Dipping Sauce

  • 1 Cup Coconut Milk
  • ½ Cup Peanut Butter
  • ½ Cup Chicken Stock
  • 1 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoon Light Brown Sugar Packed
  • 2 teaspoon Curry Powder
  • 2 teaspoon Gluten-Free Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Fish Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Garlic Clove Pressed or Minced



  • Cut chicken breasts into relatively uniform strips, about 1.5″ across. Place in a bowl for marinating (Ideally with a lid), set aside.
  • Whisk together all marinade ingredients except salt and pepper, taste. Season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Pour marinade over chicken strips, gently turning to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 5 hours.

Dipping Sauce

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk together all sauce ingredients. Bring just to a boil, turn heat down, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Chill if desired - can be served warm or cold, we tend to serve it warm.

Assembly and Cooking

  • Soak wooden skewers in hot water for 30 minutes, before threading with chicken strips.
  • Spray grill with nonstick spray, grill until cooked through- juices should run clear.
  • Serve hot, with dipping sauce
