  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast cut into one-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon canola or sunflower oil
  • 1 14- ounce can coconut milk
  • lime zest from 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 2 teaspoons crushed coriander
  • 1 tablespoon curry mild powder
  • 1 teaspoon  Sriracha Chili Sauce
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • lime wedges for garnish
  1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 1 hour prior to grilling.
  2. Combine oil, coconut milk, lime zest, seasonings, Sriracha, brown sugar and soy sauce in a large zippered bag. Add chicken and refrigerate 1-2 hours.
  3. Preheat grill to 375°F (a medium-hot fire). While grill is heating remove chicken from marinade allowing excess marinade to drain back into a bag. Thread chicken onto skewers placing 5-6 pieces on each skewer.
  4. Place marinade in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and allow to simmer until sauce is reduced to about one half. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. Spray or rub grill grates with oil. Place skewers onto a prepared grill. Sprinkle chicken lightly with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper and grill until cooked through and golden brown, turning often, about 8 minutes. Do not over-cook.
  6. Allow chicken to rest 2-5 minutes. Serve with steamed jasmine rice. Serve with sauce drizzled over top or on the side for dipping. Sprinkle generously with finely chopped fresh cilantro.
