut milk mixture aside for dipping sauce.

  2. Transfer remaining coconut milk mixture to a resealable plastic food storage bag (or shallow glass container with cover). Add chicken to bag (or container), seal and turn to coat; refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 3 hours.

  3. Meanwhile, soak sixteen 18-inch wooden skewers in water for 20 to 30 minutes(to prevent scorching).

  4. Preheat broiler. Line a broiler pan rack with nonstick aluminum foil (or use a nonstick baking sheet coated with cooking spray).

  5. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Thread one piece of chicken onto each skewer and place on prepared pan; coat with cooking spray. Broil, turning once, until chicken is cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, bring reserved sauce to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and reduced to 1/2 cup, about 5 minutes. Arrange skewers on serving platter. Spoon sauce into a bowl for dipping. Yields 2 skewers and about 1 tablespoon of sauce per serving.
