  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (¾-1 lb total)
  • 10 wooden skewers soaked for about 30 minutes before using
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced


  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp cayenne powder

Peanut sauce:

  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup natural creamy peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


Marinating the chicken:

  • In a large bowl, combine all marinade ingredients and stir until well-mixed.
  • Cut chicken breasts into 1 inch chunks and add them to the marinade, stirring to coat well.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.

Cooking the chicken:

  • Thread chicken chunks onto the skewers, leaving about half of each skewer empty for handling.
  • Place them in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
  • Bake at 450°F for 10 minutes, flip the skewers, and then bake another 5 minutes or until cooked through. Alternatively, you can grill the chicken skewers.

Making the sauce:

  • While waiting for the chicken to cook, add all peanut sauce ingredients to a small saucepan.
  • Whisk together over medium-low heat until smooth, a few minutes.
  • Keep warm over low heat, stirring occasionally.


  • Transfer chicken skewers onto a serving plate.
  • Brush peanut sauce over the chicken.
  • Top with sliced scallions and optionally black pepper.
  • Serve while warm.
