  • 1/2 cup(s) lime juice, fresh (4-6 limes)
  • 2 tablespoon(s) ginger root minced

Cooking Instructions

Marinade: In a small non-reactive saucepan, whisk coconut milk with lime juice, ginger, garlic, fish sauce, sesame oil, sugar, soy sauce, crushed red pepper, and salt. Bring to a boil over moderately high heat and boil for 1 minute. Set aside to cool.

Cut chicken and bell peppers into 1-1/2" pieces. Marinate chicken pieces in the coconut mixture for at least 30 minutes (the longer, the better).

Assemble kabobs: place chicken and bell peppers alternately onto 10-12 wooden skewers. Place into a large glass-baking dish. Pour marinade over the skewers. Cover with Saran wrap and place in refrigerator.

Containers: Ten to Twelve 10" Wooden Skewers and a Large Glass Baking Dish (to marinate in).

Serving Instructions

Cooking instructions:
Remove skewers from marinade. Broil approximately 6 minutes, turning once just until chicken is cooked.
