Servings: 5 skewers
Cost: $13/ 10€
For the Marinade
- 640 g chicken thigh, boneless and skinless about 4 chicken thighs
- 1 can coconut milk (384g)
- 7 g curry powder (1 tbsp)
- 15 g garlic, peeled 4 cloves of garlic
- 18 g ginger, peeled roughly the same amount as 4 cloves of garlic
- ½ whole red chili cut in half
- 0.5 g coriander powder (1 tsp)
- 14 g soy (1 tbsp)
- 6 whole skewers, soaked
- 1 bunch thai basil for garnish
- 14 g butter, melted (optional) (1 tbsp)
- sea salt to taste
Slice the garlic and ginger into rough pieces and add to a bowl with the rest of the marinade ingredients.
Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces that will fit onto the skewers. Add to the marinade and let sit for at least 2 hours or preferably overnight in the fridge.*If you are planning to BBQ today, soak the wooden skewers in cold water. This will prevent them from burning too quickly. Once the chicken has marinated, fire up the BBQ. Make sure to get it very hot.Thread the meat onto the skewers as evenly as possible.
Once the grill is raging hot, lightly oil a paper towel and brush the grill. Season the chicken skewers heavily with salt right before grilling.
Grill on the hottest part of the grill.
After they're nicely charred on one side, turn over and grill on the other side.Everytime you turn the meat over, brush with butter. Test the biggest piece of meat with a knife by cutting slightly to see if the meat is cooked or use a thermometer and pull off the grill once they reach 165°F. Before serving, baste with a final brush of melted butter and rest the chicken for 5 minutes on the fresh basil. Serve with peanut sauce and enjoy!
Soaking the wooden skewers in water prevents them from burning too quickly on the grill.
The chicken will likely be ice cold after sitting in the fridge overnight. You can use gloves if it's too cold to handle.
